Very nice, what are you seeing as temps?

I'm looking for a setup for my dual 6800U cards

Temps aren't looking all that great ATM, I am seeing 75c Card 1, 70c Card 2 @ Idle and close to 90c Card 1, 85c Card 2 under Load. These temps are less than before I installed the NV5 but still not very good. I am hoping when the AS5 cures a little the temps will come down, I also have 4 Panaflo 39cfm fans coming to help move air around in my case a little better.

Those of you out there with SLI rigs in a case, what temps are you seeing idle and load on each card?

Im getting about 62 on one, and 65 on the other. Im not sure how accurate they are as the 66.77's im using see to be switching ambient and GPU temps (as did the 67.03's). But, remember my Leadteks have pretty good HSF too!

I am just confused as to how my temps are so high compared to others that are posting. Check this out.

I put a 130cfm 120mm fan right in front of the cards blasting them with air and now under load I get 81c. I would imagine with these NV5's and that 120mm fan I would be seeing lower temps than that. Grrr.

Those temps just don't seem to be right at all :| My box will be done next week, so I'll give it a run myself and see how things fair.

I get about the same temps as you, tret, under heavy load with stock cooling and one 90mm system fan. OC'd too, but I'm also running only 1 AGP 8x.

Your idle temp seems too high though.

I have a P4 system running 1 6800 GT @ 425/1.15 w/ NV5 Silencer and under load it barely hits 70c.

@ idle those temps look high...

my ultra runs @ around 47-50c, and tops out around 70 or less...

Tret....i had a NV5 cooled 6800gt that died ...(rip)

but my question is...befor u got the NV5's was your system extremely loud?

tret
01-23-05, 05:06 PM
Well, my system is very loud but because I have 2 130cfm fans in there. My other system with a NV5 is nice and quiet, more so than w/ the stock cooling.

There was a post on the evga forums saying too many fans causes air turbulence in the case thus raising gpu temps.

I tried placing a aux fan blowing directly between my two cards and the temps went up by 1 degree

They say one 120 fan in the front of your case sucking air in and 1 120 fan blowing out the back of the case along with the fan in the bottom of a PSU should be enough.
