  2. Right now just typing with no video, it's cruising at 70C.
I've attached a recent ZIP from the DM log collector that includes an incident from this morning.

Is it normal for a stressed GPU to get this hot?
Let us see the system temperature in normal condition. Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Apparently you have detected the issue; now it is to determine what exactly is there behind it.

Hi all, this issue is solved.

A fan blade snapped off the video card, getting stuck in there and keeping the fan from turning. A card in the next slot had pins sticking out. At some point over the past few weeks, the pins got a hold of the fan blade. It is now running cool. It was 104C (219F) at peak and 70C (158F) at idle—now it's around 30C at idle and 70-80 when stressed with FurMark.

Resolution: see the attached zip containing a photo-essay of the fix (a Q-tip end super-glued to the video card at a strategic place to keep them apart).

Sorry for taking your time for what turned out to be a hardware failure. It started going down around the same time that MS issued that bad patch, so I assumed that was it. Next time I will check the hardware first.

Ye Gods!

No wonder you were having problems.

The important thing is that you have now identified and isolated the problem, and should be on the way to a permanent cure.

Good luck with it!

What has everyone done about KB 2993651?
This is the update from last week that replaced the withdrawn KB 2982791, which Microsoft recommended should be uninstalled. I uninstalled the original update when all the fat hit the fan the other week, although I had not had any problems with it. Microsoft advised that it could nonetheless...
