HX1000 HEAT ISSUE

I have a corsair HX1000 bottom mounted on my rig. great PSU but with 2 GPU's in sli right above it. I noticed that It get alot of hot air comming out the back of the PSU. Im sure this is normal, but It seems pretty hot.Hot enough to think twice and ask this question. The GPU's max temps are 60 for one and 58 for the other. thats almost 120 degrees. corsairs specs say the PSU will run 50 degrees constant and the max temp for the solid state capasitors are 105. Should I be worried at all or is there a way to get better ventilation with bottom mount PSU's.The whole bottom section is a concern with almost a dead zone of air movement. PSU and GPU's dont seem like they get vented that good.Any help would be appreciated....Sorry for the long post.

Is there a vent in the case below the PSU? If so, you should have the PSU fan facing down.

60C is not very hot for a GPU.

Why on earth would you add up the temps of the GPUs? If they're both running around 60 degrees, the hottest the air coming off of them could be is 60 degrees or so. The PSU will be fine.

yes but if one gpu is 60 degrees and so is the other thats 2 that are 60 degrees. the heat comming of both would be more i would think.there only a inch apart. maybe im wrong.but it makes sence to me

no vent and clocked to 720mhz 60 degrees is great
