Re: Running hot under load, even warm at idle.
Ok, so this afternoon I've been doing some stress testing with the card, the factory core clock is 738 on this particular card... or at least that is what GPU-Z tells me. I bumped it up to 788 to try a stress test to see how it would hold up, so after running Furmark for barely 45 seconds the fan on the GPU was at 100% and the card was steadily rising up to 90C and continuing to rise at a very fast rate. So I figured maybe it was a little much, so I backed it down to the default settings and tried again, same thing the fan went to 100% at about 45 seconds again with the temp steadily rising to 90C and would have kept going if I had no stopped the stress test. Then for a last time tried it again below default settings of 718 and the same thing happened again, don't mean to keep pestering about the same issue, I'm still new to this and this just doesn't seem right to me.
