this is my rig atm im haveing a BIG prob i keep getting a blue screen as of lately and i think it down to the fact that my hdd or gpu's are over heating @ idle my cards re @ 55-57 on all four gpu's witch i know isnt right tbh.

my processor @ this is watercooled and stays under 45C under max load.

anycase if is the case that somthing just plain overheating i like some suggestions on case and watercooling equip as im fcuked off the with blue screens!

How are you cooling the Northbridge? Is it also watercooled? What's the error code in event viewer?

The northbridge normally gets cooled by the CPU fan. If you remove that fan, then you have to compensate for it and install another fan (or a water cooler block) to cool it.

The little thing is rather important and it should be cooled properly.
