what are the rest of your system spec? have tried using different drivers on the game? also what is your cpu and gpu temperature when under load?
gts 250 igb q6600 -2.4ghz 4gb ram
well i dont really know about drivers but im using 258.96 right.what others drivers are there?
as for the temps i got 106c for cpu and i think the gpu went upto 73c
if your cpu temp indeed was as high as you said before you have to check your cpu heatsink and clean it off dust. you might have to replace the thermal paste as well if cleaning the heat sink does not relly help to cool down your cpu temp
ya well its pretty high. ill have to do something about this thanks alot
Do you mind if I come over and cook a slab of meat on that cpu
Just joking but you need to bring those temps down period. Clean the fan and the cooler while you may need to replace the compound.
ya sure we'll have a barbeque . anyway i got time to replace the compound . its already looking a lot better (40c). Thanks for the advice guys.And off now to check the gaming.......
