Hi, my rig is an old tech C2D. I am playing Crysis 2 at "Gaming spec" and the GPU temp while playing
ranges from 90-100C @ 100 fan speed. I want to know if it's safe to continue playing or it will melt my GPU.
Should I upgrade my GPU so that I can play Crysis 2 less than 90c?
Not safe at all, please make sure you clean out your case and make sure your case has some good air flow as well.
Please also clean the card and if you are able to clean the card and remove the heatsink, please re-apply some fresh thermal grease.
My choice will be MX-4, AS5 or IC diamond..
Now if you can spend the extra dollar for a new GPU card that would be good but the card can run Crysis 2
If you like I would go for a 560Ti or 550Ti
