Mate my, case is fully open and airconditioner is cranking away to lower room temperature too!

I might suggest putting a can of compressed in the fan blades and letting the tube slide deeper into the heatsink and try to blow anything that may or may not be blocking it. When it reaches it extremely high tempatures. Can you feel an incredible force of air coming out the heatsink thats exposed? ((should look like several grates)). If you're not feeling much air being released you may have a jam up in your ventilation system.

Oh and is your case closed?
I am not going to open the HSF etc up! I just don't have the testicular fortitude to do that!

My case is open though...has been since I have had these issues.

And, I do not feel much air being pumped out even at 100% fan cycle...so compressed treatment may help me..and something I hadn't thought of!

So I will try your advice..as there might be clogged up stuff in the HSF as I have shetland sheepdog shedding 1 tonne of hair each day!

Will let you know if that worked when I get around to it!

I didn't read anything prior to this posting about anyone asking if the fan(s) were turning on the card? My first thought was that and then maybe the card's heatsink fins were clogged. Good luck, MUYA.

Managed to get distributor's address and contact number.

After talking and emailing them, they want me to bring it in....and they said they will help me repair it?? Well hopfully they meant replacing the buggered card!

Hope it works out OK for ya dude . Something sounds amiss if it's so hot with aircon in your room, even for a dual PCB card.

Heh, they want you to bring it in by hand and they're going to help you fix it?

That sounds strange...

Although this is good news! I happy for it...it's embarassing that I didn't use the compressed air before!

erm...after a bit of compressed air business (thanks Chris)....my GPU temp is now at 60 degrees celcius when I am playing Age of Conan. My god..what a simple cure!

I hope I don't jinx it!

Thanks for suggestion all!
