View Full Version : 6800 Ultra Temperature Increasing with New Case

After a few months in my cheezy little Antec Lanboy with 2 fans, I finally bought a Wave Master with 4 fans (one at the top instead of the USB panel). My GPU core temperatures are up 5 degrees on average from what they used to be (51 idle with the Lanboy). I thought perhaps the case was poorly cooled, but CPU and motherboard are down in temperature by 3 degrees. Am I missing something??? (for other components see sig)

Maybe it is time to try an NV5?

It's probably what happened with my case. The case was too big to get fresh air to the videocard through the front intake (would just reach the MB but had to pass 4 HD's). So I just added a side fan and now its nice and cool. I got a total of 5 fans now not including PSU, GPU and CPU.

I leave my case open, try it.

yeah side-panel fan helps out a lot... u need lots of fresh air deliver the the ultra's fan which is very close to the back of the case -- farthest point from the front fans. Sometimes it helps if just remove slot cover right beneath ur videocard, drops the temp by a 1-2c, too
