im guessing the card is overheating. at idle gpu is about 40 C. Whenever i play starcraft 2, game freezes. (already set the frameratecap and glue). Also used rivaturner to increase fan speed but that didnt help either.

i haave a ati radeaon 4600 hd series.

would getting a pci slot cooller be a good idea?

i have crappy ddr2 rams 2 gigs.

however, i read that starcraft 2 had problems with overheating the gpu. so i thought i would add a pci cooler right underneath. But i wasnt sure if i had to take the original video card fan out.

is it more effective if i keep the original video card fan and add a pci slot cooler right underneath?


edit: btw its a 4670 hd radeon.
