The trouble with prolonged heat is that it damages components gradually, your new fans do seem to have helped though.

EDIT: Found some applications, going to try one by one...

EDIT: The CPU temp is usually around 60C, will find some software to monitor it in-game instead of alt-tabbing to speedfan every few minutes.

Apparently the GPU is very close to the chipset and the extra heat between the two is documented as causing issues with overheating, see the Newegg feedback tab and you will see it being mentioned there http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128014

EDIT: "The northbridge heatsink set gets extremly hot and causes windows to crash at start up or when under loads with a sata drive. Hotfix was suggested and worked for me. IE Got to device manager/IDE ATA controllers/NVIDIA nfource serail ATA/controller/properties/port # your Hard is on/ then unclick "Enable Command Queuing. Fixes problem. Doesnt hurt to get some extra cooling in there either." Could this possibly work? I don't see how it fixes the heat issue though.

Hmm, I also read that having the side of my case could increase the airflow and thus reduce the temperature. Worth trying? The side of my case is always off, but I haven't tried putting it back on since I bought the two fans earlier.
