Personally i prefer MSI Afterburner for both my amd and nvidia cards over anything else.

usually gpu1 is used more than gpu2

water temps is consistent throughout the loop, one component won't dramatically affect the others.
if both gpuz and msi ab shows that temp than it is what the sensor says....the temps reported are as accurate as the sensor is.

Those temperatures seem perfectly fine. My HD5870 does around the same. It's idling at 32C. Load is around 40-45C.

Water is an absolute god-send for GPUs I'd say. There simply isn't enough surface area/fan size to properly air cool a GPU when compared to the contraptions we attach to our CPUs.

GPU-z is very good, Everest is good as well.

But I prefer for ATI to use MSI afterburner, and nVidia I use precision.

Your first card being hotter makes sense as its the primary GPU (as was already mentioned).

And those temps seem fine to me.

ok.. i will keep this information in my mind..

yeah, jd... just find hard to believe that 35-40'c for watercooling... compare to crappy aircooling... i dont think i will go back to aircooling again... ;p

GPU-Z will monitor both. With 100% of both Sli and CF setups I've had, card 1 was always hotter, even if it had better cooling. I think you'll notice more of a difference between air and water cooling with a 100% load on the cards.
