I have two 7990 cards. I have just upgraded my drivers to the latest Catalyst 13.8 Beta 2 driver. But my idle temps seem to be ridiculously high, and I'm worried the hardware is going to get damaged.
My temps are currently 72.2 & 84.0, and 75.0 & 78.0. And the machine is idle.
I have run Process Explorer, and nothing is using the GPU more than 0.5%, and that's dwm.exe, so nothing unusual there.
The ambient temperature is about 18 degrees currently. My case is a Corsair 600T with 2 intake fans and 2 outtake fans.
Anyone know what's up here?
Gigabyte HD 7990 x 2 (standard clocks)
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
Previously using 13.4, have just upgraded to 13.8 Beta 2. Temperatures were also very high on 13.4, but not as bad.
Windows 7 x64
Idle temperatures seem to be hovering between 70 and 80 degrees. As soon as I start using the GPU it shoots up to 100 or so

This is on a new build, which has AVG. Also run Process Explorer to verify that nothing is actually using the graphics cards, they just seem to be running hot by themselves!
