Alienwulf hit the nail on the head... :) Video card 1 on my R2 was overheating when I received it. It would hit 90C and throttle down killing my FPS. The problem was, It had a small drop of thermal compound on it. Replaced all my compound on both cards and CPU with aftermarket and all is good now. I don't know how old yours is but, it may need to have the thermal compound replaced on the heatsink or worst case a bad video card. Good luck!!!
