    Default GPU temperature problem

    I have a running 9600GT. It's couple of years old & for the past few days it's temp is rising to 90 degree Celsius at idle. I removed it's cooler & looks like the thermal paste is dried up. The paste was hard. I never changed the paste before. I do not have any problem to do normal tasks except playing games. After running games like NFS RUN, Undercover & Blur the video signal cut off, Monitor shows no signal. There is no problem to play games like "Most wanted" or low profile games. I think, it is time to change the thermal paste. But i just want to be sure about the cause. Is there anybody experienced this kind of problem before? & what kind of paste would be good for 9600GT? I am looking for cheap solution as i will change my GPU after this year.

    Thanks.

    well, sorry to hear that... i had a similar problem with my 9600gt also.... my cpu would also reach 90c+ temps.... since u already removed the heatsink, u must have also cleaned out all the dust in the heatsink fins and the fan. especially the fan, make sure its clean. and as for ur high temp problem, i have to blame the dried up thermal paste. [did u try using a blower to clean out all the dust from the graphics card b4 u un-screwed the heatsink]. as for thermal grease or paste, u can easily buy it from ucc or binary logic. costs sth around 500tk. should be good for using more than 15 times.

    Thanks for the info. I use blower regularly.

    I'm still surprised to see your card still not died or lost its hardware acceleration even though it reached to 90C!!! But I'm sure it lost some of its performance. Anywys like use other said, get thermal paste and aplied it correctly between your wiped gpu and heatsink surface. Use a very littke amount . But if I were you I would have flash my crad with modified bios setting the fan speed higher as defult. If yoy don't have any fan over your heatsink , then get a 80 mm and mount it correctly near the gpu. Also make sure your system has correct air flow directoin ... intake and exhaust. Then monitor your gpu temp with gpu-z and track the highets temp underload. If it is below 70 c then it is good as new. If not sell it immediately. Better safe then sorry. On more thing , never use blower ... never ever. It shortened your componets life span. The heavt ait flow weaken the connection of soldiered item and reduce lifespan of diode, transistors and capacitors ....
