    After reading all this, i am brainwashed, i think i am going to pre-order the msi gaming gtx 970 in sli :3eyes:

    But i am still curious how hot those things are going to get in a case, so guys please post pictures if anyone here is going SLI with those MSI cards with the blue light, i need those temp readings, under load.

    The ambient temp in the area of my card within my case, according to my bitfenix is 52c and that's with the card idled just after an intense 3D Mark session on firestrike.

    My case is far from tidy inside, I'm too lazy to manage my wiring/cabling for efficient airflow.

    My core temp was sitting at 65/67.

    Don't know if that helps but my 3D Mark score on default Firestrike jumped up a third to the 9000's from the 6000's on my 670. No OC tweaking etc.

    Short pcb is the reference pcb. The longer is custom pcb.
    Check the location of the power connectors on EVGA 970's.
    The location of the power connector is a good indicator that the reference is a short pcb.

    Care to post your msia settings? I'm assuming you're maxing out the volts? What load temps are you getting?

    87mv is max atm until custom bios comes out which will unlock the Power target and maybe have an LLC fix. I see these cards going to around 1.3v but no more than that. Depends on the Phases on the PCB.

    My ASIC % is 75.3

    In afterburner I'm using 110% power, +87mv, +240 core, +500 mem, 100% fan speed. Under load it hovers around 70c.

    Good guess, someone found the voltage tables in the BIOS for these and the highest was 1.312v.

    I can see people achieving 1800mhz on these under water at max volts when unlocked BIOS arrive.

    ASIC doesn't really tell much. My current GTX 780 has 67,7% ASIC. Earlier GTX 780 has about 10% higher yet my current one OC's ****loads better (1,2 GHz with stock voltage when the other need 1,2V).

    noob question about OC with my Gigabyte 970.

    This is the maximum if i don't touch volts.(temperature at 66 degree)
    I am using 550w power, i am not sure is it enough or not...
    Will increase voltage increase the power consumption as well?

    and stupid question.. will it burn my card? lol

    Looks like im joining the club, as my board also does SLi, so gona grab 2x of the MSi gamings when they back in stock (expected Tuesday). :D

    Just a quick question (probably daft, but hey ho, long time AMD user :p), do the SLi bridges come with the cards ?
