Hello guys! I'm normally just a lurker here with no account, but I can't find any info why the GPU is doing this so I decided to register and ask the gurus here! biggrin.gif

So I purchased this used GPU sometime ago, the owner has just used this for like 2 months. It has been with me for 7 months now. Today I noticed when the fan goes up to 100% when playing graphic intensive games like heavily modded Skyrim with tons of mods and ENB the GPU emits a strange smell, I don't know how to describe it. So now I'm staying at 20%~30% fan speed so it won't emit the strange smell but temps goes like 75c~80c when playing.

Any idea why? Also the fans seems to be weaker now at 100% since they aren't "noisy" anymore, but the fans are still spinning fast.
