Proper Airflow and Case Selection
That's good to know. My current case would have the two 7990's stacked. So like you said with the fans blowing all the hot air directly on the bottom card, it probably won't have a chance...

I've thought of water cooling, but...not sure I want to go that route...

2 7990s, however, different story- it just doesn't work. The 7990 sends all its heat up to the exhaust fans, and with two cards the bottom one overheats pronto.
