New driver (275.33) causing my GTX 295 to overheat

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just installed the new driver and I'm really glad that Nvidia finally solved the issues with Witcher 2 and 3D Vision. However I just noticed that my GTX 295 now reaches 100+C during gameplay even with the fan at 100%. Before the update it would never go above 92-93C even in the most instensive games with the fan on auto.

The obvious solution would be roll back but I don't want to lose the ability to play Witcher 2 in 3D as it looks amazing.

Anyone having similar issues? (If there are still any active GTX 295 owners on OCN...)

Edit:

Lol, idle temps went from 59/60 to 68/70...

Remove dust and reapply TIM. But since it's a 295 it may be a pain in the back to do it.

It could be that the default auto fan profile of 275.33 for GTX295 differs from previous driver version?

So, I suggest you to use Afterburner to check the fan speed at idle and at load.
It is better to setup your own fan profile instead of using the default auto.

Additionally, use a can of compressed air to clean dust accumulated in the heatsink, if you have not done so recently.

Even before the new drivers, that's really hot. I'd definitely take a look inside your computer (and graphics card) to make sure everything is working correctly. Airflow might be an issue, and you might want to (as others have said) clean the heatsink, reapply new TIM, and reseat it. Dust out any case fans you have, as well as the heatsink fan, and then check temperatures.

I'm not sure why a new driver would cause your GPU to overheat, but try a rollback and see if it fixes your problem. If so, I'd just stick with the earlier drivers until the issue is resolved, but in the meantime, I'd try test airflow and reseat that heatsink--90C+ is pretty high. It won't kill your card, no, but it's not going to prolong its life by any stretch of the imagination.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

Keep your power management at adaptive or it will overheat your cards. This same thing happened to me and it took me awhile to figure it out but that's what i did and after i changed it back no more overheating issues.

Besides what's mentioned above:

Back off the OC if you have any going on

Use v-sync!!!

I presume that this is a sandwich version? Keep in mind that the air intake is actually on the back/top/cpu side of the card, not on the front/bottom like 99% of other cards in the universe. It needs a good supply of fresh air across the back/top of the card to stay cool, IOW.
