Guys,
I own a 22" display and have now bought a 24". Great. However I have now joined the two to make 3360x 1050 resolution. Not a problem. However my temps have shot up from around 82c to around 92c under load. I play Anno 2070 a lot. I have six 12cm fans in my case is there anything I can try other than water cooling which I can't afford to bring those temps down? I have tried putting a 12" desk fan next to my PC but it made almost no difference.
My specs are in my sig.....

I see no signature.

Also, have you made sure that your card and case are free of dust?

The 5970 is quite old, you might want to clean it out.

Also, do you have a custom fan profile on MSI Afterburner?

Is the fan working correctly/going up in speed on higher temps? You can check with speedfan or GPU-Z, most likely.

Yes the fan speeds up as the temps rise and throttles back when they begin to drop. I regularly clean my PCM and components with an aerosol spray duster which blows out any dust. A custom profile in afterburner burner which was mentioned above might be the way forward. Thanks for your suggestions. This card is ageing but it will still max out any game I've got so will stick with it for now.

Try opening up the side of your case and manually cranking up the fan speed to 50-70%.
