I'm planning to buy a Sapphire Radeon R9 270 to install to my system. This is the system I own:
APU: AMD A8 6600k @ 3.9GHz
Motherboard: ASRock FM2A55M-VG3+
RAM: 8 GB PC1333
PSU: Corsair TX550M
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB
CPU Fan: ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa
I have been playing Batman Arkham Asylum @720p, most of details on high and I've noticed my temperatures measured with Speedfan go up to 57º C and usually idles around 32ºC
My case is well cooled, are these normal temps? Would I reduce my CPU temps after installing a discrete videocard and disabling the graphics on the APU?
Thanks for your answers in advance.
