Edit: I looked in and found the memory temp. in GPU-Z while running Furmark again. MEMIO is at about 75C under load. I don't think that's too hot is it? Looking back at the shot where I had the mem at 1100 MHz the memory was at 76C.
Also, the "VDDC Phase #1/#2/#3" are all around 80 degrees. I'm not sure what those are...
75C is normal under load, don't worry
