If the highest temp you get on your GPU during Crysis is 65C, that's not bad...that's quite common for most cards. ;)

65 is likely the temp the card was at after the crash was said and done. By the time the game completed the crash and the user got back to windows, the card temps had time to go down.
Unless 65 is the peak temp pulled out of a log, I'd recommand the user to use the log feature in MSI afterburner and review it once he gets a crash.

I agree, the temperature you'll see in Afterburner after a crash is what the card returned to after the few seconds of the black screen/driver failing/crashing and recommend he check the log file to see the actual max temp its reaching

Turn on the OSD in Afterburn to see the temps while playing games.

Good point and agreed...I just assumed he traced back the temperature plot since he's using AB.
