i have a dell 580s inspiron series itz a slimline desktop. recently i have installed a nvidia gt 430 graphic card. when i play games on it after sometime video signals become weak and also itz temp reaches to 88 c.is this is due to my powersupply?? if yes how can i upgrade it?? any suggestion & guidance???
one on the psu and one in the case? which way is the air flowing from the case fan if there is one.
Do you have a house fan? can you take the side off the case and point the fan at the case? if it works better like this then we can do something to improve airflow in the case. It will need you to buy at least one more fan if this is proven to be an issue.
What are your temps in the house at the moment?
for a GT430, you are probably very close on the PSU.
can you please not upload them as rar's as i do not know what the content is. can you upload them to picassa or similar where I can be more sure that they are pictures. Thanks. I'm sure you understand why.
it all comes down to what is available near you and what fits in the case, fans come is 40mm, 60mm, 80mm 120mm sizes, along the edge of he square. so see what size gaps you have in the case where you can point a fan at the heatsink (black grill thing) and order to fit that size.
not ideal, just make sure you are pointing the fan at your graphics card. or you could get a non-passively cooled card, BUT this will be a lot more expensive and might expose weaknesses in your power supply and other components.
