Default 8800gt sli running too hot?..

I get my first slot 8800gt @ like 65c and bottom is just below 60c i believe at it's hottest..
Crysis blows when the heat hits them.. It really effects the gameplay. I'm not overclocking..

Suggestions for air cooling? I am looking for a significant improvement, perhaps to keep them below 60c would be great, I think above 60c kills my gameplay for crysis..

Those are normal temps, one card will run hotter than the other.

Can always use RivaTuner to up the fan-speed on them.

ohh yea, I did take out rivatuner because I didn't want to oc my gpus anymore, but I forgot that the fan speed runs like crap without a program to set 100% fan speed all the time, thanks for reminding me carnage.

thanks mah peeps, I appriciate the responses.

I'm sure the temps are normal, but I want to lower them.. Any aftermarket cooling suggestions?
