The fan on my graphics card keeps slowing dont hen speeding back up. It started the other day I noticed when powering on my comp the fan sounded as if it was going really fast then later that day the fan started to stop then start up again, at first I thought it might be over heating cause it is hot to the touch when I have it going. I tried opening the tower and letting a fan blow on it but I read it was bad to do that because dust and particles can get inside it easier. So then I went to the store grab a can of dust off and went to town on it. I got rid of most of the dust out of it and it ran better so I closed it back up. I now have had the computer on for like 5 hours not really doing anything with it but letting it sit and it started to slow down then speed back up

 

so my question is whats going on with it? Any ideas?

 

my Graphjcs card is a Nvideo GeForce GT 220

its running temp when i play a game like counter strike source 90 degrees C, I read that thats normal but it sounds hot to me.

 

when Im surfing the net like im doing now to post this its at 74 degrees C

 

Would it be worth it to invest in a intercooler system or something? Im not to computer savy so I would LOVE a simplified response. Thank you for reading this over!

 

 

I attached a pic of what I think are my computer specs also

anything over 106c and your screen will black out, your PC will remain on and you might be able to switch your VGA cable to your auxillary port on the back of your case. if you have one (onboard video)  there very well be something(s) clogging up airflow across your heatsink that compressed air can't remove (i.e. impacted)  which means you may need to  get in there with a toothpick in between the fins of your heatsink and physically

scrape along the surfaces ... or your thermal paste may need to be re-applied.
