I have a GTX 580 and whenever I use it it works smoothly then the fan kicks at 100% and shuts my PC off. I have also tried my GTX 650 and it works fine and will not shut my PC down. Is there any fix?

Seems either it is a faulty card or you have overclocked it far too much and broken it

It has never been overclocked

I haven't checked the temps, so it's probably just overheating? I wasn't so sure if it being overheated would shut down the computer

Then it sounds like a faulty card. The fan sounds like it has been damaged.

I'll be sure to do that, and it's good knowing that it isn't faulty
