I am new here and I wanna ask for assistance if I can with a recent rebuild I did. I got affected by the recent typhoon badly and at the moment I had to make do with an old motherboard an Asus P5L-VM. I increased the ram from 1gb to 4gb and added a Palit GeForce GT520 1gb DDR3 gpu. I really cannot sustain a new rig because of the economic priorities I have now. The rebuild was doing fine but I keep on seeing that the the gpu temp is 48-59degC as seen by SpeedFan and Everest 4.6. It's been a week + now and the temperature is within that range still. Sometimes the screen would go black for a second and then come back immediately. I'd say it happened a couple of times as I was surfing the net or watching video but not always.
Is that normal (temperature)? If not can you guys give me some tips to reduce the temp?
The driver is the stock driver with the box(ver126.96.36.19966 as seen in Device Manager). I tried to use the latest 306.97 WHQL but the display went berserk so I had to recover a clean system image again with the previous driver).
What may be the best driver for this video card? (OS is Windows 7 x32).
Kindly see the image of the Fan Control of the VTune that came with the gpu.
If I set it at Fixed 40% 2D to observe, how long will I have to leave it as it is? Is it advisable to just leave it at default (Dynamic 40%) or not?
There's a slider there at the bottom of the meter, what maybe a good percentage adjustment for "Fixed" and "Dynamic"..?
What fan speed is the correct for this type of gpu? I do not know what/how to set a correct value of I use a different app...
Kindly also see the temps (highligted in pink) that are recorded by HWiNFO32. Those temps were taken as I am typing this one now.
No games except "chess". Sometimes the temp shoots up to around 60-70C when I play games. Just ordinary games like StarDefender 3 / Shooting games.
Do I need to be worried? I see here that some temps are at 85C at idle..SpeedFan shows a fire icon for the temps I am getting. See image attached.
I have 2 fans blowing 'out' at the back (including the psu fan), one at the back blowing 'in' and one at the side blowing 'out'.
