Yeah use the User Fan Control. I have two of those cards, and I set the fan curve to start at about 60% usage... Top card idles about 36 degrees. I have no gap between.

cheers guys, kinda new at crossfire, this may sound stupid but cant find proper answer any where, do i need to use 2 x bridges or just the 1?? been reading on net, some say 1 and some say 2, but all depends on what you using it for....Some people say that two bridges can hurt performance, but then other sites say that two bridges help balance out the information flow. So should I use one or two?

dont wana reck any of my rig and defo not the cards lol
