im not sure, but i think you need to have a water cooled pc for it to work

or you can get http://www.thermaltake.com/product/Liguid/All-In-One/cl-w0086/cl-w0086.asp

its compatible with Sli and Crossfire

The first one you need a water cooling setup to work, and the second one takes up 2 additional PCI slots.

Get 2 of these babies. One of the VGA cooler "titans".
PM me if you want some reviews.

The second one may take 2 pci slots but you only need one of them for Sli

Temperatures will not decrease whatsoever if you use that for 2 cards. The tidewater was designed for one card, not 2, but Thermaltake decided to be stoopid.

to tell you the truth I would just use a fan you can make a hole in your case using nibblers just big enough for the fan to blow air through and attack it to the comp but i guess your safer using the 50 dollar aproach.

use a drill to make a hole just large enough to fit your nibbler in there and just make the hole to allow the air from the fan to enter and circulate around the system to cool it. kinda bootleg but ive seen it working plenty of times as the vents on the bottom keep the air circulating to and from the the case.
Just dont drill while the case is attacked or nibble for that matter. this is a nibbler if your still asking you can get one at any hardware store for like $5-$10.

I'm sorry, but I have to ask.
How many times have you people had fluid leaks with liquid-cooled computers?
