You DO need a higher wattage PSU but I dont think that would be causing your temps. Is this the sealed iceQ card that blows out the back of the case? If so your temps should NOT get that high unless you overclocked the card massively.

Monitor your GPU load with something like GPUZ and see where it stands. Oh. .and I edited my first reply.. Made some interesting errors that may have thrown you off.

Don't know if this is helpful but i have a sapphire vapor x oc 1gb 7770 and it runs at 60 degrees Celsius on high load, your psu seems to be very low for the card btw, its recommended on amd website to have at least 500W psu, could well be that your psu is under huge strain from the card

If your getting 100°C the card is probably faulty and should be returned. are your ambient temps abnormally high? Unless you live on the equator with no AC....

Id return it to the store asap then. Something has to be wrong.

You're using gpuz for temps right?

Yea. Id send it back as defective. if the store does not cooperate then RMA with manufacturer. it should be nowhere near that temp. Maybe a bad paste application or miss-seated cooler.

if you are considering switching manufactures I've had a great experience with sapphire and they are an AMD board partner. But it's probably just one bad card. Can happen to anyone

if you have the info on the PSU especially the 12V rail we can comment. But if it has the pcie connectors it's probably fine.it might cause crashes if it was too low. But NOT high temps
