Graphic card getting REALLY HOT with Processor overclock

I overclocked my processor few days ago, it was my first overclock, i overclocked my i7 920 D0 @ 3.4 Ghz, I think my graphic card overclocked with my processor?
i dont know why but my graphic card is really hot, i dont know the temp but when it touch it its really hot i think it'll burn or something.
I got a crappy nvidia Geforce9400GT 1 GB, how do i fix this?
Im running my i7 920 @ 1.132V or something could someone tell me what to do =/

  1. Download an use speed fan to "know" the temperature of your CPU and GPU.
  2. Yeah, I hate that too when you OC your processor and your vid card gets real hot.

    I just keep a big glass of water nearby and if I see ANY smoke I just throw the water on it and that takes care of it. :lol:

    Do you know any good program to know the graphic card temp?

    Ohhh, really hot. What case do you have?, How many fans?
  12. @saint

    OH, I get it, your here for some meaningless point system, sorry to here that.

    I just stop by to have some fun and occasionally help out a person or two. You can check out my previous posts to confirm the truth, both good and bad. Lighten up you'll live longer, it's a proven fact.

  14. ipunket, the max for your card is 105c, but if it is idling at 78c that isn't very good.

    You can download EVGA Precision to manually adjust the fan to lower your temperatures. It's a little easier than Speedfan to use. I have to crank my 8800GT fan to 100% when folding to keep it about 80c, yeah my CM case has bad airflow.

    Heres a pic of my PC
    ttp://i45.tinypic.com/10egg38.jpg

    I put 2 fans with glue lol :x

    Btw it says 80C Now when im playing PCSX2, it isnt cuz of the PCIE voltage? idk whys it getting so hot ;x
  16. ^+1, is a good option. Usually the nVidia's chipset cards keep the fan at 40% that isn't good for the usual ambient. I use my GTX260 with the fan at 60% and the temperature keeps on 43c.

    I am VERY sorry for giving you a hard time, it will stop right now, I didn't know that English was a second language for you.

    I apologize for any and all statements, sorry.

    Ohh, you have a V8 from coolermaster. Try the option that RJR said, and also make you sure that you GPU have enough space for the airflow.

    The fan is enough, how i said, usually is at 40%. Try to rise till 60% and you can see a good temperature on your GPU.

    P.D. Try to get a better GPU for your i7-920.

    Yes, is a second language and i don't write very well.... :(
  21. k last questions n im done here :D Thx alot
    Which NVIDIA do u suggest me for my i7 920? I need a cheap one :x
    How do i config the fan speed? 60%? 80%?, whats the normal temp?
    As you can see in the pic, i got a fan close to the graphic card throwing the hot air out of the case

    Edit: the EVGA program wont letme change the fan speed and it says "75" Speed
  22. gtx 260

    nVidia. I have a GTX260. Or an ATI HD 5770 both are in the $150-$200 price range.

    For the EVGA program, look for the option that say "automatic" and click in the button. This program is good, but i prefer RivaTuner.

    I use the fan at 60% on idle and 100% in load.
