TBH I think it's probably my GPU's that are the problem as I have two XFX Alphadog 8800GT's but they are the crap version where the fan is hardwired to be 100% and run at 55-60C idle and 75-80 at load! I have raised this issue with XFX and they categorically state that my particular version of the card is SUPPOSED to run that hot. Personally I think they're full of crap and just don't want to replace my cards. In the end I added two 82mm fans to the board to help with air flow (which while not doing much to the temps the amount of hot air they kick out of my case must mean something...

Opps, never even noticed you are running sli

I had a heat issue too with my 9800 gt's (with AC twin turbos) ,just pumping the case full of hot air.

Solved it by get a single gtx 260 that blows out the back

Only slightly less powerful the sli'd 9800gt's but aheck of alot cooler.

The gtx 460 1gb is looking pretty sweet.

I always like to say if it ain't broke then don't fix it. However if it's to the point of walking on egg shells just to play games then a little mod may be in order. I personally use to love XFX because they had the double life time warranty but honestly that means squat when they don't want to step up to the plate when a card or set of cards is malfunctioning. Now don't get me wrong here as I'm not bagging on XFX. I have not had any issues w/my XFX 8600 GTS 512MB cards but none the less they are not using reference cards and the Fans are hard wired i.e. only 2 wires to the fans meaning only one posative and only one negative wires w/o any spd sensor wires. So even if you tied to flash the video bios you won't be able to adjust the fan spd's w/out changing the voltage to the fans. I quit buying XFX for this reason alone.

I always had problems w/my BFG 9800 GT OC 512MB cards in SLI. My system would not lock up but would start artifacting on me. Since using the 8800 GTX cards this Phenomenon has not happened. IMO it must must be the G92 chips along w/the cards dumping all the heat right over the NB/SB chips.

Thanks

Reason i asked was coz sum1 is wanting 2 swap a GTX260 for my 9600GT's but
my cards @ the moment pull out 10k GPU score, so looks like there will be no real improvement

30k cpu score... you got PPU enabled?

Ya physics was enabled.
does it make difference?
thought I had it it off,guess not.
30k cpu score, is that bad,first time trying vantage(trial version 1 test only).
The gtx 260 is slightly less powerful than sli 9800gt's,a gtx 275 is about par,but try to find one.
I only switched to the gtx 260 for heat reasons.

Yeah it boosts your CPU score
My CPU with PPU enabled 24k , disabled 5.5k

Futermark does not accept scores with PPU enabled on the official rankings
