Right after i put in both my 550 gtx's into sli they went from each running at around 35-50 c to running at 50-70c under load. Yesterday so much heat was being emitted from the top card that i turned it off.. Diablo 3 is this graphically intense or what?
are these safe temperatures to be running at? I haven't seen above 70 yet but i don't even feel like im taxing the setup very hard.
they are idling at 33 and 27c which seem fine to me, i jsut dont understand why the air being blown out is SO hot when having 2 cards should put less stress i thought?
Thanks! heres the rig currently today:

70°C is not a high temp for a card that has around 100°C as max operating temp. It is normal because of airflow restriction to have higher temps (upper card usually hotter) with multi card setups than with a single.
