Odd temps with overclocking 7950

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I decided yesterday to overclock my 7950. I am running stable at:
Core: 1000
Mem: 1500
Voltages: 1.2

I idle at about 30 C which is A okay with me. But after I game for a while and I stop gaming it never drops back down past 43 C. The only way I've found so far to drop it back down is to crank the fan speed up to 100% and let it set there for a little while. I have plenty of airflow in the case so I'm not sure why it won't go back to the 30 C while idle. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

My guess is that you turn your pc on blah blah everythings at idle nothing generating much heat, you game and everything starts making the case warmer so by logic your card is being fed warmer air

Even then considering the 8 case fans, the ambient temps of about 18 C, and the fact that I'm giving it time to cool down it should cool down more. I could do that easily with out the overclock.
