Good day,


My friend has build this great gaming desktop for me, but the temperature while playing games of my GPU is getting really hot. I'm afraid that there's something wrong with either the games I play or card itself. The gpu temperature while idle is around 52C and when I play a game (Skyrim, Planet Coaster), the temperature rise betweem 78-90C. I've downloaded this small program to manually control my fans, and even when I set the GPU fan at 100% (4100 RPM) the temperature won't get lower than 80C. I already checked the amount of dust and cleaned it. I always have 58+ FPS while playing though.


My set up:

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Intel Core i7 2600K @ 3.40GHz

8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 651MHz

3072MB ATI AMD Radeon R9 200 / HD 7900 Series (MSI)


Does anyone have a few tips for me?
