Confused - is this an idle temperature? [still \'\'Way too hot\'\' - irrespective]
IMHO there is no \'\'penny\'\' solution to .. a pair of EVGA Nvidia 9500\\\'s in SLI configuration & video intensive games.
You need lots of cold air in & a very good hot air out system (of the room?)
I\'m currently using an intake 100mm flexi pipe hanging out of the (open) window pointing directly at my case fan via an air filter - the open window also dumps out the hot air. Cheap, simple solution?
