I've a strange problem with this video card:

Looking AMD Overdrive there is a strange activity of the card:

After booting windows 8:

Activity 0/1% and Temperature 26/30 degree

after a couple of minutes:

Activity 90/96% and Temperatyre 60/70 degree; 

the problem is that I do nothing except looking :-)

after a while it return to normal, Activity 0 and temperature 26

It's a driver problem (I've lastet beta 18/3)? It's a card problem?

thx in advice


This my spec:

Core i7 3770k - Asus P8z77-M Pro- Gskill 8GB - Enermax 650W
