  1. As far as I’m aware you can’t flash bios on nvidia cards. If you want free performance just oc the card
  2. Like mentioned before get rid off gpu shroud and mount one or two 120mm case fans. I’ve done it before and cooling gpu like this makes huge difference in temps. I’ve used two 120mm fans and attached them using cable ties.
  3. It’ll be best if you manage to isolate which fans causing the problem. Once you sure we can sort that out. For fans connected to the mobo you can most likely change fan settings in bios or get speedfan software
  4. £100 just for the card? If you lucky you may find 980 but to find waterblock for it it’s not easy task, they are quite rare right or if you find some they will be quite expensive. 970 is similar situation, but even harder to find waterblock. Just look at ebay you may get lucky. As far as I remember two days ago I’ve seen 970 with waterblock for £135
  5. Disable all scanning and see if this helps
  6. Must be something in the background starting and using the ram. Maybe some virus scan ??
  7. You can find this kind of info easily https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/33925/intel-pentium-processor-e2200-1m-cache-2-20-ghz-800-mhz-fsb.html
  8. According to this you can play it, but roughly 25fps is barely enjoyable, I would wait for the new gpu if I was you.
  9. Maybe you pushing the oc too far? Or not adequate cooling and cpu is overheating?
  10. You sure that you tried to short right pins for power switch ? Check the pic1 for right ones. Also you can trie clearing cmos if you didn’t do it before. Do you have speaker connected to the mobo? Is there any beeps? Last you can try with memory button (pic2)
  11. What software you used to check it? 1% is really low and a bit unrealistic
  12. Well that was spectacular. There is small chance that card could be fixed (I’ve seen it before) but like mentioned before I wouldn’t risk it. As of the cause of fire it may be even some dust collected over the time causing short.
  13. Msi afterburner is best option. You can set up custom fan curve over there
  14. Check the temps, if they are acceptable than don’t bother.
