I've recently put together a new build and it's been working like a dream so far. But i notice that even in games that shouldn't be giving my new card a problem, such as CS:GO or Borderlands 2, my Ref cooler 780 climbs up to 82 C and that seems way to high from what i was looking into.
It seems higher than my old 6870, and that card ran both of those games with no problems alos on max settings. I was wondering if this is a common problem? I ran a very minor overclock in EVGA Precision X (GPU clock 50+ and mem clock 150+) I set it back to factory after i noticed the raised temps in CS:GO thinking maybe something amiss with the overclock but the temperatures didn't seem to change at all. It typically runs idle at 37C.
Anybody have any suggestions? I'm pretty sure my Airflow should be decent enough. My specs are as follows:
i5 4670k OC'd to 4.2GHz H100I cooler 16GB Corsair Vengence RAM @ 1866Mhz ASUS Maximus Hero Corsair 750D Full Tower RM1000 PSU GTX 780 SC

enable adaptive vsync from NVidia control panel. What's happening is your gpu is pumping out excessive frames, causing it to overheat. You are probably getting 300fps or something on a game like CS:GO
