Hey, so here is my situation, i just bought This card from Newegg.com on the 3rd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127577

And it's constantly overheating, i applied custom fan profiles for it, the fan spurs up to 100% at 55 degrees celsius to avoid overheating, doesn't work that well, i even took off the heatsink, scraped off the old "thermal paste" - sad excuse for thermal paste if you ask me... went to my dads, borrowed some Arctic Silver, put that on, it dropped the temps a bit further but it still overheats, only when playing *ANY* 3D Game though, like Farcry, GTA IV, Etc, and i don't have it overclocked, i actually have it about 100 mhz underclocked, here's my speccy profile, any help is appreciated:

Operating System
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
CPU
AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 32nm Technology
RAM
4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 819MHz (9-11-11-29)
Motherboard
ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX (CPUSocket)
Graphics
Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
1023MB GeForce GTX 550 Ti (MSI)
 
Solution
see if a friend has a new power supply. also contact the case vendor they may be able to send you a larger power supply if you speak to a level 2 customer service rep.

How's your case temperature and airflow? These coolers blow air into your case.

Also define overheating...Does the card start artifacting? Your PC shut down? What's the operating temperature during gaming?

my PC shuts down once the card reaches 62c while i'm playing Farcry 3, i have 7 fans inside of the case, it's a minimal airflow case but it is getting good airflow, CPU is at 25C, M/B is at 33c
