And they just keep getting bigger and less SLI friendly. Well it will stay water cooling for me then.

"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"
"I don't want to be much of a forum Nazi but this situation calls for a hail Bosco and blitzkrieg someone".

If that does not fix it I hop in a Timber Wolf and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

Wow that thing is massive.  It's not so much thick as it is wide, hanging off the card by a good inch or two...anyone with fans on the side of their case will have a hard time getting it to fit.

That thing is a monster of a cooler. It did outstanding with Idle temps and held its own against the Hybrid cooler. That is great for a active air cooler.

It's... huge...

But not SLI or CFX friendly at all.

They should make this kind of heatsinks for dual chip cards like HD7990 or GTX690. Many people use single card while using dual chip cards, so this kind of product would be of great use in those scenario.
