My System Specs

Default

On the blower(reference design) vs non blower (every non reference these days) it totally depends on the case cooling and the space between the cards...


mine struggle with heat ( well the bottom one does) when I have them in the top 2 slots, space em out and they perform much better.
As for non reference, well if you have a side fan especially but basically any higher end case these days is good enough to supply enough air to the cards to allow them to breath.
That said it will obviously vary between rigs with different air-flows, ambient temp and most ofall how much noise you can stand.
