because, i7 950 with HT Enabled, 3.9 OC with 1.32 Core + Stock Intel Heatsink + Prime 95 = 90C to 100C real fast.
Not 80C stable. It does spike to around 95C, but doesn't go beyond limits that would cause damage, which is 100C. Point is, 3.9 is possible for me on the stock HS.

Would another GTS250, or a pair of them, work best? Just pair up the current one with the others? I'm thinking that may be a good idea, because of the relatively inexpensive cost for those cards. And they are one of the lowest powered cards that can support 3 Way SLI.Edited by Sevensixtyseven - 1/7/11 at 10:37am
