I have the same cards (5879) but they are replaced by 2 GTX480, the cooling is good if you look at it from a point of view that it cools the GPU better than reference cooler and doesn't generate noise......but it also helps in building up heat inside your case and doesn't work will when being sandwiched with another card.

I had to drop my lower 5870 to the lowest PCIe because the upper card was breathing the hot air out of the lower card.
