Hello everyone,

So I am coming to you guys with a question. I was wondering why my graphics card gets so hot when I play BF4. I noticed it was at 74C when I was playing on High Settings and it was pretty much the same when I lowered it to medium. I thought lowering it would help but this is not the case.

The card I am running:

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB

Is there a way to cool it down or something I am missing? I would greatly appreciate a response back with feedback and suggestions!

Thanks,

That is well within the normal range of temps you would expect. This is not a problem.

That is well under the limit. Nothing to worry about

Oh awesome. Thanks for the responses. I never really monitored the temp of my card before and I have only seen CPU temps. This is why I was so alarmed. Also, the game crashed when I was playing saying the the GPU stopped working so I was afraid it got too hot but it must have been something else. Thanks again for the answers!

Well it could also be the GDDR overheating. I have had that happen on a few cards. Unfortunately very few cards have the MEMIO temp sensor to let you know that this is the problem.

Is there a way to tell if that is what the problem is? how can you find out if you have that sensor?

gputool will report it if it is present. Otherwise try underclocking the ram or a more extreme fan ramp...
