Are you using the Cooler that came in the same box as your CPU?
Doesn't seem to have any fan hole on the side, it has one on the back under the psu but either way no it doesn't have a fan on there.

I didn't put the system together I would think that ccl (where I bought it) would have used the fan that came with the CPU but can't be sure. They are abit useless when I contact them. They just try to get me to upgrade everything and I'm not sure I need to

not using any profile, wouldn't know how! just stuck the card in and installed latest driver. The card has a cyclone IGD5 if that helps

Ive just downloaded speed fan and the cards temp was saying 50-55 degs c which I thought seemed actually low rather than high. The noise is pretty bad all the time unless I take the side off.
Did the CPU cooler come with the chip and does it look like this:
Go to 1:30

Also go to here and download MSI Afterburner. That will allow you to make a custom fan profile where you can adjust what speed you want your GPU fan to run at each temperature.

VW TDI 02 yeah it looks the same fan on the cpu. You do mean the small one on top of the cpu don't you? I dont have the bigger fan to the left under the power supply.

On MSI Afterburner what would be an ok temp to let the card get to without damaging it?

Then yes you have the stock cooler for your CPU. Those get up to over 3000RPM I believe which means they get loud. If you want something quieter you should go with an aftermarket cooler such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212+. You honestly don't need anything more than that considering that will let you overclock that 1055t all the way up to 4.0ghz if you want. My roommate has a 1055t with a hyper 212+ and it works great for him.

In reality those cards are fine up until 103C which is where the silicon and stuff starts melting/catching fire. I personally like to keep GPUs under 80 on air which really shouldn't be that much of an issue. Your best bet is to see what the highest you can set the GPU fan too without it being too loud for you. For example you can set it so that 0-40C = 40% fan (straight horizontal line). From there you go from 40C-100C. Make it a gradual incline with a slope of 1 so that 41C=41%, 42C=42%, 85C=85%, etc. Those cards run cool so they shouldn't go above 75C.

thanks alot mate thats a big help, would a case fan on the back under the psu help at all as they are pretty cheap, and is there any problem with running it with the side of the case off just while I'm gaming? I'm guessing the fans don't like the dust but would it still be ok?

thanks alot.

Wondering if anyone can give me some advise I've just bought a new system and its very loud while gaming.

Spec is
AMD Phenom2 x6 1055T @2.80GHZ
4GB RAM
GIGABYTE M68MT-S2 Motherboard
MSI 460GTX SE GPU
Windows 7 64

The system seems quiet while normal use but while gaming (metro 2033 full setttings) after about 10mins it gets very loud indeed! I took the side off the case while in game and it got much quieter within 2 seconds, then when I put the case side back on the fans kick in within 2 seconds again and get very bad. I can't work out which fan is being loud (I'm new to pc gaming!!).
Could it be my psu using too much power? Its only a standard 430W power supply and my graphics card needs two external power inputs?

Any help would be appreciated guys, cheers.
Didn't bother to read all the posts, but here it goes:

1. CPU cooler - the stock one is crap, a cheap and very effective cooler would be Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (check to see if the height of the cooler doesn't prevent you from closing the side panel, you need 160mm cooler clearance(. If the Hyper is too tall a more expensive alternative would be Noctua NH-U9B SE2 (but still cheaper than any decent water cooling and very very silent).
2. GPU cooling - there are alot of GTX 460 aftermarket coolers but i would really recommand returning the card and buying one with a factory custom cooler like MSI Cyclone or Twin Frozr II....in my country they allow you to return the product in 10 days and get a full refund if the product is in mint shape.
3. Case cooling - buy a couple of Scythe Gentle Typhoons AP-14 or some Noise Blocker BlackSilent Pro.

1 - Already recommended
2 - He has the MSI Cyclone Cooler
3 - AP-14 are incredibly difficult to find right now. Yate Loons would be a cheaper alternative while still getting just as good of a performance.

right I installed afterburner and fired metro 2033 up. After turning the 460 fan up and down I could hardly hear it, seems quiet so the noisy one is the cpu for sure so I think i'll get a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ as recommended by you guys. Very cheap too!

Another problem is that I've now been getting a couple of random shut downs kind of like a fuse is going! Would that be the PSU struggling with the card?

CM 212+ is a great cooler, runs at good temps and pretty quiet. The cyclone card series are good too, however they're pretty noisy at full speed. afterburner comes in with a lot of help there.

How is air circulation inside your case? It seems to me you have a poor airflow, and the 460s are pretty power hungry cards... The fact about open case work is pretty clear, as you give space for some air circulation to the vga, reducing the overall temperature inside the case. When your chassis panel is closed, however, most of the heat generated by the video card (which doesn't exaust by itself out of the case) passes near the cpu before being expelled by any fan (PSU or Case Fan). This heats up the cpu cooler, which makes it spin a lot faster trying to keep down temperatures.

As a good suggestion, I'd improve as much as possible the airflow inside the computer, setting a good fan behind the cpu, pulling air out, and making sure there is something pulling air in near the hard drives / video card.

System seems to be getting hotter when the side panel is applied. Time to get a new case. They're cheap. Make sure you get one with good airflow.

Your side panel may be rattling.

Gigabyte motherboards can be set to control fans through Voltage (3-wire fan cables) or Pulse Width Modulation (PWM; 4-wire fan cables). So you're in luck: whatever fan you have you can control it through your mb. Just be sure you set it up properly in BIOS.
