New workstation with a ton of tech for color grading....but with 3 GTX 680 4GB card's I can't help but throw in a gaming boot drive. Finishing up the build and testing today ( 100F outside, 82 inside). While playing GW2 at 2560x1600 with two of the GTXs in SLI and one for PhysX...my primary GTX 680 would peak at about 85C. That's the highest it would go and only for a few moments...usually hovering around 75-82. Is 85 an acceptable temp or should I be worried. In several SLI 680 reviews I have seen their temps reaching 83. I'm running a strong custom fan profile as well. With a dual Xeon, 11 hard drives, a Raid card, a Decklink card, and 3 GTX 680s there is only so much you can do to cool it off. Nvidia states the thermal limit is 98. Would love to hear some thoughts if that 85C peak is too high or safe.?
