Much better !

(Room temp. 86f) very Important....

Forceware 71.89 WHQL

Idle:
GPU-1 - 70c
GPU-2 - 73c

Load:
GPU-1 - 88c
GPU-2 - 86c

Bottom of the two is stuck by a very strong double sided white foam sticky tape, Just ask for the tape that take's paint off walls.

Too hold the two ontop of each other I used 2 Twisty Ties the black ones with wires in the middle.

Ok, bear with me I'm confused. :) So it's 86F outside...as in, outside your apartment? Do you have air conditioning? If so, is the temp in your condo still 86F?

Those temps are fine. My primary loads similarly too. I dont overclock and its a very common tempature for SLI. Room tempature makes a substancial difference for these cards and since we keep AC on low here to save money I see temps similar.

If you guys ever want to try lowering those temps I believe you would like the Zalman VF700 coolers. They made a believer out of me. My card temps were sometimes getting into the low 90s under load. Now the highest they get are the mid 60s.

Also, with the Asus sli boards there is plenty of room for installation. :thumbsup:

Course my room temps aren't in the 80s either.
