One day I came home and turned on my monitor (my computer was already on) and I saw black squares flickering. I knew the gpu was overheating. For some reason, I was too stupid to check my temps. I kept on restarting and it kept on booting into safe mode. Got tired and annoyed of it booting into safe mode, so I decide to check my gpu temps... 128 friken celcius!
I check my gpu cooler's fan's, and they werent spinning. they are just completely dead. I cannot RMA because, 1. I didnt buy the cooler myself (I bought of somebody else), 2. I have no clue how to rma :D. With regards to the vga cooler I want to buy, I have no clue (I would like some suggestions please). I would probably go with the same cooler I had, if I had no choice because its the only one I see in ncix that would work with my 8800gtx.
