Single card my 580 never peaked 66C. Something is off with his configuration.
Is your fan speed at 75 percent then?

No, one percent fan speed per 1C as set in Afterburner. Even after multiple runs of Vantage back to back and 8 runs of the Metro 2033 benchmark it never peaked 66%/66C. In game I rarely see over 64C.

It's all about cable management and proper airflow in your case. My room is 20C and I have an AP-14 in bottom intake right below the 580 pulling through standard hex mesh and a Silverstone air filter.

Delta temps of 45C are not bad at all.

35-40% fanspeed to keep it quite so people don't whjne about it being loud. In CF I have them at 60% for all benchmarks I do, and when normal gaming, I have them at 100% and they run around 70c each.

It can't possibly be that bad for the top 6970 card can it?

Maybe because it's on a test bench?

Also why is there a 570 mixed in with the 580s?

You'll be hard pressed to find a 2 slot cooler that's actually worth buying. I'm not even sure any exist for the 580.

You can cool the bottom card and leave the top one stock if you want. It'll probably reduce your top cards temps very slightly at the same time.
yea it is the best from the review i have seen

What is the absolute best after market air cooling unit regardless of price? Aside from water cooling.

And lastly, If installed does it take up more space width wise? I've got to sandwich two cards close together and if increases width space I would be a fish out of water with that option?
It's not hard to install at all; you just have to be careful when installing the VRAM heatsinks around the GPU, as the space tolerances are very narrow. The VRAM heatsinks are a tiny little bit bigger than a VRAM chip. The part that exceeds the VRAM chip must be left to the outside of the card and not towards the GPU, as it otherwise won't give enough clearance for the Accelero to fit. This is specially important as the VRAM heatsinks are mounted with thermal adhesive, which will make it very difficult to rectify if you let pass more than 5-10 minutes. Apart from that it's an easy task and the instructions are easy to understand.

You can watch videos on youtube on how to do it (I did, as it's always nice to see it done in practice, than only on paper - let's you understand exactly what you have to do). AC's site also has the instructions online.

As to the space it takes, see answer below.

You're right about that, I hadn't noticed that when I wrote my answer to the OP's question. OP, you have the card at the bottom too close to the PSU, the AXP won't fit. You must either:

1. Buy a case with more clearance (a bigger case) - the card with the AXP takes up 3 slots, but I would advise that there is space equivalent to an extra slot beneath it so it has room to breathe;
2. go watercooling, as the waterblocks take much less space;
3. just take apart the heatsink on the reference one, clean the old thermal paste, apply some good quality one (I suggest Arctic Cooling MX-4), and put the heatsink back in place. Adding to that, use a side fan on the case panel to help cool the card. That will bring down the temperatures.

do you have space between ur cards?
with your motherboard, I suspect that your cards are right up against each other with very little airflow for the top card. the only way to fix this is to buy a different motherboard or go watercooling. most of the custom aftermarket coolers are 3 slots so it will not work.

Yeah my mother board is a done deal for me....I've got to live with it. It's very high qaulity but the layout forces me to sandwich the cards in my mid-tower only drawback.

If I learn about water cooling, maintence, etc would I be able to shove two together without any space?

I'm a lot like the OP where he's noob with water cooling. And from the post before it sounds like the after market air cooling unit wont work if it takes up more than two slots for either of us.
