Default For people with 2x 7950 GX2

Well I got a pair of eVGA 7950 GX2 cards, and when I go to Nvidia control panel and check temperatures, it only shows ONE temperature being 76 Degrees, now my question is... Is this temperature BOTH cards combined? I can't click to see the other card or anything, and it says "Quad Sli" is enabled... But I'm not even sure im running sli...

Anyone help me out?

How do I get a 3Dmark06? And How do i check my temperature? I check it on Nvidia control pannel but only one temperature comes up, and its always 75-85, so I'm guessing its both cards combined?

And how come Final Fantasy XI doesn't work with AA x 32 :/? is there any other games that have conflict with this?

75-85 Celcius, cause if that is true I would think it would be near melting.

It says at 123 C it will slow down (red) and right now its at 87, doesn't say C or F after it, but I dont know... my only guess is both cards temperatures are combined?

For example 80 C = 40 C each?

Edit: Also, my computer temperature is: CPU 32c HDD 34c SYS 33c


Which makes the 80 C temperature be weird on my 7950 GX2 cards...

I really really really doubt that, I expect its just reporting the temperature of a single chip in C.

80C is warm but its not panic stations, my GPU wont even throttle back until it reaches 120C.
