Default Re: Cheap SLI Cooling

If your doing temp testing of any of your hardware I suggest you do it with the hardware under full load. The effects of altering your fan setup will be shown much more clearly under load. I use FurMark for the GPU's and Prime95 for the CPU.

Ok
I played GTA IV for about 45 minutes, actually enjoyed the game pretty much

the GPU temps where at around 65C-69C, which I think it's good

I was playing with both GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 overclocked at 700 Mhz

The GPU ventilators were at max, as well as the 120mm ventilators from inside the computer

When playing like this before the 120 mm fans, my temperatures would have been maybe

70C-80C

the difference was just abysmal

I have 53C and 51C

So I guess those are good values

To be honest the extra 120mm on top of the sound card did the work for me
