Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
On Saturday, my video drivers started crashing while I was playing LOL. This is uncommon behavior. I have two Geforce 9800GTs, set up for SLI. I have two monitors.
My system specs are:
Intel Core2 Q9450 @ 2.66GHz
The aforementioned Geforce 9800GTs
idk, some other shit
My drivers are up to date, I uninstalled, reinstalled, rolled back, updated again, etc. Did repairs on LOL and Torchlight 2, which also started crashing. Then I fired up Speedfan:
My GPUs are running, idle, at 62C and 74C
My CPUs are between 52C and 66C
Basically everything on SpeedFan looks like it's on fire. I double-checked the temps with the Nvidia system tool.
My case is clean. I clean it every couple months with air and I've never encountered an amount of dust that disturbed me. It was always a... tolerable dusting. My question is: Wasabi? Is it my cards? The drivers? If I need to start replacing fans and heat sinks and shit I'm probably going to just get a new PC and be very sad about it. This thing is kind of old, but it's got a low amount of hours on it and has never given me a single problem. In fact, it's a fucking champion. I hate to see it go out like this, yo.
