It depends... when I was doing research on the HR-03, I saw someone who had put two of these on 8800's in SLI, each cooler facing the opposite direction. You can mount these upside down due to the sealed heatpipes. (mine is mounted upside down). But if your CPU cooler is too big your going to have a problem fitting the top one because you'll have to mount it upwards to allow space for the second card... and the bottom one is gonna be a tight squeeze too. I hope this makes sense.... I'll look for the link where it was done so you can see a picture.
I may have been a little off with the SLI mounting procedures.... not 100% sure... but here is a link to Legion Hardware
showing two HR-03's mounted in SLI.... the only problem is the way they did it there was no room for fans. The temps are still respectable without fans because the heatsink is so large, however. You may be able to mount them differently, but they take up a ton of space and restrict the other PCI slots. Here is a link to the Overclock Intelligence Agency
, where they tested it without a fan and with 3 different kinds of fans.
I still think they are great coolers... just not for SLI. I would only recommend a cooler of this size for single card setups, sorry.
