I was only gonna be down while I had family staying but last night my primary 980TI decided that 92 degrees celcius was a good temperature to idle at. I've got them switched around and working again but I'm hesitant to put either card under an appreciable load without constant supervision. I'll join again when I'm confident my computer isn't going to set itself on fire.

Don't you have any software that can run the fan at max speed to cool your GPU down? Like for EVGA they have Precision X. I have found that the fan on GPUs don't automatically spin up as temp goes up.
I set my fans on my GPUs to run at 30% at 30c to 100% at 45c+.

On my folding GPUs, I just set the fans to run at a fixed speed (as they are folding 24/7) to keep the temperatures down.

I've got it set to scale fairly aggressively to temp through Precision X. The fan on the card and the fan on the radiator were both at 100%. My computer sounded like it was ready for takeoff.

Nah. Works fine on its own and as secondary. Support suggested a potential vram issue only present when the card is primary in SLI. Since everything works now it's a wait and see.

Here's to getting back in the fold when you can. Better safe than sorry. I'm happy that it seems to be under control for the moment.
