Just bought used graphics card, gets real hot quickly

Is it a single fan XFX card like this?

I had a 6870 from XFX with a similar cooler and the thing was complete garbage.
It was very loud and didn't do a very good job keeping the card cool.
Even still, it didn't get as hot while playing games as what you are seeing, TC.

I replaced the stock cooler with this and it made a dramatic difference in noise and temps.
Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

Outing myself as a dummy here cards have thermal paste too?

Yes, under the heatsink and the fan.

Ahh thanks. This is the first time I've heard of it. Good to know.
