I've not overclocked anything.
I did a clean install and removed the old driver before installing the windows 10 version back from the Nividia site.
Can't imagine it's an overheating problem as it doesn't do this when using vista, windows 7 or linux on this machine. It has only ever done it on windows 10.
I will monitor it though.
The fans inside are clear of dust and the GPU is also clear.
Edit 45 mins later stressed the gpu running a game, video, browser and a few applications with active gui's at the same time it went from 36C to 37C and for a tiny amount of time 38C all blue arrows going down which I am assuming is cold and good.
The pc has also been on all day since 7 this morning so it would have been a normal temp before I began the test should I keep testing? Not sure what to do as I have never used speed fan and can't find much about it to do with gpu heat test. Looked at how to use it on you tube but they all seem to be about ajusting fan speed.
sorry for the non technical terms
Edit 2 I have just done patch Tuesdays updates and in them was a Nividia update so I'll give it a few days to see if this recent update will fix things if that's ok?
