So my Sapphire HD 7950 with the Dual-X cooler randomly started idling at a higher temperature and getting a higher temperature at load after I ran a benchmark (3DMark11). When I tested before the benchmark, it never went over 70 degrees during Furmark but today it went all the way up to 78. It also started idling at a higher temperature of ~39 compared to the previous 33. I proceeded to completely restart my PC and the issue was fixed but after running Furmark and Unigine Valley and seeing normal temps, the idle temps started going up again. I then tested Furmark and as expected the temps are back up to the high 70's. It seems that at idle it is running at the 1.25 v, for some reason and I can't find a way to change it back to normal idle voltages, that it should be at when it is at max turbo speeds which may be causing the temperature increase at idle but the increase during load is explainable. Is there a way to fix this problem?
