There is a message popping up saying that my GPU is running at a high temperature. The screen flickers a little and the computer beeps over and over again. I have lots of fans and cannot find a way to cool my computer anymore without getting water cooling. I checked the temps of the CPU and it was running at a low temp which means only the GPU is having cooling problems. There is still thermal glue in between the GPU and it's heatsink. I also installed the latest drivers.

Case fans will make no difference to the temperature of the graphics card if the fan on the graphics card (if it has a fan) isn't spinning. Therefore check the graphics card fan to see if its caked in dust.

What graphics card do you have? Also, visually inspect the card to ensure the fan is spinning when the computer is on.
