God I want that card lol but had no clue it ran that hot?
Found this quote in regards to clocks:
"Its not a Bug. All new GPU AMD ot Nvidia have 3 clock settings, Low 2D, High 2D, High 3D. The moment you connect 2 monitors the card goes to High 2D to keep up with the extra pixels. Its not really needed but AMD/Nvidia made the drivers in mind with low end cards also."
In regard to temps I have the 6950 TF3's less of card but certainly lower temps
I do find on my one unlocked 6950 vs my non-unlocked 6950 the shader runs 13 degrees higher (1408 vs 1536)
pic shows both cards at 950/1400 1.25v idle vs load using prime95 and kombuster for 10 min
Hopefully someone here has a lighting to compare because searches do not come up with anyone that uses HWinfo64
the only suggestion I have is to close all other monitoring software like AB or GPUZ in case there is a conflict, then restart HWinfo
