I have an Sapphire Radeon HD 6670, but when it is idle, after some time, the temps go down to 37C. Since on other sites people say that their cards Idle at 60C, is that normal or my GPU is downclocked or the sensor is broken?
Thanks in advance.
Edit : By the way I am using MSI Afterburner and AMD OverDrive to Monitor the Temps.

Modern cards will downclock themselves to not put out as much heat and not use as much electricity when in idle mode. There is generally an idle mode, which uses not much of the card's power, a moderate use mode, which uses more than the idle and less than the gaming mode, and then a gaming mode, which gives full power to the card.
What HostileDonut said. My 5850 idles in the 30s. I would worry if my card idled in the 60s. I don't think you have anything to worry about.
