hey guys. when running my 7970 on high load. Such as bitcoin mining or protein folding it gets in the 81 C or 177 F range. I think thats to hot. I may be wrong. I have used speed fan to speed up the gpu fan from 20% to 50%. After that ill get 60 C. I currently have 5 fans. Any ideas to cool down the tower. thank alot

Hmm, 81 degrees? That's not too bad - GPUs can LIVE up to a hundred five or so... I wouldn't worry about it too much.

You card is within spec, so I wouldn't be worried. High end cards put out heat plain and simple.
