Using HWMonitor, by the way. Also, I have an MSI Twin Frozr III 7850 2GB. Everything is stock settings.

My idle temps for my graphics card used to be around 30-32 degrees Celsius, and now they're 35-40 degrees Celsius...not too bad, I know. Also, I was playing Saint's Row 3 for a while and noticed my temps getting up to 67 degrees Celsius. I've never had my GPU go above 55-57 degrees Celsius, so what could be causing the extra 10 degree increase?

Thanks in advance for any and all advice!

Could be dust, I just cleaned the heatsink of my video card and is measuring 8 less than before.

That temp is fine... Start to worry when it hits 90c.

How long have you noticed the difference for? Was it gradual or just a sudden increase?

I just noticed it today. When I was playing games yesterday I don't think it got above 60 degrees Celsius. I was playing a lot of Saint's Row 3 yesterday too.

I never said the temps I'm experiencing are hot.

I'm just wondering why the sudden increase in temps, when my GPU has never gone above 57 degrees Celsius for the 6 months I've owned it.
