So it's molex? If so, plug it in to a molex connector coming from the PSU.
It's a 4 pin, not molex though, the same type as the old fan that can plug into the card. I will unplug it, and put the molex on, and connect it to the PSU.
I have WoW up, gpu useage is at 40 and its already shot upto 75oC already?!
I have closed it down, temps shot upto 80oC and it was only at about 45% useage...
I am going to see if i can re-seat it, maybe apply new paste? I'll post when i'm done.
Pic of the GPU. Paste isn't spread around it? Did I do something wrong? Too much paste?
I think i fixed it!! YAY!
The screw for the mount had extra metal on it, making the screw not go all the way down, making the heat-sink not sit on the GPU chip properly. I hope this has fixed the problem. I am now getting temps at 33-35oC
Ok, so im running WoW. Temp goes to about 60oC maybe 63 when i play it, is this normal? GPU load is at like 40-50%. I have changed the fan speed to 40% as well. Would this kill the fans? I don't even think it made a difference too it.
