Hi, I just built a system & I'm having minor issue with my graphics card. I mainly bought the HIS HD 7750 for its low temp & low power consumption(which I did read in multiple reviews particular to HIS card).
Since I ve build my system my AMD driver 12.6 has crashed 4-5 times in same number of days, not a big problem as the driver is recovered but still....
Also I ve been checking the idle temp on GPU Z and during idle the lowest it is 34-35 Celsius and yesterday it ran between 39 to 42. All the reviews I had read prior to buying stated the idle temperature for this particular card was ~29 Celsius. I ve not installed any games.
Is this something I should worry about?
This is my first build.. if anyone can advice me i would appreciate it
Case Corsair 600T with mesh
Zalman CNPS MAx 9900 cpu cooler
CPU i7 3770K
Mobo Intel DZ77GA-70K
Memory GSkill 8 GBx2
GPU HIS HD 7750
Seasonic 560 Watts gold
Those would be normal idle temps, 29°C would be low unless ambient is very low like around 20°C = 68°F.
Driver crashes can be a indication of a faulty card but playing with Vsync can get rid of them sometimes and since you have not even tried gaming with it try the 12.7 beta drivers.
