8800 gt gets really hot

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
so when i turn on the computer within a minute to five it gets hot to the touch, i cant touch it. it causes artifacts really bad because it gets so hot in about a minute. should i clean off all the old thermal paste and put some new paste on?

Yes, and make sure the fan is working lol. Usually 50C+ is very hot to the touch.

My 8800 GTS ran quite similarly temperature wise in my system and I thought it was down to insufficient cooling, then I put it into a new build for my parents and there was no change and hasn't had problems.

I never changed the thermal compound either due to sheer laziness.
