Was playing some games when I saw these strange colors flashing on my screen. Went and check saw that my GPU was at 104 c! After cleaning it and making sure the drivers were up to date I tried playing again and it jumped right up to 100 again. I go and check the video card again and notice the fans are not spinning. Im not sure what else besides buy a new video card does anyone know what else I could do?

My GTX 560 fan broke a blade so I went on Amazon and bought an Arctic dual fan replacement unit. Took about an easy 90 minutes to pull the old unit out, clean up the GPU, install heat sinks (supplied in the kit) to the Video RAM, installed per directions and fire it up. Runs several C cooler all the time now and is quieter to boot.
