My System Specs

Default

I think it depends on your watercooling system. If you have full cover blocks the temps will be higher because of the ram chips being cooled aswell. Also, think about if you want to have them in series or parallel. I went series and now am regretting and wishing I had gone parallel because one card at full load is at 56* and the other is at 67*. Also it depends on what kind of radiator you have and the configuration it's in. A 480 with 8 push/pull fans will have a better cooling efficiency until saturation than say a 240 with 2 push fans.

Hope that helped some! I'm still learning too though so don't take my advice as gold
