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.
