Hello. As the title says, i have some HUGE problems with overheating. My GPU reaches 92° C in a 20° C environment while playing crysis 3 for example. I have 3 fans in my case, one frontal and one on the side for intake and one in thr rear for exhaust. My CPU temp never passed 35° C with stock cooler.

This is my system:
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 960T Black Edition 3.0GHz
GPU - MSI GeForce GTX 550 Ti OC 1GB DDR5 192-bit
Power unit - Enermax NAXN 450W
Motherboard - ASRock 870iCafe R2.0
Hard disk - Western Digital 500GB SATA-III 7200rpm 16MB Caviar Blue KX
Memory - KingMax 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
Case - Inter-Tech Aircraft

Here is one screenshot with the temp.

:welcome: alexacos

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

The readings that you are getting are to be expected when gaming and both are below the maximum safe temps.
Video card is 100C http://www.geforce.c.../specifications
CPU is 62C http://www.cpu-world... (HDZ955FBGIBOX).html

You could try using MSI Afterburner to lower the temps http://event.msi.com...er/download.htm

You say that i should not be worry at all about that temperature? I do have afterburner but idk how to lower the temp. By that you mean lowering the Memory clock and the core clock? I am no hardweare expert, thats why i am asking ppl that really know this aspect.

I actually said "The readings that you are getting are to be expected when gaming and both are below the maximum safe temps."
Constant high temps are bad for hardware but your idle temps are fine,

See page 14. 4.7 to manually configure your fan speed http://event.msi.com...User Manual.pdf
