I'm running my 275's in SLI 8x/8x, Works great. Seriously there's barely a difference between 16x and 8x. You'd only lose like ~3-5 percents of performance or so, nothing more.

I'd try that and see if the temps dramatically change.

No. I looked at some benchmarks lately, you'll lose no more than 5% performance, but usually less than that.

EDIT: HunT3R.! ninja'd me.

You wouldn't notice it.

Ex from 100FPS on 16x you'd drop to 95FPS on 8x/8x . Is it that bad?

From 50 FPS to 48.5FPS . Is it that bad?

I dont think so.

EDIT: Furthermore, With your card not overheating like **** you'd be able to OC it, compensating the minimal FPS Loss

That's terrible. I cant handle that kind of performance loss. Lol. Joking.
Might leave like that and order 2 water blocks then Ivan put them back to 16x.
It's never ending.
Thanks for your help.
