Over High Temperatures, should this have happened?
« on: February 05, 2014, 11:28:49 AM »
Hi.  My first post, hope I am not being rude asking for help straight up.

I ran the Burn-In Benchmark 1920x1080 15 min for the first time to see if my system was okay, but had to stop it after less than 5 minutes because my GPU was being reported at 101 degrees C, and still climbing.  When I stopped it, the GPU was at 99% load and the fan was at 100%.  (system specs below).
I let everything cool down and ran the Benchmark Preset 1080 test.  Even in that, my GPU got to 88 degrees C by the end of it, again still climbing.  Again, the CPU was at 99% and the fan at 100%.

I was worried if I let the test continue I would fry my GPU.   My system is not overclocked at all.

Is this normal or do I have a major problem I need to look at?

My system specs:
I7-4820 with normal "out of the box" fan cooling
AsRock X79 Extreme6 MB
2 x 8Gb Patriot Viper 1866Mhz RAM
2 x ASUS Radeon HD 7870 CUII GPU in Crossfire
Thermaltake TR2 800W PSU
Fractal Design Define R4 case with 5 x 140mm fans (2 at front as intake, 2 at top as intake, 1 at rear as exhaust)
240Gb SSD (boot)
4 x 2Tb HDD (storage)
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I am hoping someone can advise please.
