Hi thare... i was wondering if any of you with triple sli config's have had the temp of your primary card about 20c higher than the other two. now i run all three of these on a 790i ftw digital from EVGA with a q6600 at 3.6 with 8 gb of DDR3 1800 Mhz from Corsair and my ambient temp is about 74c in my work room. before i upgraded to the 790i, i had a 680i sli that i tested 3 way sli on, which worked perfectly and those temps were all the same!... about 40-41c at idle and under load at about 55c. all of the temps for each card were the same and SLI was probably scaling pretty well.
But when i fired up my new 790i and enabled 3 way sli, popped in Fallout 3 and noticed that my temps were way uneven. 72c on the 1st card, 46c on the 2nd card, and 43c on the 3rd card. card fans were at 100% and the driver i used was 186.18. Card's 1 and 2 are running on pci-e 2.0 so if its the bandwidth diff. from the 3rd card thats making the difference, sucks for me because i cant disable it.
please give your opinions as to why this may happen. most of my games are all certified for SLI and have an SLI-enabled profile.
