XFX HD 6870 - Temps normal?

4315 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  I Mazza I
When playing BFBC2, with AMD Overdrive off, my card is hitting nearly 80 degrees C and the fan never seems to go above 33% speed. Is this normal? I seem to be having some random artifacts and a couple game crashes, and I am thinking it may be temperature related. I can bring the temps down by turning on Overdrive and running the fan at a manual 50%, just wasn't sure if others were seeing these kinds of temps.

Good luck
No, it's normal. 6870 fan ramp is like that.

it's a touch high, but still in safe threshold.

run Msi afterburner and make a fan ramp if you don't like it.
