High GPU temperature


Oct 2, 2011
I have win7 ultimate 32 bit OS with nvidia 9400gt. Normal GPU temperature is around 50-60C and while gaming it goes upto 90C. But from one week as soon as I start the computer I see that Gpu temp is already 80-90C and while gaming it crosses the limit 105C. Does anyone know what is causing this rapid increase in temp?

I have been using this from 3 years.
I did a clean install of new nvidia drivers and also checked for viruses. Cant find a solution
that's clearly wrong, too high so first do what they suggested, most likely that will fix it.

also, do some cable management to improve airflow, add fans if you can.

9400gt should not be that hot, even a high end card should not be that hot
