GTX 780 getting super hot and artifact.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got my 780 today I am almost about to throw up because I can't believe I spent that much money on a single component. I upgraded from a 580. But anyway, I was just playing Metro LL and at the moment where that sniper chick is climbing up the ladder, right before she opens the manhole to the surface, the polygons get corrupted and the card artifacts. There is stuff everywhere. It's what i'm guessing LSD feels like. Is this a driver problem, or do I need to invest in some dedicated GPU cooling? It isn't overclocked at all, but the only thing cooling it is 4 case fans.

I didn't check GPU-Z. Frankly I was scared about screwing up my card, so I exited out as quickly as possible. I put my hand to the exhaust-end of the card, and I couldn't leave my finger there for more than 10 seconds it was so hot. I don't remember my 580 ever getting this heated.

It kind of helps if you know the actual temperature of the GPU itself. All GPU-Z does is report information.
