Hello mates, :bounce: 

I have a XFX GeForece GT-240 1GB gfx card, I purchased it like two yrs ago, now the problem is when I play games, the temperature gets upto 100C or more, this makes the games lag and stutter... also MY CPU temperature gets upto 70C+

I have a core i7 860 on a DH55TC motherboard with stock cooler and heatsink, and no extra fan to my case.

Things were not the same when my PC was new. I tried cleaning the heatsink of GPU and applying new thermal paste with no luck... can you guys help me? :cry: 

Is this a CPU problem or of my GPU?

it's your GPU, maybe your fan's getting old? your CPU temp is normal for a case with bad air-flow

XFX should have life-time warranty... have you thought about calling them?

Clean the card one more time and make sure that there is absolutely no dust left in the cooler and fan.

Any reason why you can't add in a cheap intake and outake fan to bring things down a bit?

Sure I can add... is that supposed to solve my problem completely? what else I can do to keep the GPU temp down?

I again removed the fan last night and made sure that there is no dust in the fan and heatsink either... still no luck :bounce:

Time to get a better cooler, I know that a zalman vf900 will work on that card with good results but sadly they are not cheap. Getting a new cooler is a good investment because you can keep using them for years on different cards.

I just found out that the fan on my graphics card is very jammed, not rotating freely, thats the cause of overheating... what to do now?

that is most definitely the cause of overheating. you need to get a new fan to replace it. I think it's likely your fan has just reached the end of its lifespan

Would his warranty not cover it?

with EVGA it really should... most likely they'll just send hom a similar performing card sitting in their warehouse. he might even get a small upgrade lol
