So I have two ATI HD6970s in crossfire, both are overclocked by me.

My idle temperatures include: GPU 1 --> 30-35 degrees and GPU 2 --> 40-40 degrees

While playing Battlefield 3 my temperatures get up to: GPU 1 --> 65-70 degrees and GPU 2 --> 86 degrees (max temperature I found)

I would like to know if these temperatures are fine or not and how long my cards should last with these temperatures.

Thanks in advance :D

Yes it's very normal, but do you have a reference designed cards?

Yes, it is fine. The one with the higher temperature is probably the 1 on top. But 86degrees is within its normal operating temperature. It should not cause any undue shortening of the lifespan.

So it's pretty normal like I mentioned, When in CF/SLI mode the cards runs a little hotter than in single mode. The card that runs hotter is the first card, the one you have the monitor connected to.
