83c seems to be normal with such card because you pushed your settings on max. Put the game settings on low and the card will run more cooler.

Try running it with vsync on. You don't need more than 60fps on your monitor anyway. It may help the temps.

It limits the game to 60FPS which is the most your monitor can refresh at anyway.

You will be able to turn it on and off in the games graphics settings.

Dam, nothings ever simple is it lol.

Just try them one at a time and see what FPS you get on each I guess. There is no guarantee it will lower temps but usually less FPS on a GPU mean less work for it so it may lower them a bit.

It is a UBI tittle and a console port as well, not as unfinished as other UBI tittles but a UBI game nonetheless. Being said that, I would almost wage good money that lowering the settings to medium will yield little to no changes to the video quality and the temps might drop more to your liking. What I am trying to say is, spend some time testing different options, this is not one of those game where you need to have everything set a max to notice big differences.

I don't normally check the temps while I play my games but I will see if I can do that when I get home... do you feel it while exploring as well as when on a firefight?

It's completely normal, the 7970 isn't designed to max out games like Far Cry 3. Lower the settings unless you want to drastically reduce the life of the card.
