so im newer to the building and managing of PCs. ive recently got the 7870 and im just wanna make sure im not doing something wrong. After about 10-15mins of BF4 on Medium settings my gpu seems to push 70c in game and only drops down to about 39-45c on idle.
XFX 7870 Ghz Edition 2gb (Stock)
BF4 Medium settings 60-71c
After game on desktop 39-45c
Nope thats about normal ide temps are a little high sounds like a lack of airflow in your case.
Ok ill try and resort it all thank you very much :)
That's about high norms for that particular card...
I had a 7850 xfx core for a spell, and that's around the same as it.
gpu´s under full load can easaly hit 90 degrees without problems.
That is well within the norm for 7870s except maybe just a little warm for just medium settings. (but that maybe just bf4) I would say look at your case and see if there is something that can be done with improving airflow. Normal cleaning, cable management, adding a extra fan to increase airflow directly to the gpu. XFX are hot running cards anyway. Just keep a close eye on it.
That's fine. My 7970 runs at 100C when mining coins.
