    Around 50's and up with fan at 50% depends on the weather, it's summer here atm so it can reach 65 while @ 60% fan speed as well.. other than that the cards themselves run surprisingly cool. They still get adequate air since they are not completely sandwiched together, on my old X58 UD7 mobo the cards had to be squished together for crossfire now those temps were bad.

    (Talking Celcius btw)

    Man ur lucky.... I have been plagued with hot running 6950's. At max load I see temps in the Mid 70's with the fan up at 70% and when running Furmark I can get temps (Especially on the top card) in the 90C range.....

    I am not the only one either I have looked around the net and there are a bunch of us with this problem. It's not like I have a low air floe case either.

    So are those temps while gaming or at idle???/

    Lets put it this way I get errors when I go above near or above 80 degrees at these clocks for some reason, most likely due to the VRMs.

    Those temps were for gaming, idle is around 37-45 degress depending on the weather so I don't think my ones have the bug fortunately enough.

    Well that's good... I am glade for you :) I am not all that worried... because I am not stable plus my cards are XFX brand so I could always RMA in needed. Plus I will be going water cooling or high end air cooling on the cards soon.

    But I just thought I would ask since I saw another 6950 guy... thanks for the imput

    Ahh that's true I know I would rather buy cooling than put up with an RMA process :laugh: but yeah that sucks quite bad that some of these cards have heat issues.

    I'm still reconsidering things now lol, I'd rather buy local than anything when it comes to a case so I can't use PCCG since they add an extra 50 for shipping :( it's a bit hard to find a good replacement at the moment although I am keeping an eye on the Fractal Design Define R3. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Fractal_Design/Define_R3/ Not sure if it will support my cards, lol.

    Thanx:toast: but I might get a new case, the Raven doesn't have good air intake at all:cry: since I had to sandwich those cards the top GPU is getting pretty hot, max temps so far have reach 90C so I took the side panel off, the temps dropped down to 77C, but I don't really like having the side panel off just so I can play sum games:D, thats where the new case comes in, just not sure which one I should go with yet, my eyes are on the CoolerMaster HAF X case:toast: for now, but Im going to look around more:);)
