    Nah, the cards would overheat and cause the computer to shut down before the solder would melt. Whether they would be too hot depends on how much space is between them and how much airflow your case has.

    The coolers on these cards are massive, which will help. All sli will have some heat-ish issues. As long as your under the heat threshold youll be ok. I would not buy two of these for sli, i would get the msi lightning extreams with 3gb for sli and keep them stock. IMO you buy these cards to oc the snot out of them at which point heat may become an issue. Being they are non referance you cant even watercool them. Know what you want from them or it may cost more than it should to get what you want. These are the second most expensive cards on the market for single gpu cards.

    I should add to my post above that the price is for non modded cards for watercooling like zotacs' 580 or a couple others. For stock air cards they are the second most expensive.

    i would like to think out of the 10+ companys currently making water blocks that one will make the non-ref block for the matrix, theres enough of a following for overclocking (being thats the direction the matrix was created for). 1st one who dos will prolly be selling to sold out all threw next year i'd bet haha

    the fact that asus worked it to a more solid design, not just components wise but how power was reworked. i read on one of the matrix reviews about this and how normal ref 580s had trouble along the lines of holding certain loads due to power, thats the jist of what i got out of it, if im incorrect about this feel free to break it down for me an who ever else =P

    The cards do run HOT on SLI and it depends on your cooling aswell as stated above but i recommend getting good cooling first. They run like a charm.

    As long as you have a HAF932 or a Corsair 800D and obviously a motherboard that will support the spacing, there should be no problem running these in SLI.
