Default Re: SLI issue

well the top card is also hotter though because heat rises. so heat rises from the bottom card to heat up the top card. so i guess it has to happen unless u fip it on the side and the heat flows up out of the case instead of on the other card.

i know i know double posting but i dont care, if i put a fan in the back of my case should it be blowing in or out? if it goes in it'll blow right over my cpu and video cards if it blows out it would be taking heat from video cards but psu takes heat from cpu so i dunno which one to do
