Twin Frozr II Heats Up CPU

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I recent bought a MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 560, and I'm loving it. The Twin Frozr keeps the card under 62C in a modest overclock of 950 core. I came from a reference 5770, which dumped the hot air outside of the back of the case.

The only complaint I have about this card is that it only dissipates heat away from the GPU die, and leaves the hot air inside the case. This, in turn, heats up my CPU, and I can hear the CPU fan turning up really high when I play games, which didn't happen before when my 5770 was venting heat out the back.

Is there any way to "fix" or make this situation better so my air flows out the back? Thanks in advance.

It depends on the airflow characteristics of your chassis.

The main thing you can do to resolve this is improve your case air flow. Remove your PCI-E slot covers, cut out your rear fan grill, put an extra zip tied 120mm intake fan in the DVD bay, arrange your drives so air flows better through the bottom intake fan there. That sort of thing.

I barely noticed the difference from the in-case heat when I changed from a rear-exhausting GTX 285 to the twin frozr 580 but I have great case air flow from previous modifications I have made.

So get stuck in and see how you can get more fresh air into your case.

I have a front intake fan on the bottom, and my rear exhaust is on top.



The intake is next to the HDD bay.

I know Lian Li makes 5.25 (multi bay) fan mounts, might be something worth looking in to!

If you have a side fan, turn it around to exhaust instead of intake
