I was playing SNOW on my R9 290X 4G from MSI and Catalyst control suite said that the GPU was at 89°c, is that too hot?
I have a corsair 100r silent with 2 case fans. Thanks :)

First time that I have looked, only recently built the computer about 3 weeks ago, bought the GPU second hand off a mate who said he never had any issues with it

i wouldn't say that 89 is too hot, but its definitely hot! try nzxt cam software to get in-game real time cpu temperatures in the corner of the screen.

Ok, try running a custom fan speed, like 60%. You can do this using MSI Afterburner. See if the temperature stays below 75 degrees this way. If not, you might need to re-apply thermal paste to the GPU.

Those are stock/reference models, except for the Asus DC overclocked maybe. MSI should stay below 75.

Yes, but the chip can handle 90+

You cant just make up temps without knowing the ambient temp.

In any normal circumstance between 18-24 degrees it should stay around those temps. I'm going to automatically assume it is if there is no mention of extensively high ambient temps, because I think the OP has ambient temps past 25 or even 30 he would have mentioned it. Harsh to downvote on it.
