Should be fine..
Apologies for getting back to you sooner..Update: So I think it was my gpu that kept failing and causing my games to not work properly. Since changing the fan speed to 100% using openhardwaremonitor helped. My gpu usage was 100% in both games and my gpu temps were around 90 degrees but changing the fan speed got temps down to 70 and I don't have any errors. But the fans make a lot of noise at 100% and it doesn't sound too good in there.
I will have to get that checked out then. I was running World Of Tanks on ULTRA (the highest) settings, but it was fine when I got the computer built back in december.Apologies for getting back to you sooner..
Running the fans at 100% won't hurt it but as you say it does get loud.
Have the temps only recently become an issue? The reason i ask is because I wonder whats changed.
It might be the case that the thermal paste on the gpu has dried up but let me know about the above please.
Well the be quiet dark rock pro 4 doesn't really fit in the case. So the people there had to install it upside down. But they said it shouldn't affect air flow. They charged me 40€ just to install the cooler...Hmm... What is the air flow in your case like?
It's always desirable to have a good airflow and if you have fans at the front pulling air in and fans extracting out of the back or top of the case then even better.
If you don't have any fans at all then depending on your case design it's quite easy to add some.
Do you know what actual case you have and could you post if you have any fans pulling clean air in and extracting hot air out.
Yup this is another way of dropping the temps or stress your card is recieving and won't harm the card at all.Update: I saw a tutorial where the person turned the gpu clock to -200. That's a bit too low I think so I turned it to -20 but so far it hasn't crashed. I'll play for +- an hour. If it hasn't crashed maybe that could've solved it?
