My sapphire vapor x 7970 is having overheating problems. I am looking for a cooler to exchange out the default one that comes with the card. Any suggestions? Specs (if needed): i5-4670k cpu/ vapor x 7970 gpu/ z87 ASROCK mobo/ h100i cooler (cpu)/ 650w psu/ 8GB ram/ 1 TB hd
I had completed a Furmark test yesterday. Burn-in benchmark (1920x1080) 15 minute test. The temps max was at 84C with fan speed at 96%. Overall it was fine. However it is super annoying with a jet sound right next to you. When running Skyrim on Ultra settings, the temp stays around 60-67C. The max fan speed running Skyrim was 91%, with the lowest being about 60%.
My gpu has been having this issue where I run a game that requires a lot of effort from my gpu, i.e. Skyrim, Trine 2 and the screen just freezes into a green sleek. I then have to do a hard-shut down. Since it happens over time, I am sure it is a temperature issue.
