Also, custom designs like this like good side airflow. You can have good overall airflow all day long but a couple side fans blowing directly on the VGA will reduce temps 5-15 degrees C. You may already have some in place, if so, good.

okies, some good advice there, thanks for taking the time out

** UPDATE **

Thanks Dmac et al, your advice worked a treat, temps now peaking at 64c on same stress test, wouldnt have been confident to have tried that on my own initiative, so many thanks for taking the time to reply, just wanted to let you know it worked, everything OK

Cheers
