XfX 7950 Heat issues

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Recently I Just built my new gaming rig, and I have been noticing that my GPU temp on my xfx 7950 is insanely hot with an idle 56c and load 62-68c . I am extremely worried about this issue and was seeking some advice. I know high-end cards run hot, but the temps I am getting just doesn't seem right to me. Please reply with input and if someone could tell me a great gpu cooler that would be most helpful.

That's not hot at all. Under 90C is considered nominal. Under 110C is safe. Under 130C is operational. If you want to lower temps, get a Zalman VF-900CU or Thermalright HR-03 Plus.
Once again...
