No. GPUs are usually fan controled to stay around mid 80s.

Whaat is your fan speed at?

Fan speed is at max 24/7 according to MSI afterburner, i am getting temps of 90oC, just playing wow and not even doing anything on the game. It seems to go pretty high when i play a Facebook game, and watch movies?

As I explained before, if your cooler isn't plugged into your card then the fan speed in MSI Afterburner is useless. If it is, then that cooler is rubbish like I explained before.

That being said, the temps are still ok. The 5800s are hot cards.

Recmmomend a decent cooler for the card? Ill send it back. I believe the card has gotten too almost 95 oC as well. So yes, this is now a rubbish cooler. And I should've listened and read what you wrote before. I need to find a replacement for it though.

The fan is plugged into the card, it stays at the 4k rpm. But doesn't seem to keep the card cool.

The ones I linked in the other thread that you said were too expensive. Arctic makes smaller coolers but they pretty much resemble what you have which obviously isn't working. Another consideration is your card might be going out.

Have you tested your card with Furmark?

It'll do a graphics stress test and show if your cards dieing.

I'd let it run for 10 or 15min, which ever that mode is.
