Cleaned 6950, forgot to reattach FAN power

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
took my rig apart to hook up new PSU, and also took off the 6950 cooler to clean it out, they had some pile of TIM gunk on there, I used about have of what I would put on CPU which is still probably too much

powered it all up went back to OCing the CPU, had a BSOD in 1m, then restarted and this time noticed my 6950 was idle at 55C, it took me about 10 sec too remember that I didn't plug its fan back in

REAL good thing I didn't start gaming right away, anyway no harm done, if any of its other parts got real hot, it was only on for maybe 3-4min, then 2min, then another 2-3min
