Gtx 580 SLI temperature

Hi everyone!

Just a question regarding the gigabyte gtx 580 super overclock edition temperatures. I have two of them slotted in my HAF X case, working on getting another exhaust fan on the top but I doubt it'll help too much with the cards...

Basically my top card is running at a crispy hot 90-92 degrees in games under max load whilst the other is at 70s-80s. I'm just concerned if the temperatures are too hot? Or are these temperatures fine?

These graphic cards are fitted with 3x windforce cooling and everywhere I go most people are able to achieve 70c at highest temp.

Do these temperatures sound fine? Or should I start worrying...I coudl replace the HAF x default side fan (which seems to have very little effect on the cards) with another and make it as an exhaust fan to get rid of all that heat.

Cheers

  1. Use MSI Afterburner to set custom fan profiles. The cards should not be reaching those temperatures, even though they are within safe specs.

    Ive recorded through MSI Afterburner and the fans are set to 100% in game. But the temperatures still steadily rise to 90c
  3. Wow, hmm. Try taking the side of the case off and see what the temps are then.
  4. Are the cards spaced very well? The heat they dump will heat one another.
  5. They're spaced out, installed on the g1.sniper2

    If anything I would have thought the second gpu would be getting hotter because the top gpu is dumping all the heat below.
  6. The heat from the bottom PCB is being sucked into the fans on the top card.
  7. That's hot.....I stop OC'ing at 82C under OCCT's GPU test. I have had better luck with the Antec 1200 / DF-85 cases in SLI builds. Extra fan behind the HD cages blowing to rear gets me about 4-5C on that top card.
