ok sorry

I just never done it before and I wasn't sure if it was a good idea, like I said, my computer knowledge is very limited.

ok, new results:

Before:

After 2 mins: (~93 C. / fan speed 89%)

After:

After 15 mins: (~84 C. / fan speed 79%)

So this temps. seem much more reasonable.

It could probably be cooler, im STILL getting a gpu cooler in a few days, however, this seems to be a substantial difference. It is also 3 grades hotter than the normal level according to this:

It's not exactly the same model (im having a hard time finding the load temps for my msi r6850) but it seems like a reasonable indicator.

So yeah, im on the right track, thanks everybody, and sorry for so much double posting
