GTX 460 overheating

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
It's currently idling at 27 *c and all my cpu cores are idling at 27-28 *c at rest but when I run grand theft auto iv for 40 minutes the computer restarts. I check in bios and it says CPU is 55 *c. AIDA 64 says GTX 460 is at 40% fan speed and I cheaped out and got it used for $140 USD.

Going to stress test it with furmark

Use Afterburner to set a fan profile for your 460.

i find nvidia cards run hotter so if your playing a graphical intense game set fans to max lol 50% dont cut it. but i find the nvidia fans are not as loud my old 5970 at 100% sounded twice as loud compared to my old gtx 465 and my current gtx580s

guys, he never even mention his GPU load temps so how do we know that it's actually overheating??? the idle temps is below average imo so that's good.
nevertheless, the zotac GTX 460 is know to run hot and loud. btw $140 is a rip-off for even a new card. and urs is used :/

If you're worried about overheating, log gaming temps to a file with something like GPU-Z or RivaTuner. To be fair though GPUs should be fine even at very high temperatures, so overheating video card would not be my first guess (usually they artifact or have driver problems before rebooting your PC). I'd also log your CPU temps to make sure that your CPU isn't overheating.

Are you overclocking? Overvolting? Default bios? Sure you didn't get a lemon to begin with? Sure your weirdo brand PSU can handle your system? Many variables to eliminate.

I flashed the bios to 1.5 carefully with instant flash would not dare do in windows, and I updated GTA IV to 1.0.7.0 from 1.0.4.0 so far gone and it runs dramatically better no reboots so far.

I don't really think its the gpu its something else. Try setting your cpu and gpu to stock settings and see if that helps. Maybe bad overclock.
post #10 of 13
could be a bad overclock setting
possibly your ram is heating up to much
I had a similar problem and it was my chipset on the motherboard getting to hot
put a small fan in there right over the chipset and see what that does

you can check it by leaving the case open and when it crashes put your hand in there and feel the heat sync of the chip sets
you can tell if they are excessevly hot

small fan over the heat sync fixed it for me and then I went full water blocks on the mother board and never looked back
