    Ok this is what im running

    ASROCK SLI Mobo
    ATHLON 64x2 5200+ (2.7gb)
    GTX 260 Geforce
    2GB DDR2 667 Kingston
    Realtek HD Audio
    600w Stealth Module PSU

    Problem is my cpu overheats alot, my cpu fan is kicking out a average of 3100+ rpm, and my side case fan is sucking out at 1500 rpm, is that normal or do I need a more powerful fan on the side to run it?

    My gpu hangs on 60C idle and 80-85C when running shift, I was told my card is designed to run that hot but I really need some advice on my cpu temps

    You can follow this guide to control your GPU temps

    As for your CPU you could take the side of your case off, thats what i do.

    I have a Phennom X2 550 3,7 , Palit GTX 260 sonic-no oc, stealth 600W psu in a Antec threehundred case. 3Dmark 06 : 15755

    The CPU temp idle is 35 and load 55
    The GPU temp idle is 40 and load 57 playig Shift and Race On. So maybe the airflow isn't good enough or the CPU has to work to hard.

    I dont mean to be rude and I appreciate the feedback but i know the airflow isnt the best, I said that in my OP, however the riva tuner seems to solve it, it doesnt reboot now the fan speeds are set up.
