did you buy the monitor from costco?

im getting much higher temps for both my CPU and GPU now that i swapped my 1070 for a 1080ti. i think my 1080ti is heating up my CPU too, theres only about an inch gap between my GPU and CPU heatsink and when I put my hand in the gap its clear that a ton of heat is coming off the top of the GPU. before I was getting 55-60c on both components and now my GPU is reading ~70c and my CPU is at ~75 when under full load. i ordered a couple more case fans, hopefully that helps.
