Try taking the side panel off and see if that helps drop the temps,try idle and loaded.

Do you have any fans in the front of the case?
The specs say it has mounts for 2 92mm fans.

Can this PSU handle 2 GTX series cards adequately or should I go higher?

Fair enough. I was thinking the middle one.

Up to a pair of 470's on the 750tx I would say.2 480's will need a 850w.

I pull it down go back to SC2 but then it happens again. While this happens it really messes up my game as somehow that bottom right hand corner which is flickering becomes mouse insensitive meaning that I can access the SC2 minimap or any of the options in the bottom right hand corner. I don't know if this describes my problem clearly enough but I don't know how else to describe it. Sorry for the long post... I also checked my GPU's temperature while playing SC2 and it was around 60-65...
What's wrong ?
What's wrong is that Microsoft Windows is crap. It's a Windows issue, not a graphics card issue. Unfortunately, there isn't too much you can do about it. I've had similar problems occur intermittently with a number of different games and apps.

If you're running Windows XP, then you can try a cold boot and see if that clears it up, and you might want to disable your screensaver as well; otherwise you're probably SOL. If you're running Vista, then try upgrading to Windows 7; 'cause Vista is a big pile of moose droppings. If you're running Windows 7, try turning off Aero (a good idea if you're running GPU-intensive games like SC2 anyway).

You might also try closing other software that you might have running, including unnecessary background stuff in your system tray. Some of those weird system utilities and monitoring programs can sometimes cause weird problems with games; as can a lot of other stuff like IM clients and video-capture utilities.

Thx. I should have looked more carefully since I will go modular, and this one isn't. Will study this a bit more carefully.

MS is crap your right, but if everyone else is able to do the same thing and it works i doubt it is the problem. and StarCraft 2 requires a lot less of a system than he has.. but if your running monitor programs i would suggest just running 1, and not multiple's. also try Game booster. i use it for all my games and it helps a lot. it will shut down or temp stop programs in the background not needed to play the game, and will bring them back when your done. you can even use it with online games as it will not kill your connection. the free version is decent enough.

better late than never!

I originally got this board with a x2 6400+ before I even knew what SLI was. so I got a 125w processor for my 95w board. always hated the speed, but ran fine, couldn't increase a MHz on the bus though. got 2.2v ram to go in the 1.95v max slots, ran fine at reduced voltages.

recently had my gaming laptop die because of power spikes I'm pretty sure(live next to a steel mill, no surge protector)

so I decided I needed to upgrade, found there was a bios update that allowed AM3 chips, I originally knew it was upgraded once to support am2+ but didnt like the look of the original phenoms

so ya took out my 9800gtxs(one died gave other to bother. put in. pair of GTX460s got a 945 95w open box. now it screams. plays BC2 and F1 2010 like a champ.

the install of the CPU was near disaster, the crap thermal paste on the 6400+ was like concret, I couldn't boot into OS after bios update(or at I think) I couldn't think of any way to get it out. so... I just started pull harder and harder and it just ripped, I was terrified the pins would gave broke off in the board. but luckily only the 6400+ was destroyed

anyways I put the 6400+ heat sync on the 945 and slowly have been trying to push it as far as I can. the bios CPU voltage setting doesn't seem to do anything though, I was hoping to get more out of it, the board makes me hit f1 on boot when the bus is over 210 but I don't care, it seems to run fine and I have a fan blowing on the north bridge.
