It's not because you have read this somewhere that it's true.
You're just an internet parrot copy and pasting what you have read somewhere else.
I now have a 6990+6970 tri-Fire set-up and it's rock-stable. Since I always watercool my GPUs, those multi-GPUs cards are not hot and are not noisy at all.
Just played Metro max settings MAX AA/AF. Smooth like butter.
Who would be stupid enough to buy a 6990 or 590 and run with stock cooler? If you want to OC those monsters, you need waterblocks. Or else you're pretty stupid IMHO.
BTW, even with stock cooler (waiting for my waterblock), the 6990 is not noisy and temp is good. I know, I have one. With a good case and good cooling, it's not making more noise then my friend's 580 SLI set-up.
I also have a 5970+5870 Tri-Fire set-up at 1000/1200 24/7, and it's rock-stable since 1 year and 4 months. Not a single crash/bug/freeze/BSOD in the last 12 months. Not hot, not noisy, not problematic. And it's a TRI-Fire set-up.
Remember. On the internet, for 10 REALLY VOCAL whiners, you have 1000 satisifed customers that don't post.
And you also have alot of internet parrot copy and pasting everything they read about a product, without even trying it. or because they had problem with a card, everyone on the planet are automatically having the same problems, and all cards from this manufacturers are automatically bad products.
