With fans ~45% I never see temps above 80C under gaming load. Idle temps between the two GPUs yield ~10-15C difference, but they close to 5C-10C difference when under load. I had to actually add a 120mm fan in my case pointing right at them for extra air flow... as seen below (the white block. I took that pic before adding the fan.)




I can't quite fit the card on the bottom 8x slot... so both 16x slots is the only thing you can work with on this mobo. I still love the mobo, regardless!
OK i see will i will have to think about getting a fan blowing towards them i do have a 200m side fan on my NZXT case which is quite good.....but you have the 6870 which from what i read runs cooler than the 5870's

the one i have is also none reference design fom xfx...but i will make some alterations to my case so i can point a 120m fan on them for added air flow

@ nerdybeat

nice setup. Looks neat. I've recently "cleaned" the inside of my PC the best way I can clean it. Here's a pic of my current set up

[Inside without side panel+fans/leds]


or looks here:

[And here is the old JUNKY looking inside with wires everywhere]

Also is that a Antec KUHLER H2O 620 CPU Cooler in your PC? If so how good is that cooler? I've read that it doesn't need maintenance and that it's pretty good at keeping the CPU cool. Right now I'm running my i7-960 OC'd at 4.00Ghz. My temps are fairly good. I'm using the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus+ with 2 180mm fans as you can see in the picture above. I was wondering if the antec KULER H20 620 would be better.

Idle temps range = 28C-34C
100% CPU Load = 49C-51C
100% CPU Load + A LOT OF Memory tests [burn in etc]= 65C-73C

When I play titles like BF:BC2 maxed out my CPU is only at about 45C-55C depending on whats happening within the game.

I like that cooler because it makes the inside looks a lot better and it's water cooler with no maintenance. So does anyone think I should get the Antec KUHLER? Does it really cool better and is it worth it?

Edit:
I see the word corsair on your CPU cooler. Well anyways I just want to know if it's worth getting or should I just stick with my current set-up for cooling. My computer has 10 fans inside and I can control all of them, but 2.

@Nocturnal:

I use the Corsair H70 (as shown in my sig) with a couple of GT AP-15 fans. I really like the results. It is a closed water loop, and requires no maintenance.

Your 212+ is a great air cooler. I can't exactly see all of the fans you said you have (10?). But if that is the case, I would stick with that CPU cooler - your temps seem totally fine. Maybe consider a closed loop CPU cooler in the future, there are new Corsair models coming out soon from what I have been reading. As for now, I would say stick with what you have.

Stupid me.... I'm doing so many things at once I didn't think to look at your sig lol [plus I'm new here]

Well I guess I'll wait for the new models to release and see what they are about.

Yes I have 10 fans total in my case to keep the temps very low [usually around 28C-30C]. 10 total. but I counted the huge dan o nthe PSU and the Graphics card fan. So other than those 2 I have a total of 8....altogether 10.

No problems! Welcome to OCN! Yea, take a look at the new models. To be honest, your temps are totally fine, and that's a wonderful air cooler for the price...

However.. you are on OCN.. and the upgrade itch will always be there

Good luck!!!!!
