EVGA 9800GTX overheating?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello. I'm not sure if my video card is overheating but everytime I start playing Crysis everything is going well but after 15-20 minutes the game starts to lag. I have a full tower case with 5 big fans pushing air in and 2 big and 1 small fan pushing air out. I added a slot fan to see if it helps with the lag but it didn't. What options do I have to fix this problem? Thank you in advance.

Heat doesn't usually cause lag directly. I would check the fps with something like fraps (unless Crysis has one built in) to make sure you are actually lagging. I would assume it has to do with memory allocation.

When I start playing everything is fine. If there's a problem with fps or memory wouldn't I start having problems at the beginning when I start playing?

By lag, what exactly do you mean? Graphics memory can be affected if it has to start swapping out textures. As for my fps comment i thought that was what you meant by lag and i was trying to quantify it (ie. 60fps normal, 15fps after 15min). How much memory is on your graphics card.

What settings are you using to play? Is this on multiplayer or singleplayer? Did you try turning some settings down? Run the ATI fuzzy cube test for 15 minutes and watch your temps/artifacts.

There's 512MB of memory on the video card. (EVGA 9800GTX). I haven't check the FPS yet but sometimes the game looks like pictures. (low FPS i guess). The settings I'm using is on high, AA in 4x and is on singleplayer. Thanks for helping me.
