    Its not really an issue, its just that's what happens when you put two of the biggest, hottest, and most hungry GPUs on the same card with the same heat sink as used with one.

    Did you take any Pics of the build before you delivered it?

    I'll bet it's cool looking. Share Please,........

    Actually I didn't take any pictures. It wasn't a show piece. I spent some time routing all the cables right the first time for propper air flow. He only has one 128Gb SSD and a 1.5TB HDD. Nothing special except the GPU's. The build itself is worth more than his car but, I couldn't talk him out of it.
