Something has to be wrong. 1 gpu is idling at 75.5 and the other at 55C according to gpu-z. Also why does it show gpu #3? But there is definately a different between the temps of the 2 cards when you touch the back. Going to pull them and recheck that the waterblocks are making good contact and adjust the fans so that both cards are getting air blown over them to cool the ram and mosfets.

Ok, not exactly sure WHAT i did, but now i'm idling at 37 and 42. I remounted the gpu block on the 2nd card and slightly adjusted the block on the other card. Only thing i can think of is that i might have over tightened the blocks and bowed the cards so that the gpu wasnt making good contact.

Oddly enough, the gpus are running cooler than my processor
at stock 2.4ghz i'm running 39/36/35/36 with 80F ambient.
Nothing to see here.
