Hi All,

Recently I installed a Powercolor Devil 13 HD 7990 in my PC. After a while I noticed that the card ran very hot (97 degr Celsius). I found out that the fan rpm's didn't increase when the temps went up.



Is this hardware or software (driver) related or is it difficult to tell?

Thanks in advance for any input on this.
