My 480 was a hot card 92 on auto fan . @ 70 % i hit 850 on it. stable.
on 580 now 950 core. mcw60 water block.

The case you got needs to go. you need air flow a good amount too.haf 932 ect..
Get the asus one diffidently if u r going to keep case. ..
also i dont know if your power (psu) can handle it (thinking overhead).
Owell depends on meny things no vote.

The Corair GS600 meets the minimum 600 watts. More importantly it Supplys 46 amps on the 12volt rail.

I'd strongly suggest looking at the MSI GTX 480 Lightning:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127532

Its got the TFIII cooler and is a beast of a card for $329. Maybe slightly higher cost than the others but its the one I'd have...

For the money id get a EVGA 570 SC and keep the heat out my case.

Get a Zotac GTX480 AMP..

It's a reference based card with a aftermarket cooler,so if you ever decide to go on water cooling there would be no problems..


CHEERS..

I could just mount a 120mm on the side blowing air in and two 80 pumping out or vice versa.

you generally want to try and help out the convention flow of the air inside your case and also have it flowing the one way...

so i would have both the side and front fan blowing air in...

and have the back and PSU fan blowing out

personally in my case...

i have the front, bottom and side fans blowing in

and the back and top fans blowing out..

Why not get a new case altogether? There are some decent sub-$100 options out there.

Even with an EE version your temps are going to be ridiculous.

Asus is great at Motherboards but they suck at everything else.

Zotac's a great company with a great product. Sounds like Win - Win to me.
