Anyone have any other ideas as to why its running so hot under load? When I am idling at deaktop temps are 32C.
I have 2x 6970 with the DCII cooler, I had to reseat the cooler on one card since it had both crappy contact (damn cards are heavy) and way crappy tim contact.
Reseated and dropped 20c under load.
