GTX 570 SLI heat help

Hey guys, I've SLI'd my MSI Twin Frozr iii 570 with a Palit sonic platinum 570 and I'm getting above 85-90 Celsius under full load and 50 on idle, my case is a fractal design R4. I was wondering if its the case or if its just how hot these cards get, both running at stock with one PCI slot space between them, its just a nightmare being sat next to two jet engines. Here's a shot of the beast.

Is there a fan mount on the side panel? if so then try putting an intake to blow between the cards

Yeah I've put one in but to no temperature change, I'm thinking my airflow isn't optimal

Have you tried it both ways? What fans do you have around the case?

Just did that now, a 2-3 degree difference in battlefield 3, these cards are pumping out a ton of heat though so their coolers are definitely working different case perhaps?

What fans do you have around the case and where? When i replaced the stock coolermaster fans in my case with corsair af120's and a bit fenix spectre pro my temps dropped a few degrees.

yeah sorry, they're the fractal design fans that came with the case, 2x 140mm and 2x 120mm i bought the 2 extra 120 fractal fans, they seem to push alot of air on there own but not when in use on the case :S

I've no experience in fractal fans but fans that come with the case normally aren't the best. See what someone else ,who's had experience with the fans, says about it but i would replace them with corsair fans or something similar

well yeah its a silent design case ,changing fan brand/tipe wont help really.but test the temps with the side panel off .if the temps dont drop by a lot(not so much lol) than your problem isn`t the case and changing fans wont help at all.anyway heat and noise is something that you have to live with when SLI/CF`ing. thats why i say pass on that.anyway test with side panel off
