I believe the problem is my GPU overheating. Everything is sub-50 when playing games but my GPU is at about 100C. It might be that it has recently gotten hot here at about 80F avg for the last few days. Any advice on dealing with GPU overheating?
"pull the heat sink and fan. reapply thermal paste and re-seat the heat sink and fan, this time making sure it goes on right and the pins are seated properly through the mother board.......... best way to install is with the mobo out of the machine."
Go with that, if your temps are out of whack
, but did u tried GPU-Z?
Its allways best to get second opinion http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/My two cents.
