Overclocking 7800GTX SLi/ Cooling. Need help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of overclocking the 7800GTX SLi. I was looking around for the coolings I realize.
1. If I overclock with rivatuner would it effect both the video card?
2. Is there going to be a main video card doing the work most of the time or both at the sametime such as performance/heating?
Can someone help me with the above question? Thanks.

I believe that both card divide power evenly and on the overclocking I think it would do both at the same time.
