I'm certain those cards are fine at those temperatures. Wouldn't the engineers have thought of tri-fire air setups in design and allowed the thermal threshold to be that high?
post #35 of 55
or a spitfire facing up on card 1, facing down on card 2, and any vga cooler u want on 3 (vf3000a, shaman, AXP, accelero pro, t-rad, etc)

Why dont you use the GPU bracket that comes with HAF X? Install a Kaze 3000 there and i will push all the air u need between the cards.

What temps are you getting, I made a system with quadfire all stacked up and i had temps in the 75-79c range. Have you tried spacing the cards a bit. Similar to how the 6990 does it? just force some space between them. I think a piece of cardboard should the the trick. I used an msi 890fxa-gd70 and the cards never sit flush together, they always had at least a 1/4 inch of space between the fan parts

I would sell all 3 and get a 6990, at least it will run cooler and you won't max it out on a phenom
