    What kinda temps we talking about? Temps in the 80's are pretty normal for the heavy load, 90s could cause troubles.

    Not sure, I didn't check the temps with any programs, I just used the finger on the heatsink test. Two were OK, the other one I said "OW!!!" after touching it.

    Install the EVGA program from my OC post and it will tell you temp. Not sure if it's from just the first GPU or an avg of all, but at least it should give you a figure.

    I find out it is better to leave all doors off of the case, and add a small cheap desktop fan (< $10.00 ), to get lower temps for everything in the case.

    I do it for all my computers. I don't have any pets to collect hairs and other stuff into the case. You can see if you need to clean out all the dust bunnies in your case.

    Happy Holidays.
