sapphire 3870 high idle temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey guys, i just got myself a sapphire hd3870 graphics card. its awesome runs games like gears of war very well. one thing bothers me though, and that is when it is running idle, just on desktop, Catalyst control centre is telling me it's running at around 50C.

i was just wondering is this fairly normal, or is it too high?

thanks
