    Not sure if this is the right section, but I saw "Cooling" so I figured...

    I built this ~1 year ago but started getting interested in it's temps this summer... The room I'm in has a temp of 33c + most of the time.

    CPU: intel core i5 2500
    GPU: Radeon 6870
    MB: DH67CL
    PSU: 650W Gembird PSU8X (main suspect...)
    Case: ATX Midi Tower Hantol 2007s

    GPU and CPU temps are around 50c when idle, go to high 80s when gaming for a longer period of time.
    I have 2 fans, airflow set to default, rear inlet and front outlet.

    Is there anything that could be causing these high ass temps other than the shitty PSU and is there anything I can do on my end to get em down?

    Is this PC overclocked ? 80 is way to high, Open the case and startup your pc, take a look to make sure all fans are running.. You might want to change the cpu heat shield and fan..
