Crazy temperatures! 95C! Why is this happening?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I had some serious issues with crossfire, and I think I know why. The temp of one of my cards is 95 C! This happened even after I re- applied the thermal paste on it, I used arctic ceramique. Why is this thing getting so hot? Before it never went above 70 C at load, 45C at idle. Here I play BF2 for a few minutes and it's at 95C. Right after quitting BF2 my xtx temp was at 59C and CFE temp at 95 C.

After a minute or so at idle the XTX slave cooled down to 45 C idle and the CFE master is still cooling down and it's at 70C.

Not that this has anything to do with wat you are saying...but my friend's CPU went up to 3000 F and nearly melted down because there was so much dust in his comp o_0. Crazy..

Why did you use ceramique instead of AS5? Ceramique is more for peramint things like ramsinks.

Well no reason really, I heard it performs as good as AS5 anyway. I use ceramique on my second card and on my CPU and everything and all my temps on those are great.

3000F is like lava...a socket A AMD without a heatsink will hit like 600F before smoking, and then exploding.
