Past few days my GPU has been overheating for some reason, really have no idea why. In Furmark I get around to 111C then my PC just loses all display until I have to hard reboot.
I idle at around 50C
Obviously my card is overheating,
Think a heatsink died? Airflow is just fine, my case is a big beast and all the fans are running.
Any ideas on fixes other than just getting a new card? One thing im confused about is, until my PC shuts off, the games look great. It just dies. So the card is causing the PC to just lose display due to heat I assume?
Screen goes black, computer and video card keeps running (I can hear the fans, they're maxed) then I have to hard reboot.
