New 7970 XFX DD Hitting 95°C Tags: Radeon Cooler Master Graphics Last response: December 21, 2012 10:29 AM in Graphics & Displays Share jakeythehobo December 15, 2012 1:28:35 PM I recently RMA'd my last card, because the fans rattled whe they went over a certain speed. If I leave everything at standard when playing Far Cry 3 on Ultra 2xMSAA, 1080p, my new card seems to hit 90°C. My last card would barely touch 80. If I do the furry & tessy test on MSI Kombustor, it'll hit 95°C, where as before it would maybe hit 81 at a push. The setup is the same as it was with the last card. Setup: Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8GB 1600mhz i5 3570k @ 4.2 Arctic Cooler i30 XFX DD 7970 @ stock Cooler Master GX 650W Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Any advice? Surely these temps are far too high for stock?

The last card during gameplay pretty much maxed out at 78c roughly. If I keep the fans at a constant 100%, it'll hit the 80c+ mark. assassin1234 December 21, 2012 10:29:27 AM dont run the fans at 100% it will damage the fan. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
