I am having issues with my 9800GTX lately while gaming. Mostly with source but still with gaming as well. Stock clock and I am running EVGA's precision tool. Turned the fan up to 75. good cooling case and even at extreme gaming I'm idling at 60 degrees or below. Stock clock on the video card, EVGA 9800GTX.

The issue i am havnig is the game would freeze, well my computer would freeze altogether. Which is getting SUPER annoying. AC is blowing towards my side fans as well.I have ran the driver sweeper and installed most current driver. Please help me. This happens most in CS:S and COD4 it seems to run perfect and rarely freezes.....

I did, my temps dont go beyond 60 degrees. Even with Extreme gaming. Most I have seen is at 56-58. My AC does blow towards my side fans, also its more than 15 feet away so no worries about consendation here.

Have not heard of those programs yet.
