My stock gpu's (nvidia geforce 230) fan broke and I do not want to upgrade it because I plan on building a computer within a year. I bought the vantec iceberq fan as a replacement, however instead of being a simple fix, my gpu now runs at around 78 degrees idle, and 70 with the fan set to max. If I put any game on, temperatures reach about 105 degrees within a couple minutes and the gpu shuts off. Opening the side of my case makes no difference in temperature and I'm at a loss for a cheap solution.

Zero dust anywhere (also, its a brand new fan), fan spins properly and at a good speed, cleaned and reapplied the thermal paste included in the kit and the fan sits directly on top of the gpu chip (metal part seen in picture is removed, gpu chip is under the horizontal lines).

Any help would greatly be appreciated! Thank you.

they are low quality,if the output is dropping it would cause a rise in temperatures

see if you can borrow a 450w to try i it

did you put to much paste on

to much is as bad as none at all as it blocks the heat transfer to the heatsink

if you have the right amount it should be translucent

i have never had to put any on a video chip,but i would have thought it would be a lot smaller than a cpu and a amount the size of a small grain of rice would have been enough
