AMD Radeon HD 6970 overheating issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, my Radeon HD 6970 graphic card was working today perfectly at low temps untill something happened.
Now temps are around 75-80c while idle and around 100c when gaming and computer boots itself often due to high temps.
Both cooling fans seem to spin fine and temps are still the same if I manually put 'em to spin at 100%.
What may cause this problem and could it have something to do with powersupply?
I've also tried to re-install graphic drivers.

How many monitor is on the card and have you checked if it's not filled up with dust inside?

I'm currently using two monitors and if I remove one monitor, the temps drop to like 45c while idle.
I also cleaned it up.

It's pretty late, but try reducing your voltage. That's what I did. BOOM MAX TEMPS 71C

EDIT: Oh and try removing your heatsink and put new thermal paste in.
