With my OC and voltage I get 28-32C idle (depending on ambients...usually 20-21C ambient) and 40-50C load (again depending on ambients and which game)
I have the VRMs sinked with aluminum VRM sinks as well as copper Swiftech RAMsinks......make sure to get the copper sinks for the VRMs AND the Pulse chips.....OMG the digital PWMs get hoooooooot
I have two 120mm fans pointed directly at the VRMs: One at the front of both of the cards with the airflow parallel to them, one below the second card perpendicular to the second card.
I also have a 120mm fan blowing across the PCIE1 card, my NB, and my memory.
My auzentech prelude has a pretty tight fit with the RAMsinks....I had to dremel off one of the columns to fit with one of the Prelude's capacitor's
Here's a pic:
