I bought a hd7970 GHZ EDITION 3 days ago and it works perfectly. Today i just downloaded the famous tech power up GPU-Z for some video card information .
Then i let it on the background and started playing Crysis 2 in Ultra Settings,,,High resolution texture pack,,,,,2560x1440 resolution.
I get about 40-60 Frame/sec ,,and no issues in the game during gameplay.When i closed the game i saw the GPU-Z and it says that my GPU load during Crysis 2 Gameplay was 99% all the time.The fan was auto and when gpu load was 99% fan load was 60%.This happens in all my games when i max them out.Is this a bug,or i am burning-in my video card,,or driver problem,or a crazy GPU-Z.Should i Low the specs of the game
Does this hurts my video card or is normal ?,,please reply.

My pc specs:
Asus z79 Motherboard lga2011
Intel core i7 3960x Extreme Edition
2TB Hard Drive
256GB SSD
ASUS HD7970 GHZ EDITION ---stock clocks ----------it is not overclocked
12GB 2133MHz RAM

part of the reason is that Crysis is a terribly gpu coded game at extreme resolutions(much alike metro 2033 is with anti aliasing). No matter what card you use, the game almost essentially takes it down.

Not just in Crysis 2 ,,also in Battlefield 3 and GTA 4

It's normal and what you want. The GPU is what puts out the frames. If it was only running at 50%, then you are only getting half the frames you could get. You want it running at 80%+, the closer to 100% the better.

As I said, its fine. This is what you want. You won't hurt your card as long as the temps stay good.
