I've noticed ever since I installed a 560gtx (non ti), the cpu (i5 760) and gpu have both been heating up pretty badly while gaming.

A few months ago: CPU: 55-58°C / GPU: 60-64°C

Now: CPU: 60-62°C / GPU: 71-74°C

These are temps while playing counter strike : global offensive or dota 2. Both running at 1920x1200.

The room temperature right now is colder than a couple of months ago, so I'm assuming there's a cooling issue of some sort. Both of these are not overclocked.

any thoughts?

Sounds like you may have an airflow problem, or dust if temperatures have been increasing slowly but steadily. Was your previous card a blower per chance?
Try running your case fans faster, or add case fans if you don't have any besides what comes with the case. Make sure your cables are at least somewhat managed so they don't get in the way. Take out the CPU heatsink and graphics card and blow out the dust, it may have been building up slowly and over time made the heatsinks less effective.

Previous card was a ATI 4350, so I can't really compare them. The temperatures were okay for the first two months, but yeah it did gradually increase like you said.

Not much I could do about cable management because the Antec 300 isn't too great at it. I'll try cleaning it out though, thanks!

Yea clean out the front dust filter in your case. Also FYI neither of those temperatures are even high, let alone extremely high because you've got more than 20C before you even get close to the thermal limit of either the CPU or GPU. I believe "higher than before" best describes your situation.
