I'm thinking you should be getting better temps. I know I had to play with the fan configuration to get the lowest temps. Maybe have both gpu fans in series in front of the rad as intake like mine. If both of CPU and gpu fans are sent to outtake then there may be a dead spot as a result. I ran into that problem when I mounted both gpu coolers as outtake on top of the case. Was to close to the CPU cooler and was creating a dead spot. Difference between that configuration and the current front intake was about +10c.
You might try checking the seat as well. It took me a few attempts to get the optimum seat on the cards. I had one card running +6 over the other and was due to air pocket.

60c under load.

my fans are set to exhaust. i had my cpu and gpu radiators side by side up top, but my temps were in the 75c range. then i switched the gpu radiator to the back end of the case (see pics from previous post) and my temps are in the 60's.

my nzxt fans have 3 different speed settings and the highest is stupid loud, so i have them on the middle settings. what TIM compound/brand are you using? i'm using artic silver.

Oh ok thats pretty good then. I use and swear by IC Diamond 7.

Figured I'd chime in here on the TIM. since I have only used on the CPU, it may be different, but the Antec Formula 6 Nano Diamond gave me about 10C cooler temps than Artic Silver, and it cost me about the same thing. That, and there is more per tube, and it's sold locally at the local Staples, where the Artic Silver is not. Fair warning though, IT'S THICK! Don't even bother spreading it with the spreader it comes with, it'll bend it. As a matter of fact, the credit card trick does not even work. I was half tempted to use a butter knife.

Thanks for the heads up Reaver83, i'll give that a try!

Cravinmild - you're a sick man! LOL!

At my staples, the Antec Formula 6  was $9.99USD, and the Antec Formula 7(supposedly better) was $14.99USD. Didn't have the money to invest in the Formula 7, but I may try it once I get my college grant money. Like I said, this stuff is very thick, and if you try to spread it with a credit card, it will pop up and stick to the plastic b4 sticking to the metal compound of a processor. It's also almost impossible to clean off your hands completely.

Well, I know Cravinmild had proposed it to the mods at one point. I will check with him and see if we can get it going somehow.
