My 7979 overheated

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey

i am using 2x7970 in cross fire. i am running a game ( Guild Wars II) with 1920x 1080) max setting. I have notice that the GPU meter indicate a rising temperature which reach 69 C and it was rising until i increase the fan speed to 46% to reduce the heat. But the fan noisy at this level, i want return everything to its normal condition. Oh By the way i was attempting to overclocking my GPU and CPU with a PC shop guy. He did increase the CPU to certain Hz. But then i tried to return it to normal.

So did i miss some setting and my GPU still running in over clock?

am very noob in overclocking and i have no idea how to do it. so please help me with simple information.

Those numbers look about right. 925mhz and 1375mhz on the core and mem should be the stock for your cards. You will be fine. I recommend going through some posts in the overclocking section and read up there. That way you can familiarize yourself in this type of area. Enjoy your stay at Overclock.net!

69c is fine for those cards. Anything after 85c is when you should worry and fix it.
