Default Re: Just got a new videocard and it seems to overheat.

The maximum temps for the G80 and G92 are around 100c so that is not overheating at all. My 8800GT reaches 90c at full load and it's not unstable at all, so you're fine.

Try this, go to Control Panel > click on System. In the next window, click the Advanced tab and then click the settings button under Startup and Recovery. Under System Failure, deselect "Automatically restart". Click OK twice and you should be good.

Alright I tried that. I will see what happens.

Could it also be my OS doing something funny because lately alot of weird stuff was happening. I am actually reformatting my OS drive today and seeing what happens(also going with Vista over XP).

Default Re: Just got a new videocard and it seems to overheat.

Ok last time I played the game it just froze. It would not reload and I tried tabbing out and it would not and I tried Ctrl Alt Del and nothing. Eventually I had to reboot computer with reset. I am going to try the new OS and see what happens.
