i am sure i read where the 310.61 drivers have a bug that will cause the idle temps to read high in monitoring software such as GPU-Z. sorry i cannot find the link for that at the moment. but the P0 (3d clock) and P8 (2D clock) state clocks are unaffected.
its okay.. thank you for sharing, sadly.. I tried if it does read the temp wrong, i restarted my rig and wait till it reaches 62c on idle, then I touch the gpu back plate thingy above of the 550 ti, which is very warm and hot... reinstalled driver and waited for it to reach 38c on gpu-z , you can't barely feel the heat or anything rather than a bit cold
I don't know what's happening , I hope I wont resort to my last solution.. which is reformatting
