Hey guys . I've got a problem . Me and my friend decided to have a pc build contest with parts that are somewhere around 2010 -2011 and we can use only one part that is ours . I choosed the gpu because it was good ( hd 5870 . I upgraded to gtx 1060 6gb ) now after the pc was done we started a few things like web browsing , benchmarks ( unigine heaven for 1 hour ) and a few games . My pc didn't had a issue but when it came to pc gaming , we started with far cry 3 , skyrim , world of warships , war thunder and verdun . Now the problems starts . My gpu fan goes to 100% and monitor looses signal . I was a bit worried because it was taken of from my main pc just a week ago . I placed back in my main pc and it does the same . Tried reseating , older drivers ( both crimson and catalyst ) and the same occurs . Temps are really ok ( 38-40 idle and 63 at max until it crashed , but in benchmark went to 86 and was good ) And the card isn't overclocked
Thank you for help and sorry if i did any mistakes

I'm looking at the culprit right now! It's your PSU. Try and build your system with a more reliable unit and then see if the GPU is back to functionality. I'm already suspecting that it might've been damaged.
