430 is a very low end card. Wasnt made to handle games like that. Turn down the settings if they arent bottomed out as it is. Or replace the card. Its a crap card for gaming.

But not bad of a card for PhysX, if doing HPX setup. %)

Not much (almost no profit at all) in this particular case. GT 430 is just a very weak card for the games mentioned by you.

If you're trying to run Max Payne 3 on VooDoo II, it's quite possible. %)

yes not normal, but even if you are able to fix it, you will still get poor performance. so go and buy that 660Ti. a 670 can max out bf3,so a 660Ti is close, just tone down some settings and it will be >60

Playing single player BF3 isnt tough for many cards. Try playing multiplayer :)  I used 430 GT's in mini PC builds I do with NES cases. They performed terrible, but for a HTPC they were great, and I never saw those kinda temps. But id never try to run Far Cry 3 on it either heh. Its a very low end entry level card. Itll game, but not well.

Yeah, what Vrumor said.

U/C NES, I presume? Since there's no way you could fit anything in Classic Famicom's case unless it's Raspberry Pi, lol.

Have you cleaned it out and dusted it? have you recently changed anything in your case that would alter your air flow? replacing the TIM may also help it, like your were thinking, if its not an airflow problem.

Its not the Famicon no. Heh. Its the boxy one they sold here in the states, not sure where else it was sold. Fits in a mini ITX, whatever CPU, use Intel only now, a power supply, dvd burner, power supply and a 7750 vid card. Nice little set up.

Just like I said: NES. It was called "NES" only on American continent, and that square-box case design was implemented only in US and Canada (Hence U/C).
In all other world (except for Europe, where it was just import) it's Famicom and variations of Famicom. That square-box design was present in other countires, but it was basically a rebranded American import ("Famicom Classic", even though the most classical "NES" is the default Japanese Famicom, lol....marketing, dude).
