My System Specs

Default Is my 5770 running hot?

I've had it for about three weeks now, and I haven't overclocked it. CCC says the fan is at 50% speed and it runs at ~50C at idle. My case is an antec 900 - currently with only the top fan running at low speed.

this one

My HD5850 sits at 46C with fan at 21%. 23C room temperature.
In idle do you have 2D frequencies/VID?

Can you dumb that down for me? What are these 2d frequencies/vid?

I just turned on the remainder of the stock case fans on low speed in my 900 and it's running 46-49C at idle now. Room temp is 23C on average, if that matters.

Well, most important thing is your load temps. What's the max temp you get when your GPU is being stressed?

In 2D you should have lower frequency and voltage.
Something like my screenshot.

More importantly - I think we need to know your max / load temps. If you run HW monitor. ( just search cpu z - it's on their website. ) and play some intense game for awhile or run a GPU stresser . . . what's the max temps your seeing? Seeing any artifacting / problems in games?

Its pretty normal on stock frequencies. My 4850 is approximately 45* degrees without 2d clocks.
