Well, I've been having problems with FPS in almost every game lately. At first, the game runs pretty well with high FPS, but a few minutes later, the frames decrease a lot and sometimes it's impossible to play.

The last one is Vindictus, which I should be able to run smoothly according to Can You RUN It | Can I run that game | Game system requirements :



I ran the game and waited a few minutes to the FPS issue to happen, then I ran "Core Temp" and "GPU-Z"; here's the result:






My pc was formatted a few days ago so I don't think it's a virus or something.


Thanks for your time.

Hi, welcome to TSF

Your 9500GT graphics card is overheating, even with the GPU fan speed running at 100%. Your GPU-Z screenshot shows it reaching 108C after just a few minutes. This is high enough to affect framerates. It should be approx 40C idle and 70C when gaming.

Boot into BIOS and make a note of all the temperatures and voltages listed.

Remove the side panel from your case and post back with the full details from your PSU label.

What's your case ventilation like? Do you have a fan attached to the front of the case pulling in cool air, and another fan attached to the rear of the case blowing out warm air?

If there's any dust in the case, especially around the heatsink, fans, card slots and air vents, use a can of compressed air to clean the case out.

Unclip the graphics card from the motherboard slot, unplug the cables and remove the card from the case so you can give it a good clean. You'll need to use a cotton bud to get at the dirt behind the fan blades, just be careful not to bend or crack the blades.

Thanks for you answer, but I can't find that info in my BIOS

I don't really understand what you mean with brand name, but I think this is what you asking for: INTEL, model DP43TF

And one on the PSU.

I copied the label on the PSU:

Well it's not much of a surprise it's overheating , your rear fan is backwards , your missing an entire exhaust fan , and I see slot covers missing as well.

Although at 105c your card probably fried the gpu paste already which means you'll need to pull it apart and redo the thermal paste.

Thanks, the temperature went down from 90°C to 64°C (not gaming) , but it's still too hot; I released that the GPU fan is way slower than the other ones; is that normal or my graphics card fan is dying?

If the GPU fan speed is 100% and the fan appears to be spinning slower than you'd expect, remove the cooling system from the card, give the whole thing a good clean and reapply some fresh thermal paste.

What temperature do you now get when running a fullscreen game or FurMark?

If the card is locked in at 100% speed and the fan isn't very loud (it should be) then it could very well be clogged or dying.
