HIS HD 5750 Iceq+ OVERHEATING! HELP!
My apologies if this is not the right place to post this.
I recently upgraded my Core 2 Duo machine with a new HIS HD 5750 Iceq+ 1GB GDDR5 graphics card and a Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W PSU (http://www.coolermaster.com/product....roduct_id=3738).
Reading this particular GPU's review on Guru3D, and about how good the Iceq cooler is, I decided to monitor my GPU's temperature while gaming. So I was playing Crysis 2 at max settings on 1600x900 (native) resolution, when I saw that my card was topping at 81c at 100% load! The exact same card that was reviewed on Guru3D, it reached a max 68c on full load. Also, when idle, the reviewed card remained at 36c while mine idles at 44c. After going through various forums, I have learned that 81c at full load is normal for GPUs, but given that mine has an Iceq cooler, shouldn't it be lower? Do I need to worry or I am just over-reacting? I have the latest Catalyst 11.8 drivers.

Room temperature is roughly 32-35C. Also, I have made it sure that dust is not the issue, since I regularly check my system for dust.

do u have a gaming case .. and what about air flow system in it ??
I am not sure if the Cooler Master Elite 334 is a gaming case. This is the exact case I have: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=4253. It only has a single 120mm exhaust at the back. There are no other fans.
