Nvidia says the limit for this GPU is 105°C and it heated up to 99 yesterday and up to ~90 today. So it could work maybe. However, the case was open during these tests... On the other hand, I guess that the fan is broken for a few weeks already...
Thanks for the info that heatsinks come with a fan.
A replacement card is not an option here since it is an office computer at work. I am just seeking a cheap solution after I called the IT department today and they have written down "pen in graphics card broken" after I told her three times "FAN of the ..."
But why do Nvidia then say "max. temperature = 105C" on their website for that GPU?
Could I also just mount another fan into the existing heatsink instead of replacing the whole heatsink?
Yes, they have to replace it, but they are famously incompetent and I don't want to be without a working computer for too long. We are running Linux here and at some point we had a software problem and called them: "Go to the start bar, please", "This is Linux, there is no start bar." --> "I don't know what to do then "
