Thanks so much guys. I just changed the thermal paste on my 480 today as well. Maybe overclocking the CPU will gain me even more FPS! Plus I've solved my problem with Afterburner.
Now the fan profile I've set works after closing it. The problem was that even though it was set on User Defined, the Auto setting was still active. So I took it off and saved the profile and now it works. With this profile I made my temps are 10 degrees cooler than before with more noise of course. But silence is overrated when you have earphones anyway tongue.gif
Glad I could help. Remember MSAA caps up a lot of Vram no matter what game it is.

Haha yeah. I also tweaked the shadows to be sharper and softer. I think at one point I was using FXAA as well. Now I leave the ingame AA off but leave FXAA on. The ENBs drop my fps, but still quite playable and smooth. I'm still working on it. I've learned some valuable info here for sure.
