My System Specs are as follows

CPU FX 6300

RAM 8GB Dual-Channel

Motherboard Gigabyte 970A

GPU R9 270x 2GB oc Editon

and all the other stuff like storage

 

And this is my problem my GPU gets really hot while playing WoT which is really frustrating because I love WoT the maximum tempreture of the R9 270x is 70c and what makes it go to that, i would say i have efficient cooling and it usally on every other game runs a 60c with some exceptions such as star wars battlefront that can make it get hot, my GPU can handle Ultra on it but the temps get to hot so i play at high, WoT though i have to run at medium with everything turned down (makes graghics looks bad) and it still gets to 68c when i played WoT for first time on my new PC i set it to Ultra and it got to 76c degrees in about 5 minutes, is this just an AMD thing or the game engine there useing make WoT run very hot, when they use the Hovok engine will this fix the overheating? I havnt seen a forum post on overheating, so i think this is the first? so please say what graghics card your useing and if WoT makes it really hot.

 

P.S if you would like to see a benchmark of the R9 270x or planning on buying one here's a link to my YouTube channel, i am do not wish to self promote i just want to show people benchmarks if there intrested :)

Edit: The link wont work for some reason on forums just search in YouTube tiger besige quickbuild i know its stupid but that video comes up easily then click on my channel from that, sorry for the inconvenience :)

Straight after a game,

How much room is there inside your computer, & do you have any case fans?

Also are the cables tied back, or do they just hang anywhere?

 A larger case allows better air flow, as does tying the cables out of the way.

My case has a lot of mesh openings to allow air to circulate, plus extra fans to aid

airflow.

No multicore support so your AMD chip has core 1 working overtime while having a worse single core performance then intel and then some pretty poor optimisation and you are set for a hot time

I don't consider 76 C for a GPU to be hot.

My R9 280X ran at 85C when I first upgraded my monitor to a 1440p and tried to run at max settings. I actually played like that for a week or so but ended up lowering the settings to get better temps and a smooth 60fps. Lowering anti-aliasing (had the biggest immediate effect on GPU temps) and just a few other settings got my fps to a solid 60 with vsync on and now it runs at around 76-78C which is a lot quieter and just fine in my opinion. As a general rule of thumb in my book anything below 80 is all fine and dandy. You're not going to fry the card unless you reach near 100C (and even then it's probably not going to just drop dead instantly), but running at 80-85+ for hours on end will shorten the life span of the GPU.

Just set your GPU fans at a higher speed. Or your GPU/ram clock at a lower speed. You can make profiles within the driver, use that. I have a quiet setting as AMD/ATI are still stupid enough to clock the GPU too low at desktop setting, resulting in clicks and pops (upped clock from 300 to 500, problem solved), a standard setting for 3D application which is the original one + 10% fan speed, and an "all out" setting with the max clock the system can do, and fan duty at 70% ( going from 70 to 100 only produce more noise on my system).

 

Since you have a 290x, you can really lower the standard 3D application GPU speed without hurting performance.

my G3258/R9 380 4gb combo runs WoT at under 60° - the GPU fans never go up to full speed, in the garage they go off, with a steady 65-70fps (the processor doesn't get above 40° - without OCing it though) all in a mini itx case, one 200mm front fan and 2 80mm back fans and a cnps8900 quiet cpu fan

I have all the places available to put fans in with 120mm fans my case is quite big (mid tower) and has quite neat cable managment, so im really not sure, most other games i play dont get that hot
