Hey g2g.

GFX = Club3D 7950GT 512MB, http://www.hardware..../7950gt_550.jpg

Well, this seams like a very strange issue i can't solve. My gfx's temps is extremely high.

To show it wasn't because it had been into a game or something for 4 years, I had just booted up my computer ~10 min. before i read the temps. I did only start speedfan and firefox. And i booted after a night sleep, around 7 hours.

as you can see, it shows 59 C.

I have been having this problem for 2-3 months, and in the beginning it did only show arround the 50 C at boot.
I got a new hd at christmas, which i use, so i doubt it is virus/spyware.

so yea... I cleaned some invisible (:)) dust from the fan... And now it's down to 39 again lol.

It just seams ridiculious that some dust can higher the temp from 39 to 59... So for now on i'm going to clean my computer more often :)

yea sometimes it doesnt take much dust to cause some problems. I would about once a month, or every couple months depending on how dusty it is where ur computer is, just clean out ur whole computer with a can of air to get the dust out.
