No, I did not try to set the fan speed. Actually just googled how to do that and I did not have "Preferences" in nVidia Control Panel where it said the fan speed can be set.
i think you need programs like msi afterburner or evga precision to set your fan speed

I just checked graphics temperature with GPU-Z and while playing a game it was 90+"C and about 50"C when not playing. Is this normal?

I would say not, since it's not a high end video card. try increasing the fan speed with msi afterburner or evga precision. I had a GT 220 but didn't use gpu z to check the temperatures.

Guys, I have another problem with this card.

Now I am having one side open of the PC and the temperature of the graphics is 50-65C but sometimes I get this message and my display stops working for a second.




I am guessing the graphics card is faulty or something.

That may be a good guess.

See this post: Screen Goes Blank to read up on the "Display driver stopped...."

The video card costs the most, so it's listed last.
