    On a freshly installed 580 alongside a gtx 280 for physx; I get great performance although temps are a bit on the high side... during far cry 2, heaven 2 : 85-87c on load, 62% fan speed, idle- 47c,42% fan speed. I do have 3 case fans and a side intake fan on the cards.
    I reckon the 280 is blocking some cool air from the 580...
    The 280 is running 50c idle.

    I guess it is a common issue with dual card systems, but are the temps within acceptable range? Is it possible to increase the GPU fan load speeds?:shadedshu

    Take out the useless GTX280 it isn't helping anything. The GTX580 can handle PhysX by itself, the GTX280 isn't helping any.

    You can also use Afterburner to increase the fan speed if you wish.

    If it doesn't help with my GTX470 it isn't helping with your GTX580.
