So how do you resolve Directx heating up your graphics card?

So here is the deal for some time now I noticed when a game gets a update in the graphics areas certain portions of that game heat my graphics card up like you would not believe. Until recently this was mainly swtor, well its swtor, a crappy game so it did not concern me. Another game of mine, just did a similar update and mentioned something about directx. It kind of dawned on me that maybe it was this component overclocking my video card or something, that was causing the problem. On normal games like Blizzard Entertainment I do not have this issue.


My processor is AMD Athlon II X3 450 Processor 3.20 GHz

Installed Memory RAM 4.00 GM, I know low for the times, but back then 2gbs was the normal.

System Type 64 bit operating system.


Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series.

The description of Directx I read said something about speeding up your components. This would cause more heat on my graphics card, if I was understanding it correctly. The game in question just upgraded there graphics to Directx 11.


Any help would be appreciated in how to stop this from happening.
