Crossfire temps

Hey guys,

I just set up my X-fire 4890s, but I'm getting some high differences in temp from them.

The top one is 48 celsius @stock @100% fans

The bottom is 39/40 celsius @stock @100% fans

I understand that there is restricted air flow between them - there is only one PCI slot between my two PCIe 16x slots, so there is basically no space for air intake on the top card.

Am I being paranoid about 8/9 degrees? It makes a big difference when OC'ing, which is frustrating, but with these card it doesn't pose to big a deal.

{I will add some photos of the set up soon}

The top one will always be a little hotter matey as in 'normal' use thats the card that will be getting used, so dwai at all dude, it could even be down to the thermal paste aswell.
If you recommend a product LINK THE REVIEW

Get along or run along. Your choice
