Hi all,

Basically my temps go up to and sometimes above 85 when gaming with this card! I know that its perfectly safe for it to do so, but considering its supposed to be one of the quieter, cooler cards on the market I think this is a bit odd, do you? Its a lot louder and hotter than my old stock 5870 and my room temp is around 16-20 most of the time, with the card idle temp about 27-29. I have a Antec 902 case with air cooling only, but surely this card shouldn't be running this hot/loud?! I was playing SC Blacklist earlier and it got to 86!

Many thanks,

Diym

Have you checked for a build up of dust in the cooler?

Thanks for the replies,

The card is only 4-5 weeks old, and I gave my case a good clean out when I first installed the card. The fans go up to 75%, with the rpm around 3300-3500. Its weird, because when I first used the card on Metro LL with all the settings maxed out, it went no higher than 70-72 degrees and was perfect noise wise, even after extended amounts off gaming. Now it just keeps getting hotter an hotter?!?

Cheers,

Jonny

I don't trust my technical skills to reapply the thermal paste my self, so I think it's gonna have to be an RMA job! I'm using the latest drivers and had the same problem on the old one, but I am right in thinking that the card isn't running properly? Don't want to send it back and them say there's naf all wrong with card!

Cheers,
