So I recently bought a asus radeon hd 7850 and it is saying when I play far cry 3 that it was reaching 42-44 degrees celcius which is like 100-105 farenheit. Is this too high and if so is there something I can do to help?
thanks for your advice as always.

I was wondering because I had my computer lock up with a black screen and lines through it while playing far cry 3 twice now. This never has never happened anywhere except on the game and I don't know if its the graphics card which is brand new. I have to hard restart when it happens.

Far Cry 3 is a game that will tax your GPU, But 42-44 degrees is VERY low for a GPU running a load. Try Updating The Catalyst Control Center, due to the fact that Far Cry 3 is a very new game and it may have some bugs that will be fixed by newer graphic drivers.

Yeah another thing is that I tried downloading the latest Catalyst drivers and right as it tries to finish installing it crashes my computer and gives me a blue screen. I have tried like 5 times with the same result any ideas why?

My temps on the CPU and GPU are pretty low 40-50 during game play. But the only game I have tried besides far cry 3 is League of legends and it never has crashed yet.
