Hi guys ive had my card since last year febuary ive loved it. but as of couple days ago i have had sudden spike in temps.
To make things clear my card always runs Idle at 32c full load roughly 55-60c.
So what the video card is doing is when i launch windows it be my normal temps 32c then when the 3minute mark hits my card will climb 1 degree every second till it hits 59-60c my fans kick in noisy my card is hot when touch it till i turn it off after a minute its colc again. This is all IDLE.
now nothin has changed in my system to help diagnose this i have tryed several drivers and curruntly running 13.4 ive switched bios switch and ive changed my pci express lanes Still same exact issue. temps rise after 3minutes till hits 60c.
