When you overclock you go through the same method except you select a button that links the cards together forcing the same clock on both cards. The biggest factor when going sli is keeping the top card cool. Sli typically will leave the gap between the bottom and top card pretty small starving the top card of air. You need to put the higher ASIC card on top and hope it has the larger better cooling system also. It can be done certainly as many people including myself did it but when searching for that second card it's very important to consider how you plan to cool it.

My only option is air. I dont have a case big enough to go water.
But I do have a 120mm fan mounted right where the 2-way card setup's gap should be (had it for when I had 390 CF) so hopefully these cards dont get as hot as AMD 390s ^_^
My only issue is finding the same card, here in Canada they're still at their pre-10 series prices. so people on ebay are still asking very high. just grabbed the above one for $550 ($426.20USD) and finding another to match is impossible. as the rest are asking $700-800 (543-620usd), and if I were to grab one from a US listing, I'd pay about $55usd at my door or more.
I'll be happy with a 1400-1500, is that the avg OC or like the "Highest", would rather an avg as I'm aiming for 24/7 use. (I mean my pc is always on) would not like to always keep changing clocks just to play at 5fps more.
thats why I asked if mixing different cards was fine, seems its the same principle as AMD's, just have to use a SLI bridge like before (670)
Should I bother with the fancy bridges?! or the ribbon is fine for 1440p and 4K when I go up that high(~2017), been out of the Nvidia loop since 2012.
thanks for the answers.
