Yes, they're practically humping each other, although placing some clothespins between the cards to space them out reduced heat by about 4C on the hottest card, not to mention the air circulation in my basement is terrible.  I figured that running them 24/7 was the best way to deal with hot cards.

As far as the boasting, Tiger Direct can suck it since they're employees tend to know nothing about anything (I basically had to explain their own warranty policy to them).  And truly, the post was meant to be informative under the guise of being boastful.  I figured this would be something miners may want to consider.

And I thought I was creative using clothespins for spacing.  Nice!

what's so cool about lying that you didn't overclock the gpu's? I am sure you broke a law or too and that's definitely a fraud, hopefully you'll get what you deserve

...Like an accurate receipt of my original purchase so I don't have to walk the employees through the warranty process?

Can someone elaborate on the card humping clothes pin trick?

any specific technique to this?

I have 3 7950's in a asrock 970 extreme4  .... middle card runs around 99c and the GPU performance jumps all over the place, I tied the cables to pull them slightly apart, but I might need to try this clothespin trick.

Would LOVE to see a pic

feel free to leave a tip in my daughter's college fund if you found my posts helpful 1HiCE3vX7yr7Yqy4yHf36x4w1cmSEsrTbM

(or if you just want some good karma!)
