Please help me keep from burning up another GPU!
Posted 12 April 2012 - 11:09 PM
core i7 920[email protected] GHz
GTX 550 Ti 1GB
it's all packed in a small case, but i do keep the side off and the actual GPU card doesn't have much around it.please don't respond with case or cooling systems resolutions as those aren't options for me right now. i would rather try tweaking for right now to either cool it or at least keep it in a safe zone and possibly boost performance. thank you in advance to anyone who can help and if any other specs/settings are needed, just let me know and i will get back with an answer asap!

As far as overclocking goes, I wouldn't recommend OCing the GPU. But that CPU should have overclocking head room. If you haven't done any OCing before, I recommend reading some guides and try to find people who have similar systems as you. Their results can be used as a guide, but do remember that every system handles overclocking differently. Motherboard and power supply are major factors.
I assume you have a 64 bit OS there, you may want to try using memrestrict, that can help with performance at times. How fresh is your OS installation? GTAIV can be very sensitive, a defragmentation + ccleaner + AV scan run (I recommend MBAMI) can only help.
