    That's on the very hot side. It's not dangerous in the short term, but it will shorten the life of your card. Check out this topic:

    I have given some instructions on how to bring a reference 6870 down to about 75 degrees, and that's with an overclock of 950/1100 simply by using MSI Afterburner and setting a custom fan profile.
  3. also try cleaning it from dust ...
  4. Furmark basically stresses your video card to it's maximum and is beyond what any game can do. It is designed for short period usage only to test for stability. I would not worry about 91c using Furmark.
  5. I beg to differ, I've been monitoring my GPU usage and I hit 99% constantly with close to full memory usage. So Furmark is actually a perfect way to test temps.
  6. thanks for all the response, appreciate it...

    btw... i'll try setting the fan speed manually.... and see what would happen^^v...

    thanks again....
