    CPU & GPU too hot even after Zalman 9900 & 6 Fans??

    So I must say, I'm really really worried right now. I don't do any OC. I don't run any hardware intensive games. In fact, the most I ever do is usually just play videos and photoshop. And yet my temps seem to be sky high for what I'm doing.


    Can someone help me explain why pls?? I'm really worried!!! Considering that I'm not doing anything except downloading and watching vids (i bought the set up for future video/graphics/gaming projects that I have not had time to do yet), it's really hot.


    case: Antec p190 (all fans already set to highest speeds)
    2x150mm 3 speed top fans
    1x120 mm rear 3 speed exhaust fan
    2x120 mm Antec TriSpeed front intake fans
    1x220 mm side panel fan
    motherboard: gigabyte ga-ex58-extreme
    CPU: intel i7 920 lga1366
    CPU Fan: Zalman 9900 LED
    GPU: 2x evga nvidia gtx 280 OC in SLI. really only used to connect 3 monitors and an LG TV to it...
    PSU: Corsair 750 HX


    I also have 6 x 2 TB Seagate barracuda LP hard drives connected


    my temp readings are (according to Speedfan)
    CPU: 74C
    GPU1: 81C
    GPU2: 65C


    then it has a few "remotes and locals" that i dunno what they are but they're running at:


    temp1: 54 C
    temp2: 35 C
    temp3: 54 C
    local: 67 C
    remote 2: 74 c

    Why not try water cooling?
    I ain't got a signature anymore, someone stole it and I want it back.

    One option to check out your speedfan is outdated or not. Install & download HW Monitor software on your computer. It will help you to identify that your machine is not in danger of overheating or any other type of technical issue

    Did you use thermal paste or a pad between the heatsinks and the cpu and gpu?
