SLI temps

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm going to keep things short and simple. GPU 1 is working as hard as GPU 2 but is ~5-10 degrees higher. It may sound stupid but is this because its the main display or should I be concerned?

Simple thermodynamics, heat off the second card rises increases the temp of the first card

When 2 cards are SLIed, the main/primary card (with the monitor connected to) does a little bit more work. So, you might try to connect your monitor to the lower card. This move might bring down 2-3C temp.

And, you might need to go into the BIOS to make the lower card/slot as the primary video slot.

Last, as I suppose you are already using the two blue PCIex16 slots for the 2 GTX470s, this means you have 2 empty slots in between the cards. So, you setup a fan to blow more fresh air into the space if your two GTX470s have the reference cooling.
