Default New Theory: GTX 7900 with 512 MB killed the motherboard ;) (Overheat !)

Hello,

I noticed in the nvidia control panel the temperatures of the these two
graphics cards (sli) are 50 degrees celcius in idle mode !

That's pretty high !

Add to the fact that the gfx fans are probably spinning very slowly because
of idling,

Add to the fact the output holes are very tiny,

Add to the fact there is little spacing between them,

Add to the fact the airflow in the case was not optimal,

Add to the rumor the mb sensor is near the cards,

and there you have my new theory:

The GTX cards killed the motherboard ! Overheat !

Some questions:

1. Is it possible to underclock these cards ?

2. Is it possible to make the fans spin a bit faster even in idle mode ?

Bye,
Skybuck.

You should've sticked with the all-conquering FX5200 that you loved so
much...

Hello,

Some questions:

1. Is it possible to underclock these cards ?


I don't know and I am not sure I want to know. Using the drivers
probably not, but using Rivatuner and low-level control this should be
possible.

However I wonder why one would like to build a dream machine with SLI
and all, and then underclock CPUs and gfx cards... doesn't make much
sense to me.

My machine is by far not a dream machine (asus p5b-dlx, e6600, 7800gtx)
all running at default, but it can barely be heard even during CPU- and
GPU-heavy gaming. (Noctua cooler and CPU/case fans. No crashes, no
overheating, almost dirt cheap (second-hand mobo and gfx).


2. Is it possible to make the fans spin a bit faster even in idle mode ?


On my 7800gtx, I am still using the original fan, and it cannot be
controlled by using the drivers settings. However, Rivatuner offers
low-level control on the fans' speed, and I can set them manually or
automatically. I leave that control to the driver itself, that takes
care of this correctly. For a SLI setup though, I don't know if the fans
can be set separately.

You should concentrate on having a decent machine running silent at
defaults, so you can enjoy it, rather than be bothered all the time by
all the problems the previous one caused you. You had a dead mobo, SO
WHAT ? Move on now.

What are you smoking?

Add to the fact the output holes are very tiny,


Plenty big enough for your tiny prick.

Please people, do IGNORE him, he is multiposting in every group, he is sick,
he says he knew everything about computer and he knows nothing.

Not high at all. Most later models run much higher than any processors will
run. My SLIed 8800 GTX cards default alarm is a lot higher than 50c. That is
about normal at idle. 70+C is not unusual with most newer cards under
stress. With just average airflow those temps would not hurt your MB at all.
You worry far too much. Your MB died.......that is it. They do just die you
know. Get over it.
