Checking out the heat numbers we can see that our hottest card manages to run a fair bit warmer coming in line with the three-way CrossFireX setup. This is of course no doubt due to the fact we're dealing with extra voltage on the core of the cards.

What does look a bit more attractive is the idle number which sits significantly lower than the three-way setup. That's of course due to the fact that we still have a nice gap between the video cards thanks to the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard layout.
