I use Trixx for overclocking my 5850 and it shows temps only around 50c. I was using AMD Overdrive to monitor the CPU, it showed temps of about 53c. I blew out AMD Od and installed Coretemp. It also showed 53c but disappeared after a crash. I put in Speeedfan and it show the following: Temp 1 @ 36c, I think this is the card as it matches Trixx, it has a blue arrow pointing down, Temp 2 @ 40c, a green check mark, Temp 3 @ 80c, it has a flame, Core @ 41c with a green check mark. Can anyone tell me what the temp 3 means and is the flame my problem?
Also don't worry about that 80c temp it is a bad sensor and will always read that.Totally normal.
The temp is refering to he nb on your motherboard, The lowest ive ever seen mine was 79 and it only goes to 80c and never higher usually don't even move off 79 thought.
I would be more worried about the unheatsinked mosfets on that board. You can buy a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...016&Tpk=mst-88
