I had pulled my video card out to clean out any dust bunnies hiding in the heat sink a few days ago and I seen something strange on the top of the video card. It looks like cooked dust to me. I'll try to get a pic of it later today I was just wondering is it common problem when using a mid/high end video card when playing a game for six or plus hours? :)

Graphics cards can reach 90C under a load, that's 194F.  To put this into perspective water boils at 212F at sea level.  Does this give you any ideas?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
