Mine? How so? I'd say mine is perfectly fine. My 4770k @ 4.8 doesn't pass 56c during the se 2 hour crysis 3 run.

AFAIK, idle temperatures are more depended on ambient temperatures that's why I thought so.

On 3 different systems I've built since January, all using the sapphire Tahiti LE, idle temps are 39-42c depending on the chassis and room.

Why is your room almost 90f ambient? That make no sense.

For some stupid reasons I can't explain. Anyway, maybe wait for some other and more experienced member to reply.

check ur TIM on the card, one of my hawks got that high and I saw that the TIM had actually melted out from underneath the heatsink and splashed on the fins (also caused dust to stick to it) Don't know if it was just too much TIM from factory or heatsink wasn't tight enough, the card was brand new...

He isn't the Thread starter.

OP, GPUs can take much higher temps than CPUs. Mid 80c is not dangerous, just a little higher than most 7870XT owners are seeing.
Since your ambient temps aren't that high, I'd say its a simple airflow issue or TIM needs replacement (but less likely if its a new card).
What case do you have? How many fans do you have & what's their orientation? which 7870XT do you own? Do you have a blower type or non-reference fan on it?

But to save time:
If its a non reference, you want to set your side fan as exhaust and have a strong fan pulling fresh air from the front of the case (or bottom) feeding the GPU.
If its a blower type, set your side fan as intake. Top fans (if any) should also be exhaust.

FYI, my 3930k idles @ 40c & one of the 7970s @ 42c with a 650 in between them.
I hit 90c on the top card after a long heavy game. Bottom card stays @ 82c.

Without the 650 sandwished in the middle, temps are 83c top card / 78c bottom card.

Here's how to put your rig in your sig:

Just a heads up, there is no reference Tahiti LE design. All custom.
