Windows 7 video card overheating problems?
Hello, I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 RC1 on my main machine.
When playing pc video games, specifically Left 4 Dead, the game will freeze at randoms parts. After doing alot of different fixes the main resolution was to set my video cards fan to 100% speed.
Keep in mind the game ran perfectly fine with the same settings in Vista and fan running at normal speeds.
So I am assuming this is a Windows 7 problem.
Two other people also had this same problem.
I have an ATI, the other guy has an ATI, and the third guy has a Nvidia graphics card. So its 2 ATI and 1 nvidia.
For reference the thread is here linky

shanghei, this doesn't really apply to you, but anybody with an nVidia card can use Precision from eVGA to easily set fan speed to whatever they want.
EVGA | EVGA Precision | EVGA Precision
I use it because my 8600 GTS gets way too hot on auto. Precision is simple. I like that. I just run the fan at 100%. If the card ups and dies, I'll get a better one. It's just an 8600 GTS 256MB 128 bit. Not much of a loss!
