MSI 7950 running hot at idle - Page 2

post #11 of 13
My MSI radeon 7950 had a small sticker on one of the screws required to detach the heat sink that specifically mentions "warranty void if removed". Looks like this policy may have changed? This is a newer boost edition version FYI.

It runs that hot being in the case with the other card.

I noticed you have 3 monitors in your signature. Dual monitors made my card run hotter (50*) at idle under Windows desktop. When I went back to single monitor, it went down to normal idle temp (36*).

Are you using unofiicial overclocking mode without powerplay support? What is your voltage at idle?
