Video card becomes over 90C
  

Hello,

Im from holland so il try to do my best on english
I have a Nvidia geforce 8400GS Vid card Whit no fan at all on the card, only passive blocks (i dont know the name) black blocks. When i dont use the pc my vid card becomes over 90C in seconds and when i start a game (like call of duty modern warfare 2) it becomes over 100C the normal temperature from my card is 40C so this is not normal. What can i do to fix this?
tnx.

Operating system: Windows vista home premium x86(32bit)

Re: Video card becomes over 90C

If your video card heats up over about 90C then you really should think about finding a way to cool your pc. I got a 9800GTX and that on idle 65C and heats up on max gaming to 78C and ok i got a desktop pc but thats not bad. My friend has a laptop with standard 8600gt in it and that heats up to 80C on max even after 5+ hours.

Re: Video card becomes over 90C

I think that most of the 8400 GS video card I have seen dont have a fan, hence overheating is the result. If the card is fan equipped riva tuner should also let you adjust the fan speed from the stock 29% to 40% or 60% 40 cooled my 8800gt by 8C without too much additional noise. To help reduce it's heat further you can clean out the case dust, add more case fans , or lower the room temperature by turning on an ac.
