I run my vanilla cards at SC speeds with 85% fan no problems and rarely goes over 65c.
I ran the stress test for the GPU:

At 96% Load and Fan maxed out at 85% speed it sits at 98C.

I have a nice case... I have a front fan that blows the air directly at both video cards from the fron as well as this huge fan that blows at them a bit from a side.

The only thing that I can think of is that the cards are sitting next to each other. Then the front fan might not be strong enough.

Hmmm... running at 98C all the time is gonna fry my damn motherboard LoL

What should I do?! Probably work on getting some front trubo fan for more direct air flow?

Wow, yeah those cards are right on top of each other, with reference coolers. Not the best choice for a dual card setup tbh. The top card is sucking in hot air directly from the bottom.

If your mobo won't let you seperate them a bit, you might want to try spot fans (cheap route), or getting them wet (not so cheap route).

While people are complaining that these cards are running hot, that's generally not hot enough to cause artifacts.

Run them individually to rule out which card is malfunctioning, or artificially increase the temps to induce potential instability.

Based on that pic you may want to do some cable management as well.

wow they're sandwiched. you need atleast 1 more slot of separation to get more decent temps. put a fan pointed directly to the cards from the side. you can also put a fan on the back of the cards in a push/pull config with the cards to help the cards exhaust hot air. that's why I don't like boards like that

Well, I could take one of them down to the 3rd PCI express BUT:

PCI Express 2.0 x16 2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (dual at x16/x16 mode) - Used Now
PCI Express x16 1 x PCIe x16 (at x4 mode) - Empty

It would have to be the PCI Express x16 at 4x mode. I am not sure how is that going to affect performance?

Down to 4x would be a considerable hit.

You're going to have to spring for better cooling, or a different mobo if you don't want to sacrifice performance, unfortunately. Those cards will cook each other like that.
