Hi I have two GTX 680's they are running to Hot I think at idle first GPU temp is 69c other is 67-8 when I start to play they reach around 71c maybe higher. Ive seen they should be around 40 on idel right I have a 200mm fan right next to them so maybe it need to go fast lol. Can someone Help me please. :)

You are correct, the GPU's should idle a lot lower then 69C. Make sure the heat sink is installed correctly if you have changed it. Secondly make sure there is good enough air flow in the case.

Those temps are fine.

1 card will definitely be hotter than the other (top one).

You could try manually adjusting the fan speed of the top GPU to keep it cooler.

Edit: My bad, didn't realize those were idle temps. Are you sure thats idle temp? What exact temp does your card get to after playing?

Hi

Are you running more than one monitor?
May 30, 2012 6:20:48 PM

I have two monitors LED 24'' Asus

HX 850W corsair

The guy on the top apply heat sink :/  GPU is a graphics card

If you have more than one monitor connected to a graphics card it uses a higher power state, and so runs at a higher clock and voltage causing higher temps.

71C is not extremely high while playing. Are you manually controlling your GPU fans?

At any rate, max temp is 98C for that card. Many things can affect your temps especially if you are using a motherboard by which there is no space between your two cards. In that situation, they're always going to run hotter.

71C is nothing to worry about.

REally? They will idle that high? My GTX 680 rund 35C idle, with single monitor though.

Just curious... Why are you using the 3-way SLI connector on your 2-way SLI setup?

Looks like you have decent space between the cards and a good amount of fans. Are you using any software to control the fans on the GPUS?

Sorry Im using a 2way sli now im not using any software for the fans, But im using speedfan but not sure how to use it

Yeah, someone is smoking crack if they think they should idle at 69C.

monitor gpu temps on one monitor and play on the other (or run furmark). If your temps only go 2-3 C higher under load, I think we can rule out resetting the heat sink. have you tried other monitoring programs (or even feeling the exhaust)?

okay when Idle they are 68 or something when I play A game Like need for speed, batman, BF3 it is like 70 why is the idle Temp so high...? sorry I do not understand resetting the Heat sink?? Its the Graphics card not the CPU. I dont think the monitors Have anything to do with the Graphic cards, When I touch the cards they are Hot.
May 30, 2012 11:07:58 PM

Omg It is I would never of thought it would be the monitors, How come using two monitors the temp goes so high right idle temp is like below 50, so playing games will be low aswell. Is there anything I can do to stop it over heating like that when using 2 monitors??
May 30, 2012 11:10:50 PM

on my other card though it still 67

so the top card is 45 atm
the bottom is 67 wtf

How come one is very hot and one is normal

Either the cards are not coming out of their high clock mode into idle clock settings, or your fan profiles are set to operate at too low a setting when idling. With to monitors, you should expect the card with the monitors to be around 45-50C.

Looking at your picture, looks like your bottom card is touching your power supply!

Nope there is enough space between them.

How do I set the fan speeds on the cards? (BIOS) or something els
May 31, 2012 6:27:10 AM

Okay I downloaded GPU tweak and increased the fan % Im getting 35c on both cards on idle with 1 monitor. I Have not tried 2 monitors yet But everything seems to be running normal I guess,

Thanks everyone for there help :)

Well I did tell you earlier and explain why.... don't know why I bother sometimes...

Are your two monitors the same resoloution?

Running multiple monitors at different resolutions from one another puts much more stress on the GPU compared to running multiple monitors at the same resolution.

Under 'Fan Control', do you have any listings for your GPUs?

This is true. The idle temp shouldn't be this high, but your max temps in the 70s are not bad.

Yes 1/ 67- 2/68

Yes they are both running 1920/1080
