Hi,

What is the best cooling for 2 6990s?

Is it liquid cooling? Problem may be that they are too close together however.

The case was an original alienware case a few years old, but has been since upgraded from a 4870x2 to the 6990, 980x, 12 gig ddr ram, asus p6t deluxe v2 board.

Seems that when I enable both cards, the system reboots itself, but runs fine with the one. The only thing I can think of is that it is getting too hot and needs to stop.

That is the only time its rebooted.

Running windows 7.

thanks

yes.it is liquid cooling.6990 is a powerhouse but it requires extreme cooling to run cool under load.and for crossfire,your heat gets doubled.i would suggest liquid cooling.
these things look pretty good to me-
