GPU shutting down randomly

crabcrabcam

I have recently had a problem that my computer would randomly black screen and a fan would spin up super fast. I have fixated the problem to the graphics card. I removed it and gave it a bit of a dust off and the problem went away for a few days but now it's back. Do you guys have any idea how to fix it. My best guess would be overheating or a bad heat detector. I've had the card over 2 years (GTX 650Ti Boost for reference). or is it just time to bite the bullet and get a new card? Thanks in advance for any help!

It only ran up to 48 degrees and cooled down shortly afterwards. I could try leaving GPUZ in the back ground with log to file on and see if there's a spike after it shuts down right? As the computer is fine afterwards I would be able to see the file when I restart.

I think that it's using up too much power. I don't know why it's only just started as I've had it for 2 years. It's using 93% + at high points during games. Nothing else seems too bad, it's stable at 70% during games and nothing appears to be bad but I guess I will see next time it goes black. I guess I should look for the point where fan speed spikes right?
