As i game my gpu handles the gaming and starts to heat up, but as it heats up the fan slows down hence, causing it to heat up to a point where the fan stops causing the heat to rise substantially and heat just causes games to lag and crash. i have a club-3d radeon hd 7750 1024mb GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 gpu, i tried removing the fan and reinstalling, re applying thermal paste etc but didnt work, please help thanks.

Sounds like either a driver issue or a manufacturing issue. Un install the video card drivers and re-install them.

EDIT: Your PWM fan control is messed up.

PWM doesn't control GPU fans

do you have a GPU controller software like MSI Afterburner? You can use software like that to set your fan curve on your GPU so it doesnt' slow down under load.

Even so, i have done this and fan still slows down at the temperatures specified, msi afterburner will say the fan is spinning at x% but in fact will be idle/not spinning at all.

reinstalling the drivers did not work, still have the same problem?
 

Hello man

Yeah sounds like a driver issue, or the PWM control chip is broken. Try the driver removal using Driver Sweeper (easy way to clean everything out). If that fails then call the manufacturer.
