  1. Hi, I recentrly build my new system, and I have x2 HD 5770 for CrossFired, And my temp reading of a single card are getting all diferent based on the software I use, For Example..

    GPUZ said that my cards are around 78c - 85c, and even 92 one time, after 6 minutes on stability test with Stock MHz and the fan 95%.

    Furmark Says that my cards are around 65c - 72c, fan 95%

    MSI afterburner says the same as furmark (Never simultaneouly, I always use them separate).

    The catalyst always says the same of the overdrive as they both are AMD's.

    I have not tested any other programs, but im getting worried about the temp reading because if GPUZ is the one that is saying the truth I will basically burn the cards if I put them together.

    Wich one would you trust the most for the temp reading.?
