      75 degrees C? Sounds normal for one with a meh cooler. My 7970 has a twin frozr IV and even play a game as heavy as BF3 on ultra preset, it only gets 65c region. Sometimes 60c.

        Also, how well is the airflow for this case. If it doesnt have plenty of airflow you can have temps climb on you. One test I would do is run it with the panel off so that hot air can easily escape and see if the temps drop.

          I have 1 big 120mm side fan, 1 big 120mm upper rear fan, vent on top another, fan port on side on top the first one I mentioned no fan so vent I guess

          Sounds perfectly normal to me.  Remember your room/ambient temperature will have an effect on the temperatures, too.
