Also, take a look at what your EVGA reads the system temp as. Mine was at 255F. There are numerous threads on this issue on the EVGA site.
First thing to do is check your bios temp and see if it is within your expectations given your ambient temps. Feel the air that is coming off of your cooler and see if it is even the slightest bit warm. With my crazt temp readings the air coming off of all of my sinks was much cooler than my ambient air in the room.
So your heatsinks are colder than room temp, eh?
To end it all,
THIS IS THE SPARTAN METHOD!!!!
