hello! i just put in a p8z77-m pro motherboard and im a bit concerned about keeping my cpu and graphics cards cool . i have a deepcool iceedge 200t because i want to overclock a little but my main worry is i have two gtx 550ti cards fitted with very little room between them ( no choice) one card runs ten degrees hotter its 70 degrees celcius , i dont think its that bad but would like someone elses opinion . here is my specs thanks in advance !

Hello noobtrev;

What's your case and case cooling like?
You didn't mention your CPU temps.

That GPU 70C temp and 10C spread is while gaming under load, right?
That's a pretty normal condition in a closely stacked GPU configuration.

Do you know if Skyrim stopped because of system overheating?
79C is nothing to worry about.

CPU temp is fine too - you can start overclocking anytime. Just gradually move up in speed, testing and monitoring the CPU and system temps.

You're in good shape.
Just keep monitoring the system temps every so often.
Especially on hot days which can cause the system temps to spike higher.

What you might do, maybe once every six months, is to swap the position of the two graphics card.
Give the 'hot' card a rest in the cooler spot for a while & balance GPUs out over time.
