Need Ideas For Cooling 2x GTX 590 (Classifieds)
I posted this just to see if anyone knows of any hardware or techniques to further cool my GTX 590's. Right now everything is completely air cooled in my PC and nothing is OC. Cards run at about 70-75 C when playing BF3, Batman Arkham City... and so on looking to drop those as far as possible so I can look into overclocking them.

70-75C is actually extremely good for GTX590s. Especially 2 of them.
That's no where near dangerous temps for Quad-SLi. Does your case have a side-flow intake fan? If not look in to rigging one near the cards to help with better airflow.

Agree with HoneyBadger on the side flow idea , when I had my quad sli setup in the old cosmos case - I used moose tape to fasten the fan to the cards - or you could use tie wraps or some other measure to fasten them ( moose tape was neat ) to blow cool air in , it helped quite a bit , ( over 10 degrees Celcius drop in temps ) but after moving to my new Phantom Case it is no longer needed . Good Luck .
