Today i received this card:

!st off, omfg, this card is Amazing at putting on such a great display, and performance is outstanding, but,

Amd Overdrive says my card is running at 70oC while playing Warcraft, and any other game, is this something to be wrroeid about? as id like to start using my other monitor on the card also

Card Temp: 70 in game
Fan speed: 40%

70C is perfectly fine. Start worrying if it gets close to 90.

You can always bump up your fan speed too, from my past cards they don't start to get loud until you push them past 60%.
