    Looks fine to me.
    Just wondering what thermal paste Rawns used or what he did if his GPU does not go over 50 Degrees C, looking at the above graph it says 85 degrees C

    That or Rawns just plays solitaire etc lol

    Am sure @Rawns did something like this originally with his GTX 280 and think he said his was 50 Degrees C under load ( when gaming ) - linky below :

    Another GPU recomendation thread...

    50°C seems far too low for a load temp (especially with the stock cooler). That's around 35°C lower than the load temps in every GTX 280 review I have seen.

    Or his PC is inside a fridge?

    Or he lives in a very cold place ( antarctica / etc ) and his desktop is in a garage or outside ??

    As Arthur said, 85C is fine. I had a 280 GTX which hit temps of 90C as the 280 was a particularly hot card.
    Most cards nowadays are quite hot (high end ones anyway)

    @Arthur / @ZeroHour - Moral of the story is, if you want to get a few or more NVidia GTX Titans ( black edition or not ) or even a similar card ie GTX 780 ti etc SLI'ed together - to ensure you have some where very very cold to store the base unit as it will be pumping out at least 80 degrees C per card under full load

    Failing that have a small room with a very good air con unit just for the base unit and the relevant cabling coming out of the room ie video ( DVI ), audio , keyboard and mouse unless you have wireless / cordless ones ie bluetooth or whatever.

    Even without load it was hitting the high temp (80C) and under full load it hit between 85C and 100C, consistently at the high 80s though, I have since reseated the GPU Heatsink, with arctic silver 5 thermal paste, so now runs nicely at full load sitting at 70C. However it is now being sold to make way for my new GPU

    That's good that it now sits at 70 Degrees C under load after the cleanup / re-application of thermal paste ( AS 5 ) etc

    In all honesty is not been to much of an issue. I have a 780 gtx and a 580gtx currently and internal temps are okay but my case has decent throughput of air.

    Re: removing the case sides, that won't help air flow much as you basically stop passive case through put helping move from the card. Sides on and fans will be better.

    @ZeroHour I picked up a beefier case fan today from work as the machine so will put it in my machine tonight. Airflow should then be nice and sufficient

    Do you actually need a PSU that powerful?

    If not, I would get one of these...

    The card alone draws 600w. I want something that would handle it and can have some spare.

    There's no way the card will use 600 watts itself. Check out AnandTech's review.



    ^ The figure above is for the entire system.

    Managed to find an OC one on Amazon for £244, and a 850W PSU on Amazon as well for £80. That plus the SSD you found (wahey) keeps me well in budget to get a Zalman gaming mouse (will replace my old one that broke, I loved it!) and an SSD holder
