Well I got a pretty good computer generation about 320 Mh/s. Both card graphic are overclocked at the limit, one hertz more and I crash.

The problem was the temperature about 80 celcius each so it make 160 celcius.

 Solution ? Mcguiver Fan ! (with oral-b dental floss) It's temporary but work well. Now it's 60 celcius

Hahaha, nice. Had problems with my heat too, so I had one of my comps in a drawer a little while back. Love the dental floss though! So much better than string or tape xD

Awesome!

Try to make sure the fans have a high CFM (cubic feet per minute) rating. The higher the better (but will be louder and more expensive).

another solution i've used

remove side panel from case
replace with furnace filter
place box fan blowing through filter

not pretty, but damn if you don't get lots of air moving.

I cleaned my cooler today and my load temps are down 10c  Grin
An aftermarket cooler also makes a big difference
