Very high temps with MSI 7950 Twin Frozr III - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Thanks guys, I think I'll just swap it since Amazon is pretty good with that sort of thing. Definitely still impressed with the 7950, though (^former green team fanboy); makes my old 560 look more like my old 9800. Can't wait to get one that I can really open the taps with. biggrin.gif

RMA the card. Even if you're doing light gaming I don't really see a reason it would be @ 70c with 50% fan.

change the card. Too many users have complained of overheating with MSI HD 7950 Twin frozr. seems like very poor quality control. If i were you I would get a full refund and go for the Gigabyte Windforce . its a much better cooler if you want to go for voltage overclocking.
