Windows 7: Stock SLI GTX 680 Idle 50C

18 Dec 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Stock SLI GTX 680 Idle 50C

I have looked into overclocking and how realised that my graphics card runs way too hot. Idle temps at stock are around 45-50C and under 99% load it reaches up to 80-90C. The 2 card's are the reference NVIDIA card and the Galaxy 2gb GC. I have 8 fans in my case; Intake: (1x bottom, 4x side, 1x front) Exhaust: (1x back and 1x top) The Galaxy card is roughly 2 years old, and the nvidia reference is brand new.

What are the fan speeds on the two cards? I suspect that they're both running at low speed.

I set my own fan speed pattern and my temps have been running fine, idle around 30-35C
