a couple of days ago i noticed two connectors in my pc were unplugged so i open the case to check it out i couldn't see anywhere for them to be plugged into so i just close the case and start up my computer and when it turned on i opened msi afterburner to monitor the heat of my cards(i always run afterburner to monitor the heat) and both of my nvidia evga gtx 560 tis were at about 55 to 60 degrees when before, the first one was about 35 and the second one was about 27. any ideas on why there both so hot now p.s. i didn't unplug anything (i think)

That is quite a leap in temps.. can you describe the connectors that were unplugged? I doub't their relevant but its worthy of note

Well there you have it... your cards might could use more airflow

from what i see, you reconnected the side panel fan, maybe that wasn't a good idea, the GPU pushes heat from the top/ side however you look at it, maybe the side fan is now blowing against the air coming out so GPU cannot get rid off the heat as you're pushing it back now

See for cases with a side fan. you need the side fan to blow cool air across the GPU's otherwise its not doing any good
