    So i bought a new desktop half a year ago. I did not put it together myself but i bought it as a whole. It worked perfectly fine for these 6 months. Now the graphics cards ( gtx 1070 ) cooling isnt working properly any more. When i run a game, the cooling of the graphic card is starting up. at its max speed it slows down again and makes a noise. Then it gains speed again. This repeats all the time.
    I literally am a newbie to computer stuff so i have absolutely no idea what to do or how to handle that issue.
    I hope someone of you guys can help me out with it

    We know nothing about your computer, other than it has a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, so please do the following in it:

    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) file.
    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
    Information about your computer will appear.
    Return here, then copy-and-paste the entire text here.

    Have you opened the case and checked the fans on the video card? If not, that is the very first thing I would do.
    Note you should check with the seller; 1 to see if it is still under warranty and 2 if so, would opening the case void the warranty. Do that prior to anything else.

    As Frank posted above, you need to post ALL of your exact system specs. Do not post "500W" pw supply; post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.
