Thought I would post my new setup here, I'm just waiting on my watercooling parts. Sorry for the crappy pics, my cam is broken so I'm stuck with the cell phone camera for now.

Wow I really love my new 650D case. It is my first build and it looks simply amazing. Someone I play TF2 with suggested it and I have not regretted it in the slightest

Under extreme gaming, I get to 85ºC on the GPU and around 50ish (55+) on the CPU. Is this acceptable? I don't really care about subzero temperatures, I just want to make sure that my temps will not bring me any problem in the long run (or, more importantly, that I don't have any defective component).

Edit: Not only this is a great club, I really am positively impressed with how helpful people are! Many thanks guys...

your setup on air, thats acceptable for an 800D
there is room for improvement

I am quite happy with the thermals of my setup, to be honest... Under heavy gaming, CPU never goes above 55-60C and GPU is always around 85C. All of that, at very acceptable noise levels... So I am happy.

As you mention, there is room for improvement... This is where I would like some solid suggestions from all the lucky owners of 800D systems (with air setups). More specifically, fans, fans placement, air flow, etc, etc...

ps: Just received two Akasa Apache Black to substitute the stock fans on my corsair H70. Will see if that makes any difference...

How do you have your fans set up? I use my H50 as intake along with 2 intake fans in the bottom. I also have 3 Noctua's on top as the exhaust. The max I have seen on my 5970 is 75 after about 4 hours playing, usually it is the upper 60's.
