With a gpu that old it very likely needs new thermal paste if it’s never been changed.
By getting a better case with more fans, it would potentially solve the problem. Also, try putting the fan speeds to 100% if it has one.
There must be at least a heat sink even if it’s passively cooled. If there is actually no cooler then that’s the problem.Thanks for your response. I really appreciate it.
But there is no cooler on the GPU. Therefore thermal paste version I think is gone? or not?
In my case I have just only one rear 80x80mm fan in a whole case.
It was for intake, but yesterday when I cleaned my pc case from dust, I changed its direction to exhaust. And temps of GPU were going above 100c in very short time closer to its max temp (105c)
And after monitoring GPU's temps I decided to change back to intake direction, and now it is about 99-101c after one-hour simple working and internet browsing. No, any gaming if it would possible ))
It works already for 10 years with these conditions.There must be at least a heat sink even if it’s passively cooled. If there is actually no cooler then that’s the problem.
100c is too hot and prolonged use will shorten the life of the gpu. Thermal paste degrades slowly with time and usage and could be preventing the heat from effectively being transferred to the cooler. The picture you supplied was for the pc, can you share a picture of the underside of the gpu.It works already for 10 years with these conditions.
I just start monitoring its temp only from yesterday, after launching PC without side panels for the first time and feeling that coming warm air from the GPU. Probably it worked with that temps always.
So can I hope it will be worked after this?
Or it is very high-critical and I should do something?

Thank you very much for your suggestion. Now I think it really can solve my high-temperature issue.There needs to be a fan on top of that heatsink which looks like it is missing. You will notice a white 2 pin header top right near I/O. You can try finding a third party fan to fit on top check on aliexpress do a search for GT 9500 fan
Thare are 2 plastic pins holding gpu cooler in place. Remove those pins and you can remove gpu cooler.But before that I want to clean my GPU from dust with brush and also I want to know can I disconnect the heatsink, clean it and chip from old thermal paste and reconnect them without thermal paste YET!
Ok, got it! Thanks!You should also spend a few dollars and get a second fan blowing put on the rear of the case, put the front back back to an intake fan so you have cool air flowing across your components and out the back. Someone clearly removed the fan from that video card, that design of heatsink is made for a fan to be on it.
