The upper is limited on afterburner too (they're in sync) but even with limitation, it creeps up...

I have a kraken x52 for the cpu so the front fan area is taken. There is one 120 exhaust and I have one 140 fan coming in that will go on top and pull in air which will aim at top of gpu 1. They're both going to be corsair ml.

This must be a common problem amongst sli setup I would think. Only thing I can think of is water cooled GPUs.

Thoughts on helping w cooling?

I had a setup like that before I picked up my 1080ti aios and I just used a lot of fans. Here's a pic for ideas. Odd fans were the one on the outside of the gpus to pull air out, and I found some little ones that tucked into the front of the gpus themselves. I was able to crank the volts so high on modded bioses that the things would artifact, and they still ran in the upper 70s so long as I kept the door to my room open and had a fan blowing in. Of course I turned the volts back a bit, and the fans were loud (bunch were hooked up to my case's fan controller switch so I could quickly manually control them). But some fans should help.
