I know this is an ancient card but i am going to replace it soon.Few days back i was hearing some weird noise from gpu fan.When i removed the fan from gpu board to clean it i accidentally swiped the liquid coolant on its chip while installing it back.Now after 5minutes of starting pc GPUz shows temp.of 49°C of gpu at 0%load.I never checked Gpu temp. before coolant being swiped off.
Now my question is, is it due to absence of coolant that there is such high temp.or it is normal for this card?????
This is still a good backup card for motherboards which dont have support for iGPU.
