My GPU is showing higher than normal temps idle and under load.

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.

Room temperature increase
Thermal paste was inefficiently applied
Bad thermal paste was applied
Change of fan profiles

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.
