Can you take a picture of your system from the main side with the side panel removed?
Have you checked to see if your GPU fan is even spinning?

You should not even be close to temps that cause the freq. to throttle.

Kepler begins to throttle at 70C, only by 13MHz IIRC but still. I'd imagine that's what he means by saying that's he's 10C above throttling, that he's sitting at 80C not 107C.

The only games I have right now that cause any kind of load on it are Crysis and Skyrim.

Skyrim is alright at mid 60's and Crysis will run all the way up to mid 70's and unless this thing is jet powered the fan definitely works.

Not sure about ambient temps but it's idling at 30c/30% fan speed,fan curve set to max at 60c.

Here you can see my build,I'm going to redo the cable management but I don't think it will help temps at all. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/yuU

I took that fan out of the bottom,it was doing absolutely nothing.

Not quite 80 but mid 70's under heavy load.

So is that member correct in saying you might be throttling by 13Mhz?

Yes 13mhz,sometimes it gets hot enough to happen again in the upper 70's.

I don't think you should spend a lot on cooling if the speed only reduced by 13mhz.

Yeah,that's why I was looking into the 680 heatsink.I thought that with some quality tim it would be worth a shot if it was possible.I'm only about 30 points from a score of 1300 in Heaven and I know the card will clock up to 1250mhz+ but it throttles and holds my score back.

It looks like the Arctic Cooling Accelero Mono Plus could be a good solution for me,I want to see this thing hit 1300 in Heaven benchmark biggrin.gif
