6870cf Temps?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody!
I have 6870cf to my system and everything is fine.I dont have any problem with games-bench-apps etc...
I just want to ask one question,please!
Why my top card idle mode is hotter than my bottom card?top-41C/Bottom-35C
I have to say that the pci-e slots in Asus p5e have enough space between them.
The cards are identical!
Thank you!

Heat rises? That's pretty much the main reason why upper cards are always a bit warmer than the lower cards.

Not enough space between the two cards? even if you have enough space, it doesnt mean that it's getting as much as fresh air as the bottom card.


Edit: And yes, its pretty normal ^_^

Edit 2: 41c is not bad, as a lot of people will say,. its the load that matters ^_^ how's the load temp?
