Well,

It's in SLi so it's always going to get hot, I don't see many people going SLi unless they watercool it for this very reason.

Yes it's hot, but it is still within thermal limits for the 580. The only way you're really going to resolve this is by getting a small W/C loop for these beasts and get around it that way.

Watercooling is perhaps your best bet or put a fan closer to the inlets of the cards

No,

I'd probably go with a half decent 240mm rad and a couple of blocks.

Water cooling is the way to go. I have dual 580's each hooked up to Koolance water coolers in one of my rigs. It's also in a Corsair 800D case so I have the room to maneuver.

It's not really that hard, it's just research and planning. But even the VGA coolers aren't goign to help that much.
