Do not Overclock!

If you have overclocked your graphics card beyond its limit, then most likely the GPU cooler is not able to keep up with the temperature. Eventually, the GPU will definitely get overheated and throttle down to lower clock speeds to avoid any kind of damage to itself.

Change Thermal Paste!

Improper contact between the GPU and heatsink also results in overheating of the GPU.

Higher Case Temperature

If your case has bad airflow then you have higher case temperature and thus higher temperature of other components including graphics card.

GPU Fan Issue

Sometimes a faulty and damaged fan can also be a cause for GPU overheating.

Change PSU

The power supply will not be able to supply sufficient power to your graphics card and CPU.

Power Management Settings

Set “Power Management Settings” to high performance from power saver or balanced.

And change advanced power settings:

  • PCI Express: Off

NVIDIA Settings

  • Go to “NVIDIA control panel”
  • Select “Manage 3D settings”
  • Change power management mode: “Prefer maximum performance”
