Surprisingly ... there is still really good air flow ... 

 

Digital therm shows air coming out the reference exhaust at over 100F ... which is pretty warm ... 

 

So far so good ... no issues with the VRAM I don't think.  Still haven't found max stable overclock ... 

 

Super well put together kit; I love the way the pump and fan are all powered by the PCI-E slot and no PSU connectors are needed at all.

 

It's still mind boggling that I couldn't get either card over 50C ... and I'm running a 1440p monitor as well ... 

 

And they are super quiet ... pumps are not audible at all from my desk.

Glad it works well. I doubted EVGA would put out bad kit; but things are sometimes overlooked and those heatsinks looked like they were hidden behind the pump pretty well.

Ugh, hope I'm not throwing good money after bad - upgrading my Sapphire Tri-X 290 OC to an Asus 980 Ti Strix...

I guess if nothing else I get a free copy of Metal Gear Solid 5 Phantom Pain smily_headphones1.gif
