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! m 0 l fea5t November 5, 2011 5:34:08 PM But the bottom card is hotter and they are vertical with excellent airflow... m 0 l Related resources Need to unlock max temp of my R9 295x2's - Forum Upgrading ATI 6870 x2 (CF), $450 budget.. - Forum GTX 770 vs AMD 6870 x2 - Forum Is it worth it to ditch my 2 R6870's for a single 270x? - Forum Would an Antec 620W PSU support 2x Radeon 6870 (CF)? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
