3 PCIex slots (or more) are a must for SLI so you can have the space in between. I wouldn't want 2 of these sandwiched together.

Oh dear

Image seems to have stopped working but it was showing the 480 @ 106c and the 480 SLI at 110c.

Now, to be fair, their overall temps are high, but this will be the problem when 480s end up in badly ventilated cases/warm rooms.
