Windows 7: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5770 overheating?

09 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

I just played it extensively with it slightly overclocked (maybe 10%) and it ran around 85-86c (Metro 2033).

It just worries me that it may be overheating at times.
My Radeon HD 5850 runs about 63-65C under normal load.

I have never ran FurMark because I do not care about synthetic tests or benchmarks. I'd be concerned as it seems that they brag about the damage that their software can do.
