Games slower after applying thermal paste on video card

  1. Hi every1 thank you for your help in advance..

    I'm playing PES2011 and Call of duty:Black ops but for the past week my games start normal and run at a normal speed, but after playing for say 10 mins they slow down and start to hang....

    In Pes2011 in Master league it slows down but when i exit to main menu it goes back upto normal speed...

    when i start playing the CPU temp is:
    CORE 0: 54C
    CORE 1: 56C

    when it slows down:
    CORE 0: 59C
    CORE 1: 59C

    and also the cpu usage goes to 100%

    Please suggest if u have any input ... THANK YOU.......

    Where did you apply the thermal paste on the card?

    It sounds like your GPU is overheating. Is there any chance you did not reinstall the cooler properly? You can use HWMonitor to check your GPU temps.
