Games start lagging after 10 minutes

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Now ive installed Metro 2033 and played it on Very high and a bunch of things to the max and it runs ok till after 10mins in the game (the part where you put your mask on and get it that big smokey room)

Anyways i havent found a way to cool my GPU (maxes at 94 after those 10mins of game) idk if its GPU overheating....i have a fan blowing how air outside,i even *cough* declocked *cough* my GPU to 750 mhz to possibly lower those temps..got it down maybe a single celsius im not sure..but not much.

SO my question is WHAT is cousing this problem..if its CPU no prob i can easyly oc it.If its the gpu well....i have no idea how to see the TIM,get to the TIM,apply the TIM...i have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what im supposed to do with TIM...so yeah

bassicly i want to know whats cousing this...this happens on other games too depending on the time spent playing...
The last drop in my water glass that spilt the water was metro 2033.

please help me. BTW does anyone know whats the MAX safe temperature for my GPU..thanks...
IF ANYONE NEEDS SCREENSHOTS ILL BE HAPPY TO GIVE THEM.
i attached a gpu-z sensor log that started logging in the very beggining and ended on 94C where i think it started lagging..also my gpu idles at 55C and i know thats very crappy!

PS i know i write veeeeery crappily,but please help me..i have rep ups for you

what is your resolution setting? That card may not handle metro well at very high settings.

Your GPU isn't designed for those temps. Cool it better. Use AMD Overdrive or MSI Afterburner to make your GPU fan run full tilt. You have to get it below 85 C.

Optimum:

* Core i7 CPU
* NVIDIA DirectX 11 compliant graphics card (GeForce GTX 480 and 470)
* As much RAM as possible (8GB+)
* Fast HDD or SSD :shock:

thats to run it at its absolute best, high isn't much further off, but lower your setting, this game does require a lot to run

If you get "lag" after prolonged periods of gaming in most of your games, yes. Something is overheating and your GPU certainly is too hot.

I would try lowering your settings and resolution while keeping an eye on card temps. As Biohazard recommended MSI Afterburner is an excellent program for monitoring GPU temps and altering fan speed.
