I know to wait, im not a noob at this just new to due cores and SLI. Gonna get a heatsink once i decide which one would be the best to get. Is AS5 still the best thermal compound to use? I was thinking about doing that with the stock heatsink just for a luagh and see what kind of temps I could pull with just that.

Also when you overclock with SLI using coolbits 2 does it apply for both cards or what? Ive oced my 7900GT's to 550/1.50 and the score in AQ3 hasnt changed from stock so not sure whats goin on with that.
