No need to worry. They are passive cards for a reason. It's not like one of those Gigabyte passive 6850 or 6870.

Funny thing that I observed is that even though the bottom card looks like the one with the lesser airflow, the bottom card is always ~3 deg c lower, I even swapped them around and got the same results. CPU is idlling at about 39~44 deg celsius.

Changed the front fan to a S-Flex E at ~900rpm, rear a S-Flex D at 500rpm, Fans on the Noctua U12 are S-Flex Es at ~1000rpm. PSU is a fanless Sesonic X460.
I wouldn't worry about the temps either. For a passive card, 70C is entirely reasonable.
I'm actually jealous of your rig. That thing must be silent. Performance-wise it would be fairly good with SLI as well hey?

Yea, I supposed that should be the case when I bought the cards and PSU.

Silent yes, game perf wise its not that great actually compare to those 590s or 6970s out here. I don't really game that much these days, and I always turn down graphics so that games are more "playable" rather than just being graphically fantastic.

I have this weird habit, my number 1 criteria of buying graphics card are that they must not use the 6pin pcie power and I will readily buy any "best card" there is for that. That being said, but there isnt alot these days which was probably why I was stuck on a 9800GT green for so long. And I'm glad these GTS 450 came along. Next try I will probably buy a pair of 6770 Silent when they are available in Singapore.

Its done!!!! I finally had it with second guessing, doing more research, changing my mind back and forth *no thanks to OCD* I finally just *fark this, this is what I want, enough!!!* and pressed the order and rushed shipping at newegg.

Enroute is the following for my 6th computer build for a fun filled new computer build weekend! My new Dell U2412M will be arriving tomorroo as well! I picked up a new X-FI titanium for $60 that im gonna try out against onboard sound as well.

The only sad part is that newegg was all out of the superclocked evga GTX 570's with reference coolers, so i'll have to recycle my GTX 260 for a bit longer.

Im excited to be trying out my first ROG Asus product and look forward to playing with this mobo. I don't care much for red but that Genie sure is sexy looking! Its gonna be a fuuuun weekend!

Cool! What's your OC plan? Remember you can easily get 4.6GHz just by reading my signature!

What RAM are you guys using with this board? I am planning on a new mATX gaming build, would like to know what RAM you guys use and have had best success with.

@ brackberry ... Check out http://www.overclock.net/14646122-post2042.html
I'd say it's 45% G. Skill Ripjaws X's /or SNIPERS : 40% Corsair Vengeance : 15% other ...
most get 1600's @ 1.5v and most get 8 gb but a lot of us got 16 gb, very few if any with only 4 gb.

Rhialto how can I easily get CPU-Z to register that though ? I've tried w/ SPEEDSTEP disabled in the BIOS but the MHz always seems to drop to 1.xxxx MHz before I can do a print screen.

I run something in the background... For example, I still have Furmark on my desktop for testing so I run it in a 400x300 window.

Look at the bottom of many posts where we all share our config.
