At idle,the video fans are 44%. Gaming,thet were up to 90%. When you switched the direction of the top fans on the Alienware,the cards didn't go over 76c. And those were the stock settings. I never had to turn up the fans before. Thanks buddy. Give me a call if you can.

I called Thermaltake tech. and they are going to replace the cooling unit. Seems this has happened to more than a few people. Super nice people at Thermaltake. All American,so no language issues with their tech. service in that respect.
