    Overheating crossfire Setup 280X

    Even when I had the case off a 120MM fan rated at "79 cfm" on top blowing away from the cards, and 2 other fans blowing from the sides at the cards.. it was still in the low 90s or high 80s(the top card), also the sound was ridiculously loud. Right now I am wondering if I just got a defective...

    Overheating crossfire Setup 280X

    Yeah, these cards are pretty ridiculous. I wish Hard and others would test these cards in Crossfire before giving them a yay or nay.... Anyways, back to the topic. I put two fans pointing in from either side(one from outside the case) the other behind the cards. I think I am going to give...

    Overheating crossfire Setup 280X

    yeah, it is taking lots of heat out when both the cards are running, even when just that top one is running it is dumping out a lot. As far as turning up the intake, I can't since those fans don't have controllers.The air inside the case isn't really terrible though, so I think I will just try...

    Overheating crossfire Setup 280X

    I am using one of the exhaust side panels now(120MM), but the other one is blocked by a pretty big heat sink on the CPU. When I get home I am going to try cutting some metal off the case and fitting a 120MM pointing at the sandwich card and see if that helps. Also yes, I am trying to mine with...

    Overheating crossfire Setup 280X

    Individually they get around 74C and 78C(i have this on the bottom). Might not be a bad idea to put a fan at the end. Will probably have to cut up the hard drive bay to do it though. Do you think I should be pushing air at the gpu or pulling it away. I will post some pictures when I get...

    Overheating crossfire Setup 280X

    Hi guys, I am having some issues with heat on my new 280x's. I bought two Gigabyte 280x tri fan cards ( and the top card almost always hits 95C(I stop the card around this point) or higher after 5-6 minutes of use. I have picked up...

    Nevada Gives Green Light to Self-Driving Cars

    I know I am incredibly excited for this. I can just imagine a freeway clear of traffic, since the cars know how to break up traffic jams.

    epic ATT network fail

    I agree, this sounds like a phone issue. I sent my brother a text message once calling him a "stupid bitch" and every time he received a new message it would be me calling him a "stupid bitch", this went on until he reset his phone two days later...

    Windows 7 AMD Bulldozer Hotfix

    These AMD fans are complete nut jobs, some of the actually think that the media is trying to smear AMD and make them look bad. A few others think a bios update/patch will fix everything and a few more think if they compiled the program with gcc it will make everything better. This launch...

    AMD Performance Drivers out.

    Does this have any increase with single card configurations, or is this a crossfire only fix?
