My graphicscard (GTX660) seems to be overheating... This started to happen when i installed a Samsung SSD into my computer.

At first the temps went all the way up to 90 - 100 degrees (C) when gaming and about 50 - 60 when idling. I sent my GPU back to the ones I bought it from to test it but there was nothing wrong with it.

Then i sent my whole PC to a PC Service and and they tested it and said that there probably were something wrong with the motherboard, so I got a new motherboard and now it runs much cooler but still not as cold as it did before I installed the SSD. Now it runs about 50 - 70 when gaming and 32 when idling.

If anyone know what's wrong, please answere me here! ;) 

Here is my hardware:

GPU: GTX660 (Asus)
CPU: Intel i5
PSU: Cooler Master B600
Old Mobo: MSI H61M P31
New Mobo: Asus B75M-A
SSD: Samsung 840 evo 250 GB
OS: Windows 8.1
Chassi: NZXT Phantom

Sorry for my bad english.
Thanks! :)

50-70 is really normal for gaming :) . h61m boards are the weakest cheap boards to go with. a b75m is much better :) .

Is 80 degrees also safe? Because when i played Kerbal Space Program it went all the way up there.

Btw thanks for the quick reply!

MSI H61M P31 has lots of complaints and most Reviewers had a similiar statement
lots of problems
lacks expansion slot
badly engineered

Keep an eye on it though, this seems very odd behaviour. MSI afterburner will do a wonderful job of plotting graphs of temperature vs fan speed vs GPU load.
