i played with my fans and i thought i got it under control having 73C in Haeven and Valley but then i benched in Crysis 3 and got to 80C on my GB 780OC GB, 71C on intel Q9550 3.4ghz cpu and 45C on my SSD ... the SSD scared me most, even tough a friend of mine said as long as its under 50 its ok ...
one good thing tough, the hwinfo64 3 log files i made shows cpu cores at 85-95% on average, hitting 100% on occasion but i think that i am having actually a balanced system with close to zero cpu bottleneck, as my fps are comparable if not better then gb gtx780oc reviews in guru3d (fxaa) 44vs47 and techpowerup (4x msaa) 27vs30
i was using 180s tests on same level, same gameplay. even if its not 100% accurate i have a very low cpu bottleneck in crysis 3, BF3 is now next to be tested
i will change the side fan to move hot air out of case (i had it blow cold air onto pcb of my 780) and see if the maximum temperatures wont go down, right now i am installing BF3 to test it in multiplayer caspian
