Over Heating Problems

So i have a Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT, and the problem is as follows, it over heats like crazy, all because the fan init doesnt start, to preventing it from melting or something i have to start it manually.

Few days ago i stumbled on SpeedFan, i would start the fan manually and the fan would keep on spinning, and i could run games no problem, but now for some reason it isnt happenin anymore, i mean i have nearly nothing open ( browser, msn and speed fan and the GPU is hittin 75C which is freaking ridiculous.


If anyone knows anyway i could get the fan to work would be awesome.


Thanks very much

  1. Replace it with an aftermarket HSF, the VF900 from Zalman works well.
  2. well was wondering if there was any chance, of fixing it cuz, it does spin for a while when i start it manually
  3. You could try stripping it down a re-greasing the bearings.
  4. And if you are stripping it down anyway, go ahead and reapply thermal grease and heat sinks on the gpu. Or, you can plunk down the $59.00 (after rebate) for a new 9800GT from tigerdirect.
