I got my computer over 2 years ago. Just bought this video card in the winter so i didnt have to worry about it overheating, but now its a big issue. I have a fan blowing directly on the gfx card right now keeps it at 85ºC under load.

WOW, what a difference that made.

Idle is now 38ºC
Load is about 48ºC

Im very impressed. I also put AS5 on there so i can expect the temps to drop a little more.

this thread isn't about AMD vs. intel, there are dozens of threads about AMD vs. intel, post there.

And congrats on lowering your temps around 50c from your 102c, any high and you could have video card soup.

You know what i was thinking, maybe you have high temps cause the stock heatsink wasnt make secure contact with the GPU core anyways WOOT
