is it my video card?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi, for now, i'm onto crysis2 and i noticed that when my video card temp reaches 60+, my fps would lower down, until noticeable spikes.

because high temps = bad performance
although 60 isn't that high, you still should keep them below that.
all you gotta do is lower the settings or get a better cooler

Or, if you're not fussed on noise, bump the fan speed upto 100% xD .

And 60 isnt that bad.. Mine idles (allbeit mines a different model) at around 65.. due to.. Bad tower positioning and poor airflow..
But if I bump the fan high~ish I can keep 35-40C idle, and 55~ish Load.

this is true
EVGA precision or MSI Afterburner can help ya with this.
i keep mine at 55% at idle getting temps around 45ish and then gaming i bump it to 100% and getting about mid-50ish

i'm running sli 275's though.
they're a lot hotter than most of the cards i've used in the past for some reason

thank you for your inputs. well i'm on hardcore graphic settings and maybe that's why my fps drops. anyway, i still have to modify my case a bit so one fan would be directly blowing towards my card.
