Say I'm playing Dying Light on my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti. I get into the game (with about-low settings) and get about 60-80 fps with little to no dips. After about 10 to 15 minutes, my FPS will drop to 20. Is that due to my GPU overheating? Is there a way I can change the overheating temperature before that cool down mode initiates? Thanks (ahead of time)!

  • Yes your hardware is overheating, even if you could change it, it would permenantly damage if, your specifications don't neet the minimum for that game – Ramhound Feb 15 '15 at 1:02
  • @Ramhound My specs were all above Recommended on Steam except for my graphics card. My graphics card was in the Minimum section (GeForce 560 was the minimum). – Camouflaged Cow Feb 15 '15 at 1:43
  • Your GPU is still throttling itself because of the strain – Ramhound Feb 15 '15 at 2:25
  • @Ramhound Should I just let it be? – Camouflaged Cow Feb 15 '15 at 2:50
