Lately I've been getting a bit more worried! Ever since, and even before I got the computer, there is a windy or airy noise coming from the computer that sounds like one of the fans. It fluctuates, sometimes to where it is really loud or to where you can't even hear it at all.
I recently aqquired Speccy, which shows the temperature of my graphics card.
Well, just a few minutes ago, the noise started up while I was playing Minecraft. Becoming curious, I opened Speccy to check on it. The temperature was at a whopping 92 degrees Celsius. I definitely thought it was overheating! I quit Minecraft (and shooed the cat off my computer tower, she always sits there but doesn't seem to bother anything. Should she not sit up there anymore?) and kept speccy open. Right now, the temperature is at it's usual; around 50 degrees Celsius.
What is the normal temperature my graphics card SHOULD be kept at? Is 90 degrees Celsius too much? I really don't want a busted graphics card or anything, haha!
EDIT: Tried playing it again on lower graphics, temperature still went up to 99 degrees celsius. I'm really afraid of playing games for prolong time now, but I've always played games for a long while with no problems... I guess now because I know what my temperature is doing now is what's scaring me from playing my games so much.
