Would like some advice, would be very happy if you could help me.
I have recently got a bigger PSU 800watts ready for my SLi system (2x 8800GTS 640MB). I installed it all on my P5N-E SLi motherboard, but have major heat issues with the system. My current motherboard idle temperature is showing at 54oC on PC Probe. It went to 60oC when I went into a game that I like to play.
Im wondering wether it may be something to do with the case im using and poor airflow to the 2 gfx cards as they are fairly close together? Im currently using a Thermaltake Tsunami case which I purchased almost 3 years ago. Would like to hear you're advice.
I also purchased an additional 2 fans (a 8cm hiper fan and a 'Spot Cool' Antec fan, currently above my 2 gfx cards.
Do you know for sure that its the mother board thats causing the problems? Try reinstalling video drivers, ect. Why not put a fan on the north bridge heatsink (i'm assuming thats the suspected over heating part?)
