Hi guys, So i have a vaporX 5870. Runs really well and seems to have no issues but with BF3 and Skyrim. now i think the reason is that only those 2 games push the card. So after playing either for around say 20 min the temps on the card go way up.

ADA64:
GPU Diode (dispIO) will show around 58c
GPU Diode (MemIO) will show around 64c
GPU Diode (Shader) will show around 68c
this is with the card fan at 75%

Now i know these temps arnt bad at least i dont think so but if it gets any higher i think around 70 the card shuts down and display is killed and the card will have fans go to max. im assuming its the safety procedure for high temps hitting the peak. My MCP, north bridge on this MB was causing issues before ( Zotec 9300) but i fixed that and now its only maxing at like 52c.

So Either the card is not cooling itself corectly or my case cooling is not good enough or something in between??

System specs
Water cooled CORSAIR CWCH50
Pentium 6300 O.C to 3.4Ghz
Zotac 9300 G-E
4G Ram
Sapphire Vapor x 5870

Forgot to mention that the heat isnt even by the card fan, its in the front of the card where you plug in the extra power.

Is there way to check what the cutoff point is? like the heat safety switch? Or is there logs stored that can tell what the shutdown of the graphics was caused by?
