7x gpu block, 1 card running really hot.

I have the new version of the 7x gpu block. When I start Folding at home, 1 card goes to 93C within 30 secs. It is not the first or last card it is one of the two in the middle. The cards are in slots 2,3,4,5. I have tried many configurations and I cannot figure out why one of the two are running really hot. very strange. I was told by EKWB support to do 2,3,4,5 because the 5 slot is a serial and i do not have a serial blank. The first card is the 1080 in slot 2, it runs around 60 or so, slot 3 or 4 is the one running at 93C, 3 of the 4 cards run fine.

How does the hotter card's idle temp compare to the other cards? If the block is mounted poorly, I would think it would idle higher than the other cards too.

Might be worth trying to remount that block and then swap the order of the cards when reassembling to see if any card in that slot gets hotter.
