Ok well this actually isn't in my carpc but i thought i'd ask here anyways since im sure someone can help me. The other day i bought a BFG 6600gt oc for my desktop at home. When i was playing Halo after about 15 minutes my computer just shuts off. I try it again and another 15 minutes later if shuts off again. Well i download Rivatuner and check my temps and when i am playing a game it gets all the way up to 88 degrees celsius. When it first started shutting off i thought it was my weak power supply (305 watts, reccomended 350 on the box). now i see that it's runnin hot as hell so is that the problem? these cards arent supposed to run that hot are they? i tried adding a fan but it didn't really help, like 2 degrees at idle. Should i take this card back and get another one or just add like 3 more fans? btw i can play a game without it shutting off now for some reason it just runs hot as hell. Thanks in advance.
No announcement yet.
