My temps on the 470 are back to normal and the 275 temps are well within good idle temp ranges. I think I am going to pick up a cheap used graphics card from a friend to replace the GTX 275 as my permanent second monitor GPU.
Your solution is also good.
So, your GTX470 is now in the middle (dark blue) slot and the GTX275 is in the top (dark blue) slot?
The Asus P6X58D Premium can do x16/x8/x8 and x16/x16/x1. I would suggest the GTX470 remains at the top (dark blue) slot to take full advantage of the x16 speed. In order to leave maximum breathing room for the GTX470, the 'cheap used graphics card from your friend' will sit in the bottom (white) slot utilizing x8 under the x16/x8/x8 arrangement. This, of course, will require that 'cheap used graphics card' to be single slot as the HAF932 has only 7 expansion slot openings.
