    GPU overheating when playing games

    mattluk

      So recently i have been having some trouble with my GPU, i have an RX470, the fans don't constantly spin even when playing intensive games leading to overheating, i installed MSIAfterburner in an attempt to fix it, i disabled automatic fan speed and set it to 65% giving me 2550 RPM, i thought this may fix the problem as on auto it was fluctuating between 0-30%, this had led to me having a lower idle temperature, but still when playing games it will sit at a consistent 90 degrees, then after about half an hour the computer will just shut off, i'm looking into buying a new case, just in the off chance the airflow around my current case isn't good enough, i'd quite like to avoid purchasing a new GPU as its not currently financially possible.

       

      Any ideas anyone has i'll be happy to try out.

       

      Thank you in advance
