simply flip the cards with eachother, see what the differences are then.

The issue I think is with your case. Its a nice quiet case but I would have gone with something that has room for more fans, more pressure pushed through the case etc.

I am sure the cards run at different temps reguardless by slight deviation, maybe try to swap the cards and see if they get closer to eachother if it pleases you.

As it is, the cards are fine.
this is what's going on when benchmarking my graphic cards with heaven software it is actually showing that my bottom card is having the higher temps and when benchmarking just a single card it is monitoring my top card but the thing that confuses me is that on precision x it shows that my second card is the main card but I have my monitor plugged in to my first card so I am not really sure if its my bottom card that is having the higher temps or the top card having the higher temps . but if it is my second card that is having the higher temps can it be because my power supply is mounted to the bottom of my case and I have it pulling air from the inside of my case which is pulling air away from my graphics cards ?

IF this fan is close to the cards, you are just creating a zone of negative pressure, possibly choking the card.

if they are blower cards!

if they work on a more open fan design i believe that the exhaust since it is the shortest path for hot air to exit would help with mitigating the build up of hot air. but only if you have a more positive pressure intake! and only that and a rear exhaust fan working.

my setup, since i had dual 140s on the top of my case was to use the side fan as intake, to create a single direction for air to move, and eventually remving the fan, as it got on my nerves.

so try out both!

I dont think blower versus open fan wont matter for the bottom card, I would have side panel fan removing air and bottom fan feeding air in.
