    Is there any way to cool graphics card ?

    My graphics card is the xfx r9 380 and it runs at 35-38c which is 94-102F. I've heard from others that my graphics card is known for running at high temperature and im wondering if that's true. Is there any way to cool it ? Also is it possible to buy a new graphics card and replace it with this one ?

    That's a good temperature. Your graphics card already has a fan on it.

    Nothing much you can do to cool it down.

    If you have any extra slots for a case fan that could help.

    Pretty much what everyone else said. My cards idle at around 90 to 100 Fahrenheit. Granted they are practically touching, but still it's about average.

    Temperature is fine. If you want you could try finding a water block that would fit on it if you're really worried, but I wouldn't worry much if I were you. Also another option is just opening your case and making sure most of your cables are managed well to get the best airflow. As for replacing, don't worry about it.

    Cards can go up to 80+ celsius. Anything higher than 90 you should take caution about. But the tempatures on Video Cards verses Processors are very different. Cards and get really more hotter and are just fine.

    But of course, with high temps comes less use.. your card staying very high temps shortens it's life. Turning up the fans and always dusting the card/computer out will make your components live longer.

    Happy gaming!

    Yes to dusting, although I'd say turn up case fans rather than component fans, as they're cheaper to replace. If the built in fans on your card die then good luck.

    Of course, but fans on your cards are there for a reason and i don't see why you should be using them to there potential. It would take quite sometime for a fan to die.

    True, but if it were me I'd be cranking up my case fans before adjusting my fan curve/ w/e you'll be using to adjust fan speeds.
