My System Specs

Smile Video Cards

Each has their own good and bad. When I had a Cosmos with a pair of 5970s in xfire, the 2nd card hit 101 C. I mounted a fan behind them and the temps never got above 86 C after running Prime 95 for over an hour.
Then I switched cases to a HAF X. It comes with a fan shroud that mounts behind the gpus. The 5970 was a bit too big without modding. I installed a single 480 and added a 90 cfm fan. I can put my hand on the card at any time without any heat at all. If you go sli, an extra fan behind the gpus couldn't hurt. Perhaps they can install one for you.
