hi everyone as the thread says just wondering because i'll play about a hour of sleeping dogs on high settings and it hits high 60's with msi afterburner fan controller on which goes up with the degree's so if its 66c the fan is 66% sorry im abit of a noob with this stuff it has hit 74c on extreme settings oh and its on a monitor 1440x900 plus its heating up my radiator which inturn makes my fans run harder :\ any help would be appreciated :)

The temperatures are a little high but not too high to care for. As the fan speed stuck at 66%? You have to disable manual fan control in cataclyst control center

no its not stuck at 66% it goes up with the temperature so if its 55c it will be 55% fan speed so if its 57c the fan speed is 57% i just thought it would be handling the temps alot better especially since im not running 1080p either my case is a guardian 921rb all fans in except the top one because i have a kuhler 920 cpu cooler in it.
and i just checked ccc and it wasnt using manual fan settings

The fan speed settings look weird to me. For instance if thar card runs at 100c will then only the fans will reach the full speed? MSI afterburner is known to cause troubles uninstall it and see if that helps.
What are the idle temperature?

i wouldn't worry @ all , for a GPU anything below 85~90 is fine
and sleepin dogs is quite the "Gpu warmer" , so in other games ur temps mus be lower :D

well my idle temp is at the moment 38c but i live in australia and its about 30c so thats not too bad but when it starts to warm up (gaming) the fans really start cranking up like sometimes 70% i just thought msi twin frozr would be able to control the heat alot better :\ like 60% and maybe 55c not 60% - 60c

1 fan or 2 fans doesnot make much of a difference? Anyway the temperatures aren't that high if the room temperature itself is 30degrees.

Actually, lower res screens will cause you to have higher temperatures. The reason is you will get higher FPS and the higher FPS you get, the more heat you generate as a general rule. V-sync might reduce temps if you are getting higher than 60 FPS and you have a 60hz monitor.
