105c=not good if you want your hardware to last more than two weeks. ;)

Suggest you direct some external fans on the cards, with the side panel off..;)

I would say 90c and under, got to take in to account your in a hot Country so cant expect to lower temps, get some cool air blowing directly at them.

ok so what is your room temperature, just how hot is it there?

If you are very worried you could literally downclock the cards, this will cool them down. That is assuming the cards are not faulty. So do the cards report the exact same temperature? how are you measuring temps?

i need a program to measure the temps, ATI catalyst is just giving me 1 temp which is 91 right now after like 3 4 mins of playing, originally around 80. dont have a thermometer here but i can say that im wearing shorts and a t shirt the fan is on full and my window is open and i dont feel cold, or hot :D

thank you very much :) well ocuk doesnt ship to where i live so it might be a long time before i can actually get the aftermarket coolers and the panel on my case also has a fan on it pushing air out of the case, ive tried to turn it around to make it push air into the case, still no difference.

with this tool i am getting 84 on the 1st GPU and 63 on the 2nd one at idle.
