Windows 7: GPU Overheating.

GPU Overheating.

So i just got upgrade,new mobo,new cpu,a used memory and my old graphic card to build a system ill play games on.

Heres a list of my new components :

m5a97 r2.0
Phenom II 965
Kingston HyperX 2x2gb 1600mhz

Your prob wondering whats the prob,well i have this 5670 that was in my old rig before this one(ddr2 2gb,random asus budget mobo,athlon 2 240),and it was working wonderfull,but as soon ive installed new components it started overheating and shutting down my PC.

Ive opened the card,cleaned it,replaced old paste,still nothing.

I really have no idea whats going on...atm i have no cash for new gpu so thats out of question...

Now the thing is i can start the pc,use browser and stuff like that,but as soon i enter games my gpu gets at 70 degrees and pc shuts down.

The only way i can play something is to drop down all game settings to low and up the cooler speed on my GPU via Catalyst at like 80%,but it gives me headache from all the noise...

Does anyone have any solution / trick / tip?

Ps my warranty is gone like half year ago...

You said you opened up your GPU to clean it and you replaced the paste right..?
How many times have you completely dissembled your GPU?

Did you by any chance open it up for the first time before you installed it in the new system?

Yes but that was like year ago,when i was cleaning it....Its a very small GPU with small heatsink,if dirt gets inside theres no flow of air and thats not good...

Tho GPU did work well after i cleaned it for first time...

IS there any chanse that PCI-E 3.0 might affect my GPU overheating?

Coz on my old mobo i had 2.0 and i had no problems with it!

Heres a pic of GPU im talking about,its low end budget card...

No. PCI-E3 will not cause overheating. It's more of a bandwidth thing, not so much power.
My bet is that in one of your GPU upkeep sessions you reduced it's thermal efficiency somehow and it degraded over the years.

When cleaning a GPU and you don't know what you are doing, some compressed air into the heatsink and fan will work just fine.
