I read somewhere about bad cooler on HD7950 DirectCU II. Same overheating...
They show exactly how cooler don't tuch one part of graphic chip... But that is ASUS and they hide problems very well.
When you see 3 slot cooler you expect 65-70C on high OC but my ex 580DCII reach 80C with mid OC easy, big, massive, awkward...hard to install, that massive cooler make bad noise and dangle when you install card and blow 80C in my PC, little out, little inside. Every other hardware was little hotter than with stock cards.
I hate when someone buy something and other start to blame other hardware for that.
That massive coolers are not as they seem in many cases.
After that I use for myself only cards to blow air out of case.
And no such bad case on the world to make these temps.
I don't look that open cards at all.
