Im asking because my gtx 480 runs 875/1750/4200 all day every day running einstein@home and the gpu has never once gone over 50 degrees.

Its with a gpu only block with stock fan @40%. IM using a 240mm rad that cools both my gpu &core i5 750(rad>>cpu>>gpu)..its a little warm rite? My i5 idles @ 28 & gpu @38....

My air cooled 470 gets better idle temps and the same load temps as yours, you probably don't have enough rad.

Ya the rad isnt up to snuff, but your temps are fine though and your gpu is probably taking a heat dump from the cpu.My setup is pump -> gpu -> cpu -> rad so my cpu takes a heat dump from ym gpu , and clearly from your results id have to setup a new loop just for gpu to avoid one component getting a heat dump. Its still quite a bit lower than stock and that aweful noise is eliminated. And damn you guys and your SFF builds, ive been doing everything i can to not build one lol.

76C is no biggie....get your Fan off of Auto and set it at 80% while gaming for cooler results......Tri SLi 580's @ 80% Fan rarely break 82c when gaming.
