Max temp on a R9 270??

i just recently bought the R9 270 oc edition and ive read that the cards temp is usally at 60 to 70c under load and about 30c when over clocked. well i over clocked it and did a stress test with fur mark and it was almost hitting 90c im runnng 2 cards in crossfire mode my case is well ventilated i dont have the cards bunched up they are using the 1 and 3 pcie slot on the mobo so they have more than enough room to breath. i saw an article here on this site but cant find it. they were talking about the thermal paste being an issue. i just bought the cards so i dont wanna void the waranty to redo the paste. any onw what the safe zone for this card is??

    I suggest continue using them and if they burn out you are covered with warranty. Sending them back now might not work because they are in proper working order.
  4. yea i bout em thru new egg i think they give me some time to return em or something
  5. Ah then return them :)
  6. i did the fur mark test again and it stayed at 85 is that still to high??
  7. It's still hot. What should matter more is temperatures while playing games.
