Solved Gtx 465 Overheating? Tags: Gtx GPUs Graphics Last response: May 9, 2013 4:25 AM in Graphics & Displays Share CoolStory May 8, 2013 11:55:11 AM Hi there, I have a Gtx 465 that ive been using for 4 years now it was running normally without any high temperatures at idle. Today i came back home and later at the evening i started seeing colourfull flashes on my screen and freezing and after that auto-restarts. I downloaded GPU-Z and checked the idle temp, it swings from 55-to 71+ and stays for a while,eventually it might crash and restart windows. So what i did is turned off my pc and checked the GPU to make sure there arent any dusts on it or on the fan. I wiped some dust off and cleaned it. After that i turned on my pc and checked the temp it was 40-42 idle. After visiting a website and watching a video for about 10 minutes my pc crashed again and restarted. With 60-70+ idle temp again. This only started happening today. It was perfectly fine days-months ago. My pc specs if needed: Intel core i7 950 3.07 GHz 3X2GB of corsair dominator with 1600 mhz i think. Coolermaster pro 620Wat psu. Im on a 32 bit windows 7 at the moment. If any possible suggestions can be heard i would be thankfull. As im saving for a new video card and will buy one in about 5 months but i dont want to struggle with this one until then.
