Adding a second video card into the mix does little to adding extra heat to the system.

We can see we're still sitting around that high 70c area for our hottest card in the setup. Considering the clock speeds, the fact we're dealing with a CrossFire setup and the fact we're pumping all that extra voltage through the setup, the number is fine.
