Are you running more then one monitor? on my 7950 I get a idle temp of 33C with one monitor, and 45-50C while running two.
I also had to change the tim on my gpu because xfx put way to much on at the factory. old idle temp was 40C with one monitor, and 55C with two, the new temp was 33-36C with one, and 45-50 with two monitors .
My load temps are 80C at 1GHz in kombustor, and 75C in heaven and games
Edit: I just read your system specs, and I see that you are running two monitors. If I was you I would change the thermal paste on your card, to something like MX-4 or arctic silver 5.
Your card will most likely have two stickers on the screws saying warranty void if removed, those only apply in the EU, you are 100% allowed to remove the cooler on xfx cards in North AmericaEdited by rafety58 - 3/2/13 at 2:06pm
