Well, heres 2x 580s. The 580s and the 570s use the same cooler. Hmm, theses have 1x pcie slot in between them. That sure is a tight fit. My guess would be though - if they exhaust out the back off the case, and the front of the card is covered, it looks like it will be able to suck air out of the sides - because of the huge amount of side ventilation on it. So it might be an extremely tight fit, but if i turn the fans right up on the top one, it should be okay. Can you run seperate fan profiles for the seperate cards?

yup, i believe you can run different fan profiles

i wouldn't worry about them not fit, as i have come across some threads where people have them installed onto mobos with pcie spaced 3 slots apart, just the temps you should worry about for now

there isn't any full cover waterblocks for those cards unfortunately, they're designed to run nice and cool on air. could look into aftermarket aircoolers as you mentioned, but it will be hard to find a dcii beater though tongue.gif but i'm sure there should be some 2 slot coolers out there if temps suffer with the dcii cooler

or another possibility is to take off the black cover on your top card, and run the fans 'naked', with the added support of your side panel fans, this should allow your top card's fans to suck enough cold air to cool the heatsink rolleyes.gif

Wow, that picture has convinced me to upgrade to the ASUS P67 WS Revo board for sure! These cards need the extra open slot between them in SLi badly. wink.gif

I haven't had a lot of time lately. Do you want me to test it at default voltage or at 1.1? I'll try to get it done tonight when I get home.

Regarding vdroop on the Matrix 580, here is a screenshot. voltage was set to 1113 mv in GPU Tweak. So, there does appear to be a little vdroop under load. Maximum load voltage is 1111 mv, and minimum is 1098 mv.

Good to hear, I will try those settings out tonight, just when you can check on the card to see of the back part drops like the other models.

Thanks in advance!!
