Graphics card: Overheat - change fan speed - normal heat.

Well, I did a post around a month ago about similar situation. Then it didn't actually help whether I changed fan rotation or so, because it was practically cornered...

Almost similar situation has resurfaced:

When I start a game, it's almost 90% sure it will go around 95-100ºC. This is usual even with 100% fan speed. But when I change it even with 1%, it will return to somewhat normal temperatures in gaming time such as 60-70ºC.

Automated fan speed does not help, it climbs its way to 100% and is usually left with the ordinary 100ºC. If I change fan speed when GPU is at 60-70ºC, it will return to 95-100ºC.

Programs used to monitor heat:

HWMonitor
GPU Tweak/Monitor

  1. Just create a custom fan profile, for example, when the gpu is at 60C you can make it run at 70% fan speed, and when at 70C you can make it run at 80%.

    also, you can dust your computer or have an expert( if you dont know how to do it) change your thermal paste.

    you can create a custom fan profile with Evga precision x, if you have an nvidia gpu.(these are the supported cards for evga precision: GeForce GTX TITAN, 700, 600, 500, 400, or 200 series graphics card)
  2. Never use more than one program to do monitoring ..... Id suggest you run OCCT GPU test alone with no monitoring software.

    Your CPU fan is heavily damaged...the resistor is worn out, because certain electricity frequencies move through the resistor slower due to aging of material. The only fix for this is to replace the fan completely.
