GTX 570 Temperature
Built my first computer a couple days ago and I've been watching temperatures a decent bit to make sure everything is running smooth. I saw that the max temp for the card is 97C and while my card hasn't got up that high yet it is still somewhat worrying me. Temp normally idles around 38-41C~ and while in use I've seen it hit 82C. Was wondering what I can do to possibly get the temperatures to drop some. In my sig is everything in my computer and here is a picture.

I was considering switching the PCI slot I have the card in to give it more breathing room as I could see that as being a potential issue.

Airflow..is poor and you have it next to the PSU (and heat rises)
you need air to push thru the front bottom(and bottom) of case and leave thru top back(top and top back) of case (possible look at side of case too - over the GPU's)

your problem is your not moving enough air thru the case

Yeah... I thought my card being so close to the power supply might be an issue. I'll move the card to the other pci slot and see how that goes. If I'm not satisfied then I'll go out and get a fan for the bottom of my case.
Thanks for the advice, I'll post an update tomorrow.

Take some time and work on cable management. Your cables are all bunched up in the back of the card which is restricting whatever airflow that may be coming through. Doesn't have to be perfect, just effective, take some zip ties and tidy the cables up tucking them away any where possible, re-route them through the other side of the case if possible. Even under the motherboard worst case scenario.

Here's an example.

I have the same psu and h60 cooler in mine my psu in my df-85 case has to be mouted fan up and I just use a side fan to suck out hot air my temps are

CPU idle 25 load 54

GPU idle 30 load 56 with msi afterburner fan set to 56-60

But my case is like a wind tunnel and always feels cool even tho the psu vents into the case and the h60 is in push pull bring in warm air my temps are cool as a cucumber :P also my house is 74

lol my cable managment needs abit work I think I did good on first build, but now I got a second 580 to add in and a hx1050 psu to swap into it so I think temps may go up on gpu 10-15 degrees but still really cool. My old pc was midtower I find the full tower with lots built in fans and and room to work with jsut makes the air flow better.

BTW Vanderkaum: If thats your build very nice and neat cable managment it looks slick :)

Also I got the same mobo as you and in the booklet it says for single gpu for max proformace use the top most pci-e slot the dark blue one /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

And If you add a another 120mm fan onto your h60 in pull your temps shuld drop 5-10 degrees, thats what I did because of all the posts I read and it works fantastic.

Alright, this morning I switched the card to the top pci-e slot and redid the wiring. Ran them on the other side of the case best I could. Probably still not the best but they definitely aren't all right beside the card anymore so that's a plus.

Right now the GPU is sitting at 36C so I guess that is slightly better. When in use card got up to 76C which is better then the previous 82C but it still seems kind of high compared to what I've seen others say about the temps they have. So I dunno, maybe I'll go out and get another fan, see what that does.

And I'm not quite sure if it's an issue or not but, at certain times (mainly at the minecraft home screen(s)) my card makes a high pitched whining/squeal noise. I've read some people saying it's common in high end cards and others say it was a problem with the card so input would be nice, what is it? Should I be worried?

Once again, Thanks everyone for the help. As awesome as it is having my first custom built it has been stressful and all the help/feedback is greatly appreciated.

looks clearer from your first pic, nice...what case do you use imo case makes all the difference in cooling.

Also about the noiseI have never heard it and I had my card awhile now....

Case I'm using is the Cooler Master HAF922, here is a link to it: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6606.

Edit: And in the diagram on the site it shows a place for a bottom fan and a side fan, neither of which I have at the moment. Have a front, top, and rear fan.

ya side fan in pull to pull hot air out of the case well help alot and well cost you under $10 other then that just put a fan in both places it should get alot more air flow and drop your temps even more.

Alright yeah, i'll definitely go out and get those fans sometime here soon.

Now as far as the noise I'm hearing at times, anyone else have an ideas what it is? Is it an issue? Maybe that is the reason my card seems to be running somewhat hot? Perhaps it is somewhat faulty. Who knows!
