Default Hot hot heat

My computer runs so hot i was forced to take the side panel off and just buy a box fan to stick in it place, i have no money to buy a watercooling system...

But here is the thing I find odd, I recently took out one of my graphics cards in an attempt to cool down my system ( I was running three, now I'm running two) and the average temperature is actually higher now.

How can that be?

What temperatures are you getting? Post a screenshot of HWMonitor.

What is actually heating up? If it is your CPU or GPU, did you clean the dust on the heatsink? Otherwise you would need to reapply the thermal paste.

How is your airflow as well, in your computer case?

GPU's (2) idle at around 47c...gaming at around 70c

CPU idle at around 40c...gaming at around 65-70c

Pretty much no dust in the case, as stated, I have removed the side panel and in place just stuck a box fan which pretty much eliminates the possibility of dust.

Its not dangerous temps...i just dont get why it so hot.

That is an ample temp. 70C is pretty hot, yes. But it is not overheating.

Depending upon the type and model of the cpu, 65-70C can be extremely hot.

Was thinking of the newer chips, sorry.

What are your computer specs?

OK, My i5 760 can get up to 70C during gaming or being stressed by Linx. And I'm fine.

Yeah i didn't really think it was dangerous..i just thought it was strange because when I was running three graphics cards, only the middle would ever get near 70c...the other two wouldn't get close, but now with only two, they both run hotter than before. I know its ok...I was just wondering why.
