x850pro with high temps...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I can't believe I've been so stupid, but lately I haven't been able to play any 3d games, I thought it was due to my cpu being unstable from heating issues a while ago and that it was just generally newer games over really really old ones, but after just trying some more games and realizing it's only been 3d games, figured it was maybe my vid card, so went to check temps, and they're 55C at idle, I clicked some test for artifacts thing and the temps jumped to 70c in a few seconds and moved up to 82C before I stopped it.

Could this be crashing my computer or would video card problems just cause the screen to black out or something? Also, why are my temps so high, I just cleaned out my case completely a while ago, and the video card doesn't look dusty or anything.

yeah, when a video card overheats past its highest threshold it can crash games.
