    GPU SLI Question

    Can't find find this information online. But do any of you think i should pull one of the cards. I never noticed before it seems like one of the cards is always running hotter. Is this a sign of one going bad.
    Thanks

    One card being hotter could be simple matter of air flow. One card is more in the open than the other, or fan is blowing across one and not the other, or one is exhausting its heat right onto the other one? Does seem pretty hot though. Make sure GPU fans/heat sinks are working and not full of dust/fuzz. I have a dusty house and need to use a can of compressed air on my computer a couple of times a year (done outside!).

    Thanks

    I would see if you can adjust the fan speed on the second card. Some cards have this option. Also, I would try to get more air into the case, if you can.

    Yeah i have different setting for the fans. I guess never noticed until few weeks ago when i playing Dying Light and it kicked into 90c. The other one stayed around 70c.
