Also, another thing you can try is hanging a 120mm fan off of the top card to help push some air at them. Also, try to find a hard SLI bridge as it forces the cards apart a little more allowing more airflow as you can see like in my old rig:

Ah so I'd be running the card in the 4x slot....seems hard to believe there wouldn't be a big performance hit.

Well remember a PCI-E 2.0 x4 slot is equivalent to a PCI-E 1.0 x8 slot, it seems to work fine for AMD cards in crossfire. I mean, the slot is there its worth a try at least, right?

There will be noticeable dip in performance. You're looking at 1-2% which is worth the lower temps and noise you'll get in return.

I made the switch with my 470s and i have't regetted the 1-2% difference.

Try it out and i bet you won't go back. Hope this info helps.

If the reduced temp allows me to OC will I potentially end up with better performance than I'd have sticking with 8/8 and no OC or is the 4x limit a hard wall

I don't think the card would work all that well in the x4 slot because I think that slot goes through the SB and doesn't have a direct link to the CPU but no harm in trying I spose.

I think the best advice here is the custom fan profiile, your temps on auto are high but they are ridiculously high, and your temps on 100% fan speed are excellent. So what you want to do is just find a happy medium between the two with a more agreesive fan curve than stock but that still is quiet enough for you to live with.

I would try and stick a non conductive piece of rubber or something in between the two cards to create a little bit more space before I would strap a fan directly on them as that shouldn't be necessary with these cards. But the idea of looking at your case airflow is a valid one, the P183 isn't the best cooling case around so you will have to try and do all you can to get fresh air to the cards.

With all that said I still stand by these as my recommendation to you for your situation, any other cards would only have been worse. These external exhaust coolers are the best you can get for your situation.

Ya I meant to thank you personally for warning me about the tight fit. I think working on my air flow, accepting max temps in the 80's, and a fan profile is definitely the way to go. I'll report back with the results.

Temps in the 80's at load is not bad at all. Let us know how it works out.

Don't know if I mentioned to you yet but the max temp as specified by Nvidia is 97C for your core, so with a little wiggle room I would want to stay below 87C but anything around there will be fine, so what ever temp headroom you gain by adjusting your fan profile you can put right back into it by OCing because 87C isn't bad.

Anyone have any thoughts on those stripes of red hue I was seeing? Made me really nervous.

If you are referring to flickering red screen only when gaming in full screen mode then it is most likely a bad sli bridge.
