HD 6570 overheating

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Today i got HD 6570 but the problem is that it is passively cooled and after 15 minutes of playing MAFIA 2, the game started lagging very badly and i knew that my card was overheating and when i checked the temp, it was 86° and now it's cooling down...

Now i bought this card for 80$ and i want to apply some sort of cooling which costs less then 5$ because that's all i have so please suggest me any kind of tip i can apply to prevent my card from overheating...

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

put a fan on it, replace teh tim, and hope for the best. A card thats passivley cooled is not meant to be run for a long time at load liek that.Ensure that there is sefficent airflow to the card to help with cooling. a single 120mm fan zip tied in place can fix all your problems

If you have a 70mm? fan laying around from those amd heatsinks you can try putting it on the card. That usually cools the low power cards sufficiently.

You can find a 8x8cm fan or even 12x12cm fan + zipties, for less or equal to 5 bucks.

You want a zero dollar solution?

Get a regular fan, those that run on 110v. And open your case and aim it at the videocard, at least when you are playing mafia.

Just zip a 120mm fan on it and you are fine!

Free tip : Open your case and when you play move your feet real fast next to your computer so it will cool your card FOR FREE MAN.

seriously, just get a >50mm fan and zip tie it.

Took out a 110mm cooling fan off a computer laying in the street and connected it to a 3 pin on the motherboard...although the single 3 pin is supplying current to both this fan and the one on the case but i guess it doesn't affect the speed or does it? anyways,i screwed the fan into the card and now the card stays around 60° which is just awesome...
