Are there any good programs that test your CPU and GPU to its limits, so I can see what temperatures they get up to?
cpu = linx, prime95, inter burn test
gpu = furkmark, msi kombustor

I see you have a ud3r mobo. Try putting the 260 on the last pcie slot. I know its 8x but I don't gonna affect too much performance

worried about that? hell my gtx280ocx used to run @94c all the time, new case now with better airflow and fan adjustments and it runs cooler of course (60'sc) but it's been like that for almost 3 years now and runs just fine.

That's what I tried to do at first. But the USB and LED/buttons cables near the bottom block the way.

OK so I did a benchmark test on the GPU and in 4 minutes, it got to 67*C. Makes a big difference with and without airflow. I got a new Cool Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler today and I did a benchmark test on that too. I don't know whether to look at the CPU temps or the CPU Core temps but the CPU got up to 54*C and the Cores got up to an average of 66*C.

I have an Intel i7 950. Do I enable PhysX on the CPU or the 580?
You go to Nvidia Control Panel and enable Physx there. (see pic below)

Yes.
Use MSI's AfterBurner. In that free utility, Go to Settings-->Monitoring. Enable 'log history to file'. When the PC crashes, it would have saved the log file. Restart your PC and you will find the temp just before crashing.

Are you using HAF X's air duct?
Can you take a pic of the inside of your case?
post #27 of 55
Same for my GPUs, they are a few milimiters apart, basically blocking off the upper cards' fan. Also getting about 88c during full load, it's creepy.
^ I also had some weird PC crashes, probably because of overheat - even tho they have never ever went above 88c. Think I'll have to do something - might just lurk this thread. ^^

Yeah but maybe water cooling is out of the OP's budget right now

No I'm not using the air duct. Will it make much difference?

The pictures are not that clear showing the 2 cards installed and the small gap.
Anyway, use that Air Duct (with a good 120mm fan). It can push air into the gap between the 2 cards and will help the top card.

Secondly, there is something else you can do: Reverse the 2 cards' position.

Currently, the GTX580 sits on top while the GTX260 sits below. The GTX580 gets hot as its air intake is greatly blocked by the GTX260. So, exchange their slot position.

With this new arrangement, the GTX580 will have free air intake. Although the GTX260 now will get hot, but it is used as a Physx card and it will not under a lot of load even when doing Physx. So, it will not get as hot as the GTX580 and it will be helped by the Air Duct.

Remember 2 things:
a. the monitor should still be connected to the GTX580, making it the main graphics card
b. go to BIOS and specify that the PCIEx16 slot (which now occupied by the GTX580) is the first display. See the 2 pictures below.
