My water cooled HD 7950 idles at 30-40c but at 30-40% load I am hitting 102c within seconds. Played a game for a few minutes to see if they would rise enough to shut the card down but it did not rise above 102c even when loads went up towards 65-70%. I am thinking bad or too thick TIM but does anyone have any other thoughts on the matter? The heat block has an exposed side so I can touch the actual contact block and it feels cold; as in not cool but cold. I have two radiators in the loop for just the gpu, a 120 x 4 and a 140 x 4.
