Anyone ever run into issues with their Radeon card heating up after the new drivers are installed? I originally had Catalyst version 12.4, which came with the card. I installed the newest drivers and my idle temps went from 38-47 C to around 58-61 C. Thats a huge jump. The fan speed was the same, but the temp went way up. I uninstalled the drivers and went back to the original immediately. That can't be a normal idle temp?

Did the temps reduce when you re-installed the old drivers? And, no, what you described would be unusual.

What app are you using to monitor your system temps?
