curious to know if this is normal or not

Recommended Posts

Hi   I've noticed my GTX680 went into overdrive and uses so much voltage and the temp went to 100degree. I have adjusted the fan to full to cool it down ...... So i thought it must have some dust in it.. I have removed it and cleaned it..  it wasnt much dust really , just a lil bit. I opened the outer case and see if insides ok. I noticed that R22 chip in the middle is missing or is that how it is ?  The red cap at the top left side is leaking abit.  This graphic card is only a year old.
I have updated the EVGA software to make few adjustment to bring down the temp. but i dont really know whats right voltage, power target, GPU clock offset etc. 

 

I mainly use internet and youtube clips to watch ........ 

Sorry I didnt get to print screen the previous one when it went into overdrive ..........

Then it might have been a software glitch.

if you have a cap leaking you need to rma. a cap shouldn't leak and could cause a serious issue.
