Help with GPU and CPU running really hot

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright im having a problem, I just formatted my computer and put Black ops back on and started playing it, All the sudden i hear this LOUD fan go on and its never done that before, now i know its my GPU which is a GTX 470, So i booted up Speedfan and check out the temps during game play and it was at 87c, an the Core 0 im guessing that is my CPU is at 97c, Now at idle im at 59c on the GPU and 58c on The CPU, I feel as if this is not good, I also have the case wide open and 4 fans in the case, I have a iBUYpower and im still under warranty so i would like to figure this out before then. The case is not a full case but the one before. There is alot of space around the GPU so i dont understand why its getting so darn hot. I dunno how to mess with volts and stuff either kind of newbie

System specs
i7 930 2.8 ghz
GTX 470 Nvidia
12 gb ram
800 Watt power supply



THis is IDLE

also today i just played for about 30 min and my GPU was at 100c
i took off the cover that comes on the nvidia 470 gtx to see if it would run cooler but no its not. Any help would be great!

Pretty common temps for a stock-reference cooler 470 with decent airflow. What's cooling your cpu btw? Your cpu spiking to 97 does not look good

I have a iBUYPOWER and the case sucks, but this has never happen to me before. I have both the Sides off of the case to increase airflow and have all 4 fans running, The Cpu has a Stock cooler on it i believe doesn't look like anything special, I was just playing 10 min ago and the computer froze and shut off that's a first. i tried to reboot but had to wait and i touched the GPU and it basically would of fried my finger if i kept it on any longer. The mobo is a MSI x58 pro-e , it came With SLI GTS 250 but i traded those out for 1 470 love the card and i still have box for it which i think has a 2 yr warranty but my iBUYPOWER has a year left of Warranty on it. The case was poorly put together to i had to take everything out and rewire it but even me doing that its still a cluster**** due to the small ass Mid size case. i thought it was A Full Tower when i bought it but i read wrong. What Should i i remember i cleaned the Fans of dust and inside of computer, I took the fan off the cpu and off the gpu but this was a while ago maybe i do need to apply some more thermal compound.

O and btw Does having that big plastic thing on the gpu, you know like the cover, well i took it off thinking it would increase airflow but does that cover direct the air from the GPU fan on to the processing unit? I have my fan to 100% right now by using MSI afterburner i dont want my card to blow up lol 450 dollars when i bought it, i stilll have receipt and box too

Room is a good 68 degrees the case is wide open there is no reason for a complete SHUTDOWN of my computer when playing black ops, Not even full settings, But again i just formatted and i just took that cover off the GPU 2 days ago and this is when this started happening, although i think my cpu has been running hot for a while. i didnt know thermal compound could make a big difference
