Video Card cooling???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a XFX 6950 2GB video card running @840/1325. While gaming it runs from 82-87c (crysis 2 2048*1536 all maxed). I'm wondering if that is too hot and I just ordered a 2nd one for crossfire. How will this effect the temps and should I get aftermarket cooling? If so, what would you suggest??

Your max load temp is 95c, as long as you are under that you will be fine.

That is high, It will get worse with the 2nd card arrives. What fan speed you roll at when it's in the mid 80's ?

-Not too high, just high.
