im using hd 7870. the first 2 minutes i on my pc my gpu is at 35 C but after that it goes until 72 C (yes 72 C without open any games)!!

when i play far cry 3 my gpu temp drops to 66 C. i tried everyting update driver, clean gpu fan. then i thought maybe it's windows aero problem. so i switched theme but still wont change..

check if the gpu fan is connect to the gpu board and spin also this card need 2 power cables and a 500 watts psu ,i would try her in another system to see if she does the same on temp rise .

yes, yes and im using xigmatek tauro power force 700W. i've been asking my friend. they doubt the main problem is with my hd 7870. they said there must be a program running since the temp is 72C.
like i said i tried update driver n check whether there's a program running. but still.. should i try reformat my window 7 or something?

Could it be the program your using to read the temp is just not reading it right? I have a powercolor 7870 myst edition only 3 days out of the box and it runs about 90c-92c while playing games seems a bit hot to me but IDK it was my first system. Only 35c at idle though
