Hi all, just out of curiosity has anyone else had their second GPU (bottom SLI slot) start showing hotter than normal temps? I have two STRIX ROG GTX 1070's and they usually run at the following temps at idle or doing anything else bar gaming.
Top GPU: 54c 15% fan usage cutting in and out from time to time. Bottom GPU: Never breaks 40c (usually 37-38) no fan usage
I'm wondering if something is wrong with my card or if something else may be using the second card. GPU usage is showing 0-3% which seems like a lot for Windows doing nothing.... I've done full malware scans using Malwarebytes and Windows defender and can't find anything in Task Manager apart from the two listed below that are using GPU resources.
Client Server Runtime Process
Desktop Windows Manager
I feel as though Windows or something may be at fault but I can't pinpoint it. If anyone else has noticed something similar I'd love to hear back. The next step is to switch the position of the cards but I don't feel like opening the case and doing so just yet.
I also uninstalled and reinstalled my graphics drivers. My build is spotless (no dust) No airflow issues No hardware configurations have taken place prior to the temp increase, thus I suspect it may be software related.
