6970 temp question
 
hey guys,

picked up a Sapphire 6970 2gb reference the other day and did some digging for the temps.

from what i can tell, idle should be ~35 degrees? Mine is currently running around 50 degrees with the fan automatically set at about 26%. I haven't overclocked this or anything, any suggestions on what to do, or is this normal?

Thanks.

you running more than one display? If so there you go

depending on some factors, 50c with 26% is not that bad :)

more importantly,hows load temps? 3dmark/furmark?

Ya your Card will run higher clocks with more than one display even idling at the desktop.
