so basically my graphics card seem to be over heating when i play some games and either crashes the game or throws loads of weird squares on my screen i use a program called speed fan to see the temp and fan speed it always says that it has 0rpm for gpu but the fans are running when i look at them and it overheats at like 50C which i dont think is right.

Ive checked the card and all seems fine nothing blocking the fans and everything is connected can someone please help i have no idea how to fix it

My Specs

Cpu: AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor 4 GHZ
Ram: 16gb
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64bit
Gpu: GeForce GTX 660 Ti

50°C is nothing for a GPU... How long do you play before it crashes? Could it be that your processor overheats/is unstable?

Again, 50°C is anything but overheating. You OC anything? My previous GPU was a passive design and would reach more than 85°C while gaming...
