When i say high end air i mean D14, Phlanteks thumb.gif

Hey man, thanks for your advice. At what point would you start to get uncomfortable with your vrm temps?i know 100c is the "Max" but what is the general consensus? I would like to have some idea of how high I can push them. And sorry if I kinda derailed this thread. :/

With my Maximus i dont get uncomfortable. With my old Pro3 they would hit almost 90C while gaming and while it did make me a tad nervous nothing bad ever happened. Aslong as you have good airflow blowing across the board you'll be fine.

This, just get a high end board. Minimum I'd reccomend would be a 990fx fatality, 990fx-ud3a...That's more important than vrm temps, vrm quality. BUT vrm temps are important and if you are to max an 8 core cpu you'll need to get WC to cool those down properly, otherwise you'll be throttled by the vrm themselves.

As for the OP, if anything I'd add a 3rd 580 or grab dual 3gb 580s for 24/7 use. I like those tongue.gif

Keep the 580s...

I have the same setup, If you look a 2x 580's are about the same as a GTX Titan in benchmarks and a lot of games. So personally, I'm just going to keep mt 580's until something can beat them on a single core solution.
