Thanks Tom for another great review. Seems like Asus is really big on these bulky coolers. I would still very much prefer MSI and Gigabyte's coolers for performance/silence and that they save a bit more space for parts and upgrades.

i have 2 cards with the dcu ii coolers and unless you either brace them so they dont sag or have a silverstone (inverted mobo)case,,, your temps will not be anything special....

however....

if properly installed....(asus' fault not toms) you'll have a hard time hitting 60c even cf-sli'd and oc'd....

idle temps are a pedestrian 30-33c but thats idle

just my exp...
