I have 2 XFX Radeon HD 6970's in CrossFireX on a ASUS Sabertooth P67 Motherboard in a Antec Elevenhundred Case will 8 Fans (2 12CM Intake up front, 1 12CM intake on side, 1 12CM exhaust on side, 20CM exhaust on top and 2 12CM on my Radiator setup up as an exhaust Push/Pull.

My second GPU, the one on the bottom, is about 10 degrees hotter then the main GPU up top. My max temp on the bottom one after a 15min burn in is 94C and on the top 84. Is this normal?

I don't understand how I could do better cooler management. I have excellent cable management. The only thing I can think of is the side fans on the case window. Should those be intake or exhaust. Right now I have one as intake and one as exhaust.

I should note those temps were achieved using MSI Kombuster's GPU Burn IN.

I see you have a good cooling management but unfortunately your gpu's brand isn't good in aspect of cooling.

They're pretty much reference cards. Is AMD's design inadequate?

Be advised, the VF3000A needs 3 slots of space and it is NOT officially compatable with the 6970.
