GPU Temperature

Question

So it's been a really warm last few days in the usual rainy, wet and otherwise miserable UK. Today, for example, with lows of 24 degrees Celsius (75 F) and highs of 26-27 Celsius (78 F).

 

My GPU at idle temperature, with fans going about 50%, is sitting around 50C/122F. On attempting to play ArmA, after several minutes it skies up to 99C/210F.

I presumed it would be a cooling issues, but all the fans in my case are working, along with the GPU fan itself. I have installed all the latest drivers etc. 

 

It's a Nvidia GTX 580 second hand reference card, by the way. Any advice on this would be appreciated!

GTX 580 were extremely famous for heat issues as far as I remember. That might be your issue, best thing to do would be to remove the cooling fans and repaste the chip.
