Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS Started Getting Hot
:blink: Hi all , I built a gaming rig about 1.5 years ago and have been enjoying it for quite a while. Here are the system specs:
---------------------------------------
*Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe ACPI BIOS Revision 1201
*Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate SP2
*Dual Core AMD Athlon 64 X2, 3000 MHz (15 x 200) 6000+
*4GB (DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM) Corsair XS2
*eVGA NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (320 MB)
*LCD1 - Samsung SyncMaster 199BW/940BW/MagicSyncMaster CX915BW (Digital) [19" LCD](HVDP334586)
*LCD2 - Samsung SyncMaster 199BW/940BW/MagicSyncMaster CX915BW (Digital) [19" LCD](HVEL406297)
*HD - WDC WD25 00KS-00MJB0 SCSI Disk Device (232 GB) x3 (1 for OS, one for storage & 1for storage backup)

The problem I'm having is recently while gaming the temp on my GPU goes thru the roof and my graphics start laggin real bad. So bad that I have to quit playing. So I did some digging and realized my GPU has been running much hotter than it normally did it got as high as 78°C it normally idles at 47°C. now here is the current idle read out. When gaming now once the GPU diode hits 62°C or higher the game starts laggin. I pulled the card and installed an Ultra brand air cooler which helped a bit but it still gets hot.

My question is my card going to die ?
Do I need to get a better card, what should I do?
What should I be aware of if it does fail and what are the penalties if I neglect replacing the card?

I'm an engineer by trade and also run Autodesk Inventor (current version, on subscription), and a few other high end graphic applications so I really need to straighten this out. I also noticed my Inventor 3D environment is not running as smooth as it used to.

Below are temp specs from Everest System Monitoring Software One is the idle temps and the other is when I'm gaming.

It could have a lot of dust building up, open up your case and clean it out.
