I've got a PC Power and Cooling 80 plus 750w. I am putting it to the test I suppose, becasue this is the first I've had two gfx cards hooked up to it.

Mine is spitting some heat out, the body of the PSU is Hot, so is the fan spitting some heat out too.

So I pulled out my Fluke, with it's temp sensor, sitting right at the exhaust fan, I am reading 44.9c.

Think I am over working the PSU with extremely overclocked cpu & ram, oc'd two 5830's, 5 fans?

Nah 750 is plenty for what you have, also PSUs are designed to suck warm air so don't worry about it too much, and that's one of the best brands around so I wouldn't worry about itt

just check the enviromental for your psu
http://www.pcpower.com/products/description/Silencer_Mk_II_750W/ (i'm assuming i found the right one)
looks like you're designed to operate in rooms up to 50*c ambient and no thermal overload till you hit 100*c 45 should be fine all day long

If you found that funny or something i said useful i always appreciate spare change

Was, but back in 2006-2007 it was a good brand.

And here is my model here. I bought it back in late 2007, the previous owner I believe bought it in late 2006 maybe or early 2007.

This is why I asked,

Quote
750W Continuous @ 40C (825W Peak)

I'm waiting for sparks to fly, ready to jump out me seat.

Edit:
I should have listed ambient of the room.

Ambient room temp is 28.7c.
