Hi I was just browsing online when I came across something that said my graphics card should run at about 30C idle.

Yet pc wizzard tells me that my graphics card is anywhere between 52C-60C this took me by suprise as the fan is only at 13%.

Does anyone have any idea if these figure are correct.

Thanks Alan

The card will overclock to 63 degrees so 50-60 is in the realms of possibility, cleaning the fans on a regular basis may help...

I have opened the case since posting but theres not much if any dust caught up in the fan. Thanks for your reply Alan.

If the fan is only running at 13% of its capability it maybe that the fan controller is not working properly..

possibly do you know if ati would replace/repair this

Not fully au fait with variable fan speeds but i think its the other way round, MOBO chipset controls speed if capable and not the card itself...
