Hello, i have a problem with the Catalyst Control Center. ( or the whole Catalyst Software Suite, not sure.. )

My video card model is : EAH5670 1GB GDDR5

When i completely uninstall the whole Catalyst Software Suite( drivers, CCC, .. etc), and let Windows 7 automatically install the video driver,  the temperature drops to 40* , and it never actually overheats, not even in games.

When i re-install the newest drivers from the website, and after windows restarts, the temperature goes up to 70* - 80* , even without being in-game..

As a note, i use Speedfan to check out the whole system's temperature.. could it cause any conflicts on CCC , and may that be the cause of the overheat ? The settings on fan control are set to Automatic, on both programs.

I also tried manually increasing the fan speed in CCC , but it still overheats, and i don't really understand what happens.

I also had some problems with Skype causing overheat, or general lag. , but it seems that they fixed it, i uninstalled this one too, just to be sure.. but still...

Why is Catalyst Control Center overheating my GPU ?
