Gonna install a fan, like Vega on [H]/XS suggested.
That's ****ty. You would think a fancy cooler like would work better than the stock one.

But with chips like on the GTX 480 or 580, nV had to already use a great cooler. Just building a similar performing Dual Slot cooler is a challenge, not to mention a better one. That's why I try to avoid non-reference designs but this time I had no choice.

My temps are similar to Vega's. But the guy on the EVGA forum has much lower temps somehow...



Yeah I'm definitely going to change the fan profile.
Looks like his fan speed is always over 90%

Well at least you get to play that's the most important thing.
Edit: change your sig

Crysis was only at 2560x1600. It's too demanding for Surround.

Because of the Surround setup, other games might also be a challenge temp wise
iRacing should be in the green zone, that's important.
I'll see how that goes over the weekend.

You should try out the new 266.77 drivers. They have some nice speed improvements.

They should have used the reference cooler! Never had any issues with those, even with a X-Fi sandwiched right between the SLI'd cards.

But not even that is possible with this POS cooler. For example, if I use two cards in SLI and place the Xonar right below the bottom card, that card runs 12C hotter than the top card! The top card has 2 free slots to breath in this case. If I place the Xonar above the Palit, temperatures are equal (1 PCI/PCIe slot breath room per card).

Did quite some testing today and Tri-SLI seems impossible to run in a normal configuration with a closed case. Luckily 2-way SLI works fine and I can at least use the 3GB VRAM. That's what I'll probably end up using.
I'm going to keep the 3rd card anyway until the Crysis 2 Demo hits

If they would fit with SLI and your sound card.
