Gpu crash --> pc reboot at almost every game

So yeah i can play any game for about 10-15 min and then my screens go black and my pc reboots...

anyway i know this is normally a overheating issue, the problem is: i tried everything installed new fans in my case, new cooling-past for my video card. but nothing is helping my GPU stays at 71-79 C idle.

so i thought maybe there are processes running on the background without me knowing of it which can be closed to take a load of my Card.

it is summer around here and this is a new problem, but if i could fix it for a few months i'll be happy :P my new build is on his way

oh btw this is my setup + temp at idle:

  1. Yeah, the idle temp of the GTS 450 is a bit high. Probably needs the thermal paste replaced and a good cleaning. Does leaving the side off the case help any? Have you run CCleaner to make sure it isn't a software conflict or registry error causing the crash? Try using this gfx driver uninstaller and then run CCleaner and re-install the latest gfx driver for your card and OS. https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/550192/geforce-drivers/display-driver-uninstaller-ddu-v12-9-3-4-released-06-09-14-/

    What all did you do to the card?
    Btw... That card is pretty weak for an i5 Sandy Bridge. Hope your new system includes a better card too.
