Are you using the Windows drivers for the video card? Try the drivers that comes with the card or download from the maker.


I'm not using the Windows drivers. I download updated drivers from nVidia as often as they release them.

Thanks for trying :) I've been coming to that same conclusion, so time to start looking.

Ok, my system definitely overheating. I going to post a screenshot of Speedfan right after 5 minutes of COD gaming. Could it be that my fans need replacing??

The fans are not spinning very well at all, I'm actually looking online right now to find replacements for them.

Does the GPU have its own fan? I wonder if that's #3 fan.

However, the front fan and rear fans are moving pretty slowly.

That's the case fans? Then it's not moving air enough. Are those fans hooked to the PSU or the motherboard?

The heatsink fan is moving faster than the other two fans. there is a fan mounted in the front of the machine that blows in the direction of the video card. Its in the bottom front part of the case the fan in the back is mounted just below the power supply.

Ah good. Now go into your BIOS and look under hardware monitor or something similar and see if you're throttling the fans. You should have an option as full on and set it there.

I didn't see anything like that in my Bios. I looked under Standard Bios and Advanced Bios options and didn't have it.
