Summer is here, room temp is around 30c+ during gaming.
As title says, gpu and cpu reach 90+c temps under load, 50ish on idle. I don't have any case fans atm, will they make a big diff ?

Other than that any suggestions ?

Case fan will make a huge difference. Right now your case is like a oven.

90c on 6870 should be fine, but lowering it to below 85c is best.
My 6870 is at the 90c too, but its getting old, 3 years... and has a stock cooler.

90c on cpu's is very bad, get a new cooler. I had this problem too.

I had 5xc on idle and 8x - 90c in games. I bought a aftermarket cooler for the cpu, now its.
19c idle 35c in games, and i even OC it too.


As you can see it makes a huge difference
