It isn't. Most likely, you have to clean it out. What OS are you running?

First of all, get CCleaner, and run that, gets rid of temp files and a lot of other junk. Disregard the registry cleaner.

Did you run a virus and/or spyware check lately? Get Malwarebytes and run that.

Go to the run command, type in msconfig, and go to the startup tab. Unless you know what the program is and need it, keep it checked. All the others, uncheck. You can always re-enable them.

I'd also be inclined to suspect there'd be a nice build up of dust in there that may be overheating it.

The card can take Directx11. That is not the issue.

Do my suggestions above.
