Good point,I was thinking the same thing.
What I did on the case was to mount two 20 CFM fans or so pulling air OUT the side.
Originally we had one fan [side panel] in the position lower/rear most,towards the back of the case.
That kept the 3870's below 50 C at all times.
The case breaths air through the lower front [HDD cooling fan] and a vent in the bottom.
BTW,this computer as been rocking for over three + years with an Antec 850 Quattro power supply and an APC surge protector.cool.gif

I had down clocking issues similar to that. Try unistalling and Running a sweeper. Then reinstall. That forced my clocks back down when idle.
