If RMAing isn't a possibility then another option I've considered is to run the Gigabyte card as the primary (in the top PCIE slot) so that the MSI fans are getting cool air from the bottom of the case and not warm air from the Gigabyte card below it.

I would need to underclock the gigabyte card though to match the (950mhz) MSI card right? Is this setup advisable or should you always, always use the least overclocked card in the primary slot? If I do this, do I need to mess with the voltages or just the clockspeed/memory slider in MSI Afterburner?
