2 x 6870 Temp Issues/Crashing Tags: Radeon GPUs Monitors Graphics Last response: November 5, 2011 5:45 PM in Graphics & Displays Share fea5t November 5, 2011 5:24:23 PM For you who want to jump right in - here's my afterburner: Case: Silverstone RV-02. GPU's are vertical in slots 1 and 3, with 2 pci slots of space in between them. MoBo: Asus p8P67 WS Edition GPU's: MSI Twin Frozr II R6870's. The GPU in slot 3 is the overclocked version that is clocked at 920mhz over 900. Newegg shipped me the OC version on accident - what should I do? Monitors: 2 x 1080p >> GPU1 and 1 x 1080p monitor >> GPU2. Load: Very little load. Just internet browsing - no active video's besides maybe a song on youtube with just a pic. -My temps, clocks, and fan speeds are drastically different -Sometimes a GPU will freeze or go all black? Hasn't done this recently, however. -Crossfire is disabled for multiple monitors. Is this normal? When I put my hand in the case everything feels cool. All fans are spinning. Lots of airflow... Any suggestions?

I see nothing wrong with those reports. Check the temps when under load! | Report abuse fea5t November 5, 2011 5:34:08 PM But the bottom card is hotter and they are vertical with excellent airflow... | Report abuse rolli59 Monitor Master November 5, 2011 5:40:57 PM Same cooler both cards? GPU1 more load 52% higher temp, normal! GPU2 overclocked version less load 14% lower temp possible better cooler! Which one has the cooler facing the other card? I would think GPU 1 | Report abuse fea5t November 5, 2011 5:41:49 PM Same cooler...GPU1 is fanning air at GPU2. | Report abuse rolli59 Monitor Master November 5, 2011 5:45:18 PM fea5t said:Same cooler...GPU1 is fanning air at GPU2. GPU 1 cooler is facing GPU2? like most 2x GPU setups. Then that means that the GPU fan is sucking hot air from the other GPU not blowing on it! | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>2 x 6870 Temp Issues/Crashing> Related ressources: ForumAMD HD 6870 Temp . 160 degree celsius, Overheating ForumXfx 6870 2 gb video card high temps ?
