  1. Hi, my old graphics card is giving me problems (after 8 years! xD).. I had to "underclock" to 540/640 to get her working. The default values are 750/900. Now I don't know if my graphic card or power supply (Corsair tx650) is "dying". My suspicions goes to the graphic card, is too hold.. Can you help me?

    Sounds like the video card and the CPU could use a good cleaning and some new thermal paste

    I've done that already but I guess it was too late, I think the graphic card is damaged because I still had the same problem after that. Both CPU and GPU temperatures are between 50 and 60CÂș

    Run the PC with the side off for a while. See if this helps at all

    U might want to check if it is filled with dust inside the computer if it is unplug the computer and blow it out with a compressor. This is usually the problem to overheating and if ur computer is sometimes making loud beeps definitely do this
