Obviously a huge difference in temps when you occupy that slot directly next to both cards. What kind of fan setup do you have?
I just added the little fan box that my case has which attaches to the back of it and sucks air out with a 120mm fan. It dropped temps about 12c load.

Well I was going to say looking HOT but I bet some people would have read as negative comment.

PS
I also like the cat.

Physx doesn't really hurt fps it seems.

Or he went quadfire by including the cat. Cats are good when you dedicate them to physics, not good at much else unfortunately.

It just runs physx on the CPU... you know physx does run on CPUs, just not so well thanks to nvidia.

Some more benchmarks. They are rather disappointing as only one game ran.

Solitaire did not run as I lost right away.


Minesweeper faired even worse than Solitaire.


IE9? Nah, only supports IE8. Damn.


However, Minecraft did run perfectly which is all that matters.
