good enough for aircool, for the lower temps you really need a watercooled rig. Now you could lower it a bit more with a zalman hsf, and some arctic silver 5.

well that's good, but what's your ambient temperature? cause normally i would expect watercooled to have a lower cpu temp.

nah man, u don't have to worry about the temp, it looks fine. I have a very hot cpu, and it runs at 44 idle and 49 load with a zalman cnps9500. NOw you should bump your setting up to at least medium, because you will see the different in demp underload

well cause they are 2 cards, so basically your are running quad. however, no official support is out for sli 7950's so you won't see that much of a performance increase in games.
