Hello MoeX,

When was the last time you cleaned your machine with canned air?


Good luck and keep us posted,

Yes clean your Video Card good. I always remove mine to clean it. The card that you are using should be OK to run this game at it's highest settings.

My GTX 660M in my laptop doesnt make that loud a noise playing the same game on external display, so would agree with others & clean fans or re paste graphics card last resort.

My guess is it needs all intakes and fans cleaned as well the CPU cooler fins and GPU cooler fins and fans.

Is it safe to open and clean? Yes if you are careful and don't touch the boards unless you are discharged of static. Is this fan condition safe? I would say that the fan (s) are trying to keep the rig cool and are working beyond hard....so is it safe? Is it too loud and would I want to track down a resolution....hell yes !
