Now yes, I know the GX2 has had a bad history with running hot, real hot. However not until now have I had computer shut
downs due to over heating. Its amazing actually, through perhaps 5 minutes of play on Champions Online (Not a graphically
intensive game in the least) I've seen temperatures of up to 103C. Now, when I look at fan speeds its usually at 72% idle with
75 or so C, on heavy load 97% at well 99-13C. Looks further into it, I noticed that my GPU 0 fan is moving around 2800-3400
RPM while the GPU 1 - 0. I'm sure there is a possiblility that the second fan has died, however I must ask is there an alternate
setting for this guy?
Any solutions/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
More about9800 running real
I don't believe so, I think that both fans are supposed to be going at the same time, and if one fan is reading zero it probably died, although I would look at it to be sure (don't stick your finger in there to check).
Take your card out and used compressed air to blow the dust out. I did this with my friends old 8800 GTS 640mb, and idle temps went from 80C to 57C.
