So, my first experience folding on a high end Nvidia card: My GTX680 does 22K PPD on an 8018 at 78C. Does this sound about right? I'm running 7.2.9 and 306.97. I removed the GTX295 from the system, and am now only running one slot GPU and one slot SMP (nice side-effect, my smp picked up to 15K ppd) I'll throw the 295 into the kid's system when I get it built up this week (motherboard should arrive this morning).

That sounds about right. This will be changing soon though once the new GPU points system comes out.

What's a safe temp for the GTX680 to constantly run at? I threw a GTX570 into my system, and one slot separates the 570 from the 680, with the 680 on top. Therefore the 680's fans are drawing warm air from the 570 one slot away. It's currently hitting 90C-91C, sustained while both cards are folding. I don't really have any other option as far as card placement...The alternative is to throw it into a system that has a 5870 as the main card, but I don't want the AMD and Nvidia drivers interfering with each other!

side mount a fan to feed air to it directly? HAs to be the best thing about the 690II, loads of fan placement.

I changed the fan curves on both cards as a stopgap. Case sounds like a jet engine while folding, now, but temps on the 680 came down to 80/81.

Boy, one of those Ares II style AIO units would be awfully hand right now. As long as you have a large enough case with enough fan placement options, I can really see that idea coming into it's own in dual/tri-sli scenarios.

Sounds like you have rather poor air flow in the case. My two GTX680s don't get anywhere near that. The one using reference cooling hovers around 63C w/ the fan @ 63%. The Twin Frozr 3 stays @ 58C w/ the fan @ 57%.

I seem to have the same issue but not as severe. My 2 GTX 680's hover around 80 degrees with the HW fan controller. With MSI Afterburner's Software Fan Control It hovers around 72 degrees.

How my GPU's are layed out (Ya Couldn't find the proper camera @ 3am )

They are in a HAF 932 with the 230mm side fan blowing on both of them and a 120mm AP-121 blowing on the bottom card. I will be water cooling both of the cards and the CPU later this year so is there any temp fixes I could try in the mean time? Would ghetto mounting another 120mm fan with velco on the side of the HDD case help?
