The only problem with the dcuII as opposed to say, a sapphire toxic phase change cooler is the exhaust doesn't get channeled out of the case as much. There is a whole lot more hot air being blown off the card and into your case.

I think the best approach is to have a good exhaust fan (cpu exhaust fan) and then make sure there is strong positive pressure in the case.

If you can put a large 230mm fan, or a couple of 140mm/120mm fans right over the video cards it should help a lot.

Could you possibly post a pic of your rig? I have only seen one rig with 2xDCUII cooler cards and it looked awesome.
