I'll let you know if I test it. Like I say, in order to do so I'd like to be in a non essential raid role. If I do that soon, I'll sound off. IMO your best bet would be a single GTX 480. MGPU does not behave well in AoC. It works but has pants scaling.
Now I'll add idle temps to what I noted earlier about load.
Stock idle temps for a single 470 in my case was 42C. Single HD 5870 was 33C. Below are stock idle SLi/Crossfire numbers.
So around 10C idle variation and around 16C or more load. In AoC the only difference I felt between them was the amount of heat coming out of my case
