Default Re: SLI Picture Thread

my rig is in the sig, everything is currently running stock

I am seeing lower to mid 50s on both cards at idle and mid to upper 70s at load, the lower card always runs about 5 degrees cooler than the upper card

Man you guys are loaded! I think an OCed FX55 is the only thing that WONT be a bottleneck for these cards.

I figured the same thing that you said about it pulling warm air and that is why I put a 130cfm 120mm fan right in front of the two cards as you can see in the picture and there is a lot of cool fresh air coming from the front of the case being blown across the cards.

How many fans do you have blowing into your case? You may have a problem of negative pressure in the case when it's all closed up. You have 2 NV5's and a rear exhaust fan blowing air out but only the one blowing air in. The NV5's like to have positive pressure in the case, or at least mine does. If I slow my front intake fans down, the amount of air being exhausted out the NV5 drops to the point where I can barely feel it but if I crank up the front fans, the air start pumping out the back. And that's with 2 front fans and 1 NV5. You have 2 NV5's and 1 front fan. (Well, that's all I can see in the picture anyways).

I have two 80mm fans in the front for intake and the 1 exhaust plus the PSU and the NV5's.

I know that they are all hungry for air though because the top exhaust of my case has no fan and it is sucking in a good amount of air (it pulls a dollar bill onto the grill and holds it there)

I have two 39cfm 80mm Panaflo fans coming for the front of the case and I suppose I could use the top blowhole to bring in cool air if for nothing else but to help positive airflow.

It looks like we'll have a review of the Arctic Cooling NV5 Silencer in the coming weeks. They are sweet looking.

Do you lose the use of One of your PCI slots running 2 * SLI ?, from the pics it seems like the fan is obstucting the slot.

Actually I'm almost certain the FX55 would still be a bottleneck in some situations unless you have exotic overclocking going on (3+ GHz).
