Video Card Over Heating
To start, this is my first post here, so hello everyone.
Video Card: GeForce 6600GT 128meg AGP
I have had this card for about a year with no problems. But For the last month or so I started noticing artifacts when I was gaming, in which I imediatly started up Riva Tuner to log my cards temp and found that during play, my card was reaching 90 degree C. I am not overclocking it and this has never been a problem before. I checked that my fans where working properly and cleaned all the dust out of my pc, but it is still getting up there to about 80 degrees on low setting when playing. Granted I do not have anything but the fans that came standard in the pc when I bought it, but I'm wondering why now its happening. The other day my computer froze completely, for the first time ever. CPU: P4 2.8ghz, XP Home, 1.5 gig ram.
Do you think that my card is going or is it something else? ie should I upgrade/add another cooling fan.
