By the way, in CrossFire, you actually only need one of those bridges ^^^ and great case. Same one as me.

I have a new server up and running. That makes #3. I seem to collect them these days. O.o

my card run cooler with 2 bridges for some reason can't tell you why but I went through a big deal when i 1st got them with overheating. i put the 2nd bridge on and bang they idle at 51c and never go over 78c. I guess the extra throughput helps in some way

Actually, the extra bridge introduces errors in the CF stream, so the reason you're seeing lower temps is because the cards aren't working as hard due to the errors. That's the "dumbed down" version of my research, but it's pretty much what folks are finding online. I did the same thing with my 5870's, but my problem is that I could never get the system to be stable with two bridges, so I went back to one, and spaced the cards better, and the problem went away with the errors.

FYI, these GPUs (Radeon HD series) can do 85C and not be an issue. Folks get so nuts about temps on these things, but they're engineered to run that hot, so don't worry too much about it.

My rig has been updated recently I replaced my 8600gts 256mb ddr3 which died with a XFX Radeon 6670 1gb DDR5. My psu has been replaced too I had a 400 watt Ultra psu I don't know the model of since it came with my case and I now have an Ultra X4 600 watt modular PSU. I think when the PSU died it took my graphics card with it since I know how much PSUs Like to throw a few components under the bus with them when they go
