Thanks so much Phil for getting back to me!
I do have a question though that I'm noticing. My last card was an AMD and it would run up to 74C when I was running a game when things were functioning normally. Had an issue once where it got into the 90C's area but it just needed to be cleaned.
I'm not as familiar with GeForce cards so wanted to ask if they typically run hotter or if it is perhaps what I'm running. I did buy Elder Scrolls Online which was what I was hoping to run. The GeForce card didn't have something similar to the catalyst control suite the AMD card had that told me how hot it was running. So I did some research and downloaded MSI Afterburner which has been monitoriing Power Usage, GPU Temp and Fan Speed etc. ect. I don't quite understand it all but wanted to be able to see easily how hot the gpu was running. Right now it has gotten up to 84C which seems pretty hot to me. I did see the specs on the cards website that it is rated up to 98C which sounds really hot.
I just don't want to fry anything. Any input on safe running temps. I used the optimize tool with the card but I am completely fine lowering settings if it will keep me in a safer temp and usage zone.
Thanks so much for everyone who responds.
