Crane July 29, 2012 at 18:22:42 Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium x64, 6.00
My GPU is at about 86C when just web browsing. My games start a 60+FPS, 5 mins. after, It goes down to 1 FPS. Then it repeats. I have a Geforce 9800 GT. I have 6 GB of Ram. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
I meant to put GPU in the title sorry. All of my other temps are about 40-45C when just web browsing. I have 1 case cooling fan. All of my fans are at 100%. I did not mess with the fan or the heatsink on the card. I have dusted it already hoping that would fix it. And it didn't.
Make sure that your rear fan is set to exhaust the hot air out of your case. Make sure air intake vents in the front are not blocked with dust. Make sure that your GPU heat sink is not clogged with dust. Visually make sure that your GPU fan is turning. Make sure that the GPU heat sink does not move when gently twisting it. Consider replacing your rear case fan with a model with a higher CFM model and dual ball bearings (look for high CFM but low Db).
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
