Radeon R9 270X running hot

Hi,

I recently purchased a used Radeon R9 270X, however I'm not sure if the temperatures of the card are ideal.

It is running at peak temperatures of 78 degrees Celsius at 99% activity with the fan speed at 81%. (This was while I was playing Dirt Showdown)

Is there any way I can lower the temperature?

When I played PES2018 the temperature increased to low 80s

I have already replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver ceramic 2 and cleaned the fans.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

78*C on a GPU is perfectly fine, they are designed to withstand even 95*C.

Ok, thanks for that.

I thought I would ask anyway because my old GPU would peak at around 70 degrees
