Crossfire temperatures are very unforgiving... - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Yes, pretty much any aftermarket TIM will be better than the stock stuff IMO. Plus, depending on how old the cards are, the TIM could be kind of crusty and not very useful.

Why are you surprised at 90c during Furmark? Especially seeing as your case has hardly any ventilation thats a pretty good result haha.

While you may not be ok with those temperatures, they're quite normal for GPUs. Especially ones running furmark.

Well, I've never used Furmark before, so I thought it was an accurate representation compared to gaming and what not.

The only time Ive ever reached furmark temps is when I looked at water in Skyrim with my 6970. It would hit 95c for some odd reason thinking.gif

Run a game and see what temperatures you get it will be well below what you get with fumark.
And isn't the max temp like above 100c so usually people say stay below 90c and you'll be fine so it doesn't seem like a heat issue. Could be wrong tough.
