My wife's GeForce GTS 250 beganextending actually hot a some days ago. Nothing to bad in nonGPUintensive games, as DCUO, but when she loads up Skyrim or SWTOR ithits into the 90s earlier extreme long. Considerably it applied toremain in the 70's under load, and 90c is a little hot for me,therefore I decided to clean it out. I have never opened a graphicscard earlier, but it was not so hard. I cleaned out ungodly amountsof dust and cat hair from the air intake of the GPU, therefore I amguessing that is what caused the overheating.
Considerably, Icleaned the old thermal compound of the GPU as well as heat sink,then keep on few new stuff. Everywhere I read told me not to keep somuch on, thus I put with barely enough to cover the GPU, even thoughwhen I originally opened it the compound was EVERYWHERE, like theyhad used gobs. Considerably, I instantly closed it back up, threw itinto the computer and booted up. I apply EVGA Precision to monitortemps, and when she went into SWTOR it shot into the 100's almostimmediately earlier I drew the plug.
Should I apply morethermal paste? does it require to sit for a although laterapplication earlier use? Is this card only trash?
