What temp should my XFX Radeon R9 270x be running at normally when only watching livestreams and surfing the web and what should the temp be with in games like BF4? While on the internet and livestreams my gpu runs at about 48 to 50 C and in games arround 70 to 80 c.

That's rather normal for the R9 series at stock fan speeds. What I would suggest is installing MSI Afterburner and setting a custom fan scale curve. I've found that the R9 series has some rather weird fan settings by default that cause down clocking to keep temps low on the GPU.

Select Auto Fan Speed then go to settings => Fan and enable "user defined" (forget the actual name of it, but it starts with that). From there just mess with it while in a decently taxing game until you find a good configuration as so that it stays cool, for R9 series I'd try to keep it below 70c max (very possible with custom fan curve).

In any case, those temps are perfectly fine for the R9 Series, if it doesn't bother you to see them that high you can leave it as it is. Personally anything above 75c makes me nervous.

these are acceptable temperatures , a bit above average but nothing to worry about really...
graphics cards can withstand even temperatures around 100°C
if the temperature of your card doesn´t exceed 80°C during heavy load then you are fine ...
as akensai stated if you want to lower the temperatures then you can try to set fan speed manually ...

Is this a good setup for my fan?
