Mega-Overheating? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: January 8, 2013 4:12 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Kenshin72 January 8, 2013 12:04:02 AM My Specs are Intel i3-3220 | Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT | 8 GB HyperX Blu Red | MSI Z77A-G41 | Raidmax Hybrid 2 | 1 TB Western Digital HDD | Every temp test I do registers my GPU at 242c. Is this a glitch? I can't even play older games without some lag on low. Anyone have some insight? http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff58/Kenshin72/Untit... http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff58/Kenshin72/Untit...

Your machine (and quite possibly your house) would be in really bad shape if that was true. | Report abuse Reply to aicom tourist January 8, 2013 12:47:47 AM Definitely a bad sensor try gpuz http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ | Report abuse Reply to tourist Kenshin72 January 8, 2013 1:25:29 AM http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/13/01/07/985.png Same thing. | Report abuse Reply to Kenshin72 tourist January 8, 2013 4:00:17 AM Have you checked the voltage on the p/s. ? a second card to test ?
