Perhaps you can replace the fan on that card. See if you can remove the fan from the card; then get the part number, etc., on the fan, to try to purchase the same fan from Amazon, Ebay, etc. You should be able to replace the fan on the card. But if you can't, you need to get another card. If you don't, the card will burn up, and overheat the computer in the process.

That one graphics cards also heated up more fast then the others.

What should i do we are not hardware expert and computer technician are very expensive.
Well, this old tech can tell you exactly what to do!

I've had several graphics cards that I really like, except that the little cooling fans are really CHEAP and have a tendency to get noisy and even just lock up in time. And the OEM (replacement) fans are usually not easy to find.

I just take out the graphics card, remove the fan, and re-oil the main bearing, which is usually under a little stick-on label on the back of the fan. Don't remove the label, just poke a tiny little hole in it and inject a drop of high quality machine oil. A pocket oiler with a needle tip is ideal.

I have a needle point oiler that I've used, for years, just for the purpose of re-oiling fans, and I've re-oiled hundreds of them. Not only GPU cooling fans, but case fans, PSU fans, and CPU fans as well. Almost all small fans in computers can be cleaned, re-oiled and put back into service, with the only expense being a few minutes of your time.

In the few instances when the fan is totally frozen up, I just remove it and attach another small fan right over the GPU heatsink. When I can't use screws to mount the new fan, I've used HOT GLUE, to attach it.
( have a great picture of an added fan on top of a GPU heatsink, but this @#%^& forum software won't let me post it, from my computer )

Most things are Do'able if you just get creative.

Cheers Mate!

Great information, TechnoMage!

Have you ever seen a case where a card got so hot that it melted the hot glue?
