Ive had my 3770k and gtx 680 sli in a loop for about 6 months,

So far been happy with the temps, my cpu tops out around 55 and the most ive ever seen on the gpus is 51 or so degrees, that was with supersampling running on some game (witcher 2 i think).

Anyway been playing crysis 3 lately and it seems to have given my system a total kick in the nuts, the heat is just pouring out of the rads and my gpus are nearly hitting 80 and the cpu is 70 or so. This is the only game to have done this.

Should i be worried? Do i need a new case and more radiators?

just turn up the fans, i know crysis 3 rely heavily on CPU and GPU. So if both are being used 100%, your system will run hotter vs other games that doesnt.

I have flushed and changed the coolant 3 months ago, even with a sythetic bench like an extreme unigine run or 3dmark my gpus go to 52/53 maybe,

Crysis just seems to destroy my system, but is 80 too hot?

this is what i would do, unless you add more radage, 80 is hot, but not too bad for your system
