Hey, bought a 6990 off a guy locally, and gpu1 is running hot, by that i mean 74 degrees celcius at idle, CCC, afterburner and HWMonitor all report the same temp. GPU 2 is at 41 degrees idle. and by feeling the seperate ends of the card one is much hotter than the other.

there is 4 screens that run off gpu1, but 73 at idle is too high for a 6990.

Apparently the stock cooler hasnt been taken off before, so any ideas as to what the issue might be?

Sounds normal to me. Multiple monitors make them run much hotter at idle IIRC.

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Wow, 103C is hot. Are you keeping it auto fan or custom fan speed ? Try it at max 100% fan speed and see the temps

Maybe the cooler on that one core is mounted improperly / needs a new application of paste?

That's just bizarre :\

Have you cleaned out the card since you got it?
