Well, my current system has a athlon II 920 processor (quad core) which i have OC at about 2.9 ghz and it seems to be cooling well. What is really bothering me is my gpu, a Asus HD4830 which idles at about 60 degrees Celsius. Normally at load it gets to 80-90 degrees. I did a furmark xtreme heat test and it got to a max of 110 degrees. Is this too hot for a temp? I have my card OC at core 700mhz and memory 1070mhz I live in Arizona so my ambient temp is pretty high, with my case temperature being at about 30 degrees celsius. i have 2 case fans one input on the bottom and one output on top. If this si too hot of an idle temp what can I do to fix it? Thanks for any help you can give me

More fans, or maybe look into watercooling? Idling at 60 is not good, I dont even hit 60 on load hehe :p

Too hot is a relative thing - right... ;) 

60C idle is high - what speed are you running the GPU fans at?
Furmark @ 110 - I think thats fine for an oc'd card because in normal use it wont be that high, again what speed are the fans at?

I find that if you OC the ATI 48/58 series you need to run the fans faster and not use auto..
