So I just finished my build with the GTX 690 and jumped right into some Diablo 3, everything stock.
I was initially seeing temps on both GPUs of 71-72 which seems high to me, but the fan seemed to only be set to around 45-50%. I am running the game with all high settings and at 2550x1440 resolution, but this is still not a graphically intensive game.
I tried manually setting the fan higher but it didn't seem to take. I did turn on software control of the fan and when I went back into the game the temps got into the mid 60s but the fan was also running at ~60%
Does this seem normal? I just feel if I am hitting 70 degrees at stock in a game that is not graphically intensive then I am facing paltry results when I start trying to overclock.
