Hi everyone, can someone suggest me what to do with my GPU ? I checked it's temperature and shows 80 celsius Sad after I tested it with game, it reached 100-150 celsius and after some minutes PC turned off silently.. What can I do for it ? My GPU doesn't uses any cooler. It was fine some months ago and now it's annoying.. I cleaned dust but result is the same.. Any suggestions ? Thank you.

Maybe you should:
1. Find out what gfx card you have
2. Google it's overheating problems

I doubt you are the first one to experience this.

Have you tried opening your desktop and leaving it open, or install some coolers inside it?

Since i live in a hot country, i user to leave my desktop open and place a ventilator just for it. The downside is that you will have to frequently clean it.

I have a similer card (nVIDIA 9600 GT), However it is currently retired in a box, The fan started acting up then one day it got to hot and the capacitors popped on it... You might want to check your fan...

Here's hot now in my country and I think that's the main reason. Just I don't have different place to put computer in..

as I said, my GPU don't have any FANs there.. (I guess FAN is something like/or cooler, because in control panel it says I have no fans there.) I need another way..

I had same problems with Radeon 9250 128MB.
Several seconds were enough to burn a finger Sad
Also Everest and Sandra said the system was overclocked.
I recommend you posting pics of your bios if that's possible.
This time our PC is really cool: everything is "LOW".

no dude, the control panel generaly wont detect the gpu fans.

Open the pc case, and carefully check if the some wind is blowing out of the GPU.

There could be 3 problems:
1)the cooler is working bad
2)the thermal grease is dried or there is a bad contact between the gpu and the heat sink.
3)there is a lot of dust between the heat sink and the cooler.

My guess goes for the option 3.
My gt8500 after 3 years of not cleaning never, got so much dust that the air wouldn't flow normally.



My desktop pc is a pentium 4 prescot and the shit overheat really easy. So 2 times per year I nead to disassemble, put new thermal grease, clean the heat sink out of dust so its not overheat.


bye the way, th gt9500 was a very used gpu after the 8600. And for both, I never heard about the overheat problem.

Bye the way, is it really overheating or you just reading what the thermometer says?

It's burning as hell.. I'm afraid it will melt soon.. I'll take some screenshots and I'll clean it MORE better than before. I will disassemble my PC and clean every party of it. I'll post results later. Smile

you can still get it repaired by the manufacturer's factory but with some additional cash. and hopefully you can renew it.
