my 2 9600 GT overclocked (factory) idle on 70 and max out when in use(counter strike : source ) to 80. Is this normal for them to be running that hot idling? should i apply thermal paste?

Have you tried cleaning the GPU fan? You should also increase the fan speed to 100%. You would maybe need more airflow in the case.

How many fans are you running?

the fans onboard the gfx cards mostly. i have fans on both sides of my case (its an alienware case from 2006) but i dont think one is working , i dont feel air flow from one side. CPUIS shows me that i have 3 fans in/on my mobo (not my cpu that is water cooled)1 is working at 99% and the other 2 or off or just dont show up(o%). the fan in the back of my case works fine too. im a bit new to altering fan speeds (etc etc)but it seems that everything inside is connected fine. to properly clean the gfx cards fan do i have to remove them and clean or was a spray of dust-off sufficient enough?

-edit: also i should note the gfx card fan speeds are 54% for the top and 37% for the bottom. if there is a way to increase this, id love to know

Yes, in fact there is a way to increase the fan speed of your GPU. You can RiveTuner to adjust your GPU fan speed unless Nvidia has some fan speed adjuster software.

Here is a basic guide on using Rive Tuner. Start reading in the Nvidia section but don't do the overclocking part :)

im sorry but i dont see that you linked any RivaTuner guide lol
-edit: nevermind a little tinkering showed me how to do it. apparently guru's guide is a tad bit outdated but still works fine once you figure that part out. im running both fans at 82%
brings it down to a better tmep like 67° for the top and 54° for the bottom card.

i just found this to be concerning as in the summer my room is double as hot as normally would be. also quick question before im done...i was thinking of upgrading my gfx cards to GTX 460 1gb SLI.
can my p5n-d mobo fit both?

Your motherboard does not have second slot for SLI.
