Slightly off-topic.. wondering if anyone else can give me some input on the ATI cards?
The XFX 7950 crunches around 71C with a quiet 49% fan speed at 1000MHz core. I tried playing FarCry3 yesterday with it and the temperatures rocketed up to 80C with a loud 63% fan speed at a lower 900Mhz core.
Bit confused by that: gaming runs hotter than crunching? This also runs almost 20C hotter than the ASUS ones, so wondering if there's a safe limit to these 79xx temps?
