My main focus is to find out if my graphics card is damaged. I have 2 table top fans blowing inside the actual computer tower at fast rates and I never ever freeze up but my fps has dropped down to 90+ sometimes instead of 125 constant. And these color bleeds are making me wonder.
Ok I actually took the gpu out cleaned it off blew out the fan with some compressed air and plugged it back in. Now I just started up quake 3 and because I'm in the dark I used a flashlight and I went to view the gpu and the cards fan isnt running. Its just sitting there like a lump! Does it only kick in when it needs to? or should it run all the time like the heatsink on my cpu?
