Currently 58c & 68C, They stays around 67c & 72C with the big fan. need to open a window to keep the room at 22c. I had my case closed once & one was at 85c & the other was at 94c it was throttling down. But with only one in the case closed it stayed at 80c getting 750 KH/s 50% fan speed 345w~350w system power. so I would guess each 280X card used 271w. before I adjusted the Core voltage each card can use up to 345w with less hashrate & the heat it was kicking out room peaked at 28c.

Hi sherwind2010

That is one kick ass mining rig you got there... you know that you don't need all that hardware for mining cryptocurrency? All you need is fast AMD GPU's and a beefy PSU to handle the GPU's the rest can be minimal :)
