I guess you have never replaced a video card fan before then, if it stops working completely during a heavy load, goodbye card as well.

Just fair warning.... ...and thus the life of the card lasting as long as the fan....

Good advice, but yes I have. I don't recommend it for just anybody though. I only did it in an old rig, just to do it.

It is actually pretty easy, look at this example

I agree on not running a GPU 100%. I only trurn it up when it`s gonna get hot, not to mention the noise.

@computergeekguy, If you have to run your card at 100% to keep it at around say 110F, then something is wrong, is your case well ventilated ?

Agreed, 100% fan speed as required norm is a red flag of trouble, and better to figure it out ASAP then potentially break multiple expensive components down the road, and would certainly stop all overclocking at that point.

I'd be checking ALL case fans for one gone dead, had one in back recently start/stopping over and over, I could hear it doing it over the other fans and glad I looked, because that fan is especially critical for removal of heat and a reasonable replacement can be had for $10.

Dirty video card fans/heatsinks, worn out thermal paste, and even a bad PSU, are other suspects.

Sorry i haven't replied back in a while.

I must admit i oc every now and then but not all the time. If im going to just be browsing the internet i let the fans do what they want.

It is when i want to push my comp that i crank the speed to 100.

I play games in 3d at full 1080p on a 46" screen with AA so it tends to get a little hot.

And in some cases such as video conversion i oc my cpu to 3.4 from 2.8 and then run my cpu at 100%

So yes my comp gets hot so i crank up the fans. As for case fans i got a big 250mm on the side.

At idle my comp runs 35c (94f) cpu 40c (110f) with normal fans
