Just finished building my computer today, with a GTX 570. It's running top notch except for the heat. My GPU is the worst, at around 44C on average. My System and CPU are reading 34C, and my AUX is at 30C. These heat up when I'm gaming, my GPU hit 67C while playing TF2 maxed out.

I'm getting temps from Speed Fan, btw.

Anyways here's my case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112238

It has two fan mounting spots in the top, and I'm guessing they can hold fans 120mm or 140mm fans (not sure).

I'm new at all of this, what should I get to cool my system?

Those temps are actually pretty normal. My 570 gets up to lower 80s stress testing with furmark; again, normal. Fermi is known to run very hot. I wouldn't worry about it.

you should have all your fans connected and make sure all of them are running 100%. The lian comes with fans on top.

Well my friend told me that I should expect it to get hot. I'm also worried that my temperatures will continue to rise as I game for longer, these temps are what I've got with my computer being on for about 3-4 hours for the first time, and the gaming temps are what I've gotten with only 20 minutes of gaming.

Anyways should I worry about getting a fan or continue to monitor my heat, or not worry about it entirely?

I'm pretty sure my fans are working properly, you can see them spinning in the case at a blurring speed, and I feel air moving out of my system.

Top
Front
Back
Cpu fan?
The two fans included aren't actually located in the top. There's one in the upper back and another bigger one in the lower front.

My GPU has a fan on it, of course. Along with my PSU and the heatsink on my CPU.

Besides that I have "optional" fans.

Your GPU fan is almost certainly not working at 100%, which is normal. However, your temps are still very much in safe range. If you're worried about how hot the card will get, download furmark, a video stress testing program, here:

http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/

Run that for 20 minutes or so. It will get HOT, but temperatures should level off at about 83C.

If you're still worried about temps, download MSI afterburner and manually adjust fan speed.

My GPU used to run at 90 degrees playing The Witcher then I cleaned the heatsink and now it's about 70 degrees max. What GPU are you using and is there an aftermarket cooler available? I wouldn't worry if it's 60-80, just keep an eye on it.

Thanks guys.

I might overclock my computer but the deal is that I almost don't need too.

So should I decide to overclock my computer, what are some good fans to get?
