It's a little warm, but it's acceptable. What are your loads?

Your sig is too spread out. Put them closer together, or make the font smaller.

74C is a little warm as well, but it's also acceptable. They can tolerate in the mid 80s, for load.

You can probably add in a side intake or another intake fan, if you want. That should help a little.

^ good idea... most people either got a Thermalright HE Cooler or they removed the current heatsink and put new thermal paste on it... or both

So you don't reccomend overclocking my 8800GTS like everyone is telling me ?

Im gona try overclock my new CPU aswell, its on stock cooler. How hot should i let it get before a aftermarket one is required ? my CPU is in sig.
