I was benching my 9800 with FurMark, and the instant FurMark starts my temps are already at 76c. Then it rises pretty quickly to about 90c, the fans kick on 100%, and it hovers around there. Then it goes even higher to about 102c and I just shut it off, I know temps like that aren't safe. I replaced the thermal paste and refitted the pads, and nothing. I even added a fan to the back of the video card, and it's only hotter! What is going on here?
