Hello, my temps on speed fan program shows my gpu is getting hot. my cpu stays cool until enough heat is created then it start getting a little hot. but that is when its not being used with my game guild wars 2.when i play the game, the gpu core heats up fast then after a little time then cpu will start to heat up. my core have gone up to 108c when playing the game and my cpu goes to about 60c. I replaced the card with xfx raidon 7870. and no change. i still get the same temps. my cpu is a I7 3770k but i did not over clock it. my gpu is xfx 7870 but not over clocked. 32 gig corair vengence ram ocz 240 gig ss drive. any thoughts on what maybe the broblem?. oh and my cpu is liquid cooled cosair.

what power supply? also, what case are you using, and what are you using for cooling? (include case fans and the heatsink on the CPU)

aaaah you said the PSU in earlier post. my bad. How do you have your fans situated? Ideally you want any bottom/front fans being intake, and any top/rear fans being exhaust. Side fans, you can play with to see which works better I normally have them as intake if their sitting over any hot running video cards, and XFX cards do tend to run hot. the max temp for your CPU is 67 C, so as long as you dont go over that you should be fine, though with a 750 watt PSU, single video card and liquid cooling, it shouldnt even be hitting 60. What kind of thermal paste are you using? And what specific case-theres like a half dozen carbide models.

yes the 2 fronts and the 1 side are intake. and the 1 back and 2 tops are exhaust. the paste is what came on the new xfx video card. the cpu is not the problem its the gpu that heats up then after a while the cpu will get a little hoter because the cpu is above the gpu. oh the case is corsair 500R.

yes, well your CPU shouldnt be hitting 60 under load, either. Somethings causing a major overheat-and being the video cards the hottest, its likely the heat source, but may/may not be the original problem. Normally, in circumstances like this I would suspect an underpowered power supply, but since your only running one video card I see nothing that would strain your PSU unless it is failing.  Do you happen to have an extra power supply laying around you can swap out fast to test it?

unfortunatly no. Though, just for curiousity, run it up under load and put your hand behind the PSU exhaust-does it feel extra hot to you? as hot as the video card exhaust?

Do you have any other cards plugged in directly below the graphics card? If so then move it at least 1 more slot down. Reason being it can block airflow to the graphics card making it run hotter.
