GTX 560 Ti Overheating
Hello,

I have owned my gtx 560 ti for less than a year now and yesterday it began over heating while playing Diablo3. The first time it happened the whole graphics driver crashed and my computer had to be restarted.
I then downloaded MSI afterburner to check to see if the card was overheating launched D3 and sure enough the temp steadily climbed to 100 C before I exited.

I then checked to see if the fans were spinning. No they were not spinning.

I took out the card dusted it, detached the fans to insure there were no obstructions, and then properly reattached the fans. This did not affect anything.

I researched this forum and came across many responses indicating to move core voltage to 1063. I did this, but no affect.

So I am here today wondering is my card dead? Will I have to replace a less than one year old card? What does this mean to you? Thank you response is greatly appreciated.

This -
Can't stay cool if the fans don't spin. Nothing to do with core voltage. That only applies to factory OC's that are not stable with stock voltage.
Don't matter if there is no dust. Sounds like you need to RMA, assuming you have not stuffed around with the card and removed the heat-sink - voiding your warranty.
