Installing the XFX R7970 black edition.

Ok guys. i recently got my item and i was hoping if anyone can help me install this. Well i went i head and placed it in and i wasnt sure if it was right but i plugged in 6pin to the 6ping connector and a 6+2 to the 8ping. ok so now its up and working but the REAL problem is my framrate didnt go up at all. infact, it went slower just a bit. I was playing dota2 and with low settings i had 40+ to 60+ framrate back in my previous GPU. now its worse. what has happened? did i do something wrong?its also heating up and its freaking me out cuz even though it has warranty, i dont want to waste anytime sending and replacing items back and forth. here is a photo of my stats.

please someone help me with this.

  1. What on earth are those temperatures? 178C!
    More detailed specs are needed, particularly the CPU and power supply (Make, model or output on the +12 volt rail/s).
    I would say your biggest problem is the dual core CPU, i3 or not it's nowhere nearly fast enough to drive a 7970.
    What drivers are you using? AMD has made some significant improvements with the later releases.
  2. so from here. what should i do?
