  1. Hell peeps I have 2 Geforce 7950 GT KOs, Sli is turned on. I have a 500 Watt power supply.

    i have 2 120mm fans(one in front one in back)

    Case is a Full tower. Using an nforce 680i LT SLi

    heres my problem:
    When initially installing the 2 video cards their temps were 48c average. Now days they get to 60C sometimes. Im worried that they might burn. Can anyone tell me whats wrong? Could my power supply be at fault?

    (the motherboard requires an 8 pin connector to power the processor but also allows the 4 pin auxiliary connector. just thought you should know in case that helps with the trouble shooting process.

    You may want to clean any dust out the video cards heatsinks. Are all of those idle temps? 60C while at work is nothing to worry about.

    While idle

    While idle the temp on the Vid card is around 53 degrees Celsius.

    I believe that your video cards are designed to easily live through 80C and greater, so unless your have artifacts I wouldn't worry about it.
