3870X2 Problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

I have a big problem with my graphic card. In idle, the temperatures are around 45*C, but in full load, it reaches 100*C. I tested this on games like Alpha Protocol, Aliens vs. Predator, World of Warcraft, but the temperatures are the same. What do you suggest about this?

Thank you in advance!

What Hy3rid said....

There are multiple things you can do but those are the major ones

Others include ;
Reseating
Placing fans under, on top or near the GPU to improve air flow etc..
Make sure your case is cable tidy
Make sure there arn't many components in front of the fan to block air flow

surely you need some new Thermal Compound on that GPU of yours!
