i thought that too, i am not sure what a good temp for my card is, i installed everest and it says the temp is 65C idle and at the time it started messing up it hit 75C. the fan is running properly. i hav tested it with two games and both do it. air flow is good.
yeah tell me about it, i updated the drivers and still have the problem, it is an older game and was wondering if the drivers could be too new. i am going to try and use older drivers. what is a good temp for my card.
well i did a search about the card and temps for it, on nvidia's forum someone had said that they were having issues at 75C and that seems to be the same temp i hit when the artifacts start, i took my card out and cleaned the fan, not too dirty, and applied new thermal paste. the idol temp right now is 45C, haven't had a chance to play yet. will post to let you know the results.
