It is a "Eyefinity Radeon HD 7570" and I'm concerned about its operating temperature because my pc keeps freezing up and makes a buzzing noise... Frequently while playing games, but occasionally while watching a video also...
When I am at my Windows Desktop (doing nothing), "CPUID Monitor" reports my video card is ~ 50 degress celsius. When I play X3 Albion Prelude, it runs around 78 degress celsius.
I suspect my graphic card is getting even hotter when my PC freezes up, but I cannot tell the exact temperature because I have to reboot the PC and I lose that info.
The computer is still under warranty and they have already replaced the motherboard I believe. It is a HP H8-1423. Specs here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c03528369&prodSeriesId=5295996
I am wondering if my radeon HD 7570 card is running too hot? 50 degrees celsius sounds a little warm when just idle mostly. I read 80 degrees is too hot and I see the card hitting 78 degrees when I playing a game.
Other people I see posting results between 30-50 degrees. But it is hard to find details for my card exactly... So I'm hoping someone here might have an idea if 78 degrees is too high.
Thanks very much for your time.
I've included the requested info below the best I can. I hope it is all right.
