My System Specs

Smile Video Cards

I didn't test with Prime 95, if I remember correctly I had gpu z running as well during the run as I had those 2 cards so close, they were almost touching. That's why I ran the stress tests, to make sure things wouldn't run too hot, as when 1st installed, the cards were really warm. It really made a difference wit h the extra fan. The 480 was so much cooler that I didn't even check the temps. Mind you, a 90 cfm fan is moving a big pile of air. The HAF X fits the bill for high air flow and the fan is only 16 dbs so you can't even hear it.

Edit: I just remembered that we were running the folding program that analyzes your system profile and had to stop it because of the thermals on the gpus.
