Hello guys,

 

my R9 290 X (http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00HSY1TBK?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00) does, as the title says, overheat pretty often. Everytime I play games like Ark, Anno 2205 or other graphics card needing games i have to use the AMD Overdrive to set my Fans to 65+% speed, else the temperature rises above 80% and then at some points the system shuts down because of overheating.

 

Is this normal for this (Or all) AMD cards? or did i do sth wrong with my Drivers?
