Just tried to build a clean system with some basic aircooling.
Sytem air flow is good enough to keep the 7950GX2 cards at 45 C idle and about 59C load. Cards use a custom BIOS with 20 MHz delta and 550/750 stock clocks. They will run 600/800 24x7. Great with a 2560x1600 30 inch LCD monitor. Benchmarks: 3Dmark06 - 9300 with a single card, 9500 with quad SLI. 3DMark06 - 15K with a single card, 15K with quad. CPU bound, big time. Need a Conroe to wake the system up! Just waiting on the Intel 590 SLI motherboards to release.
