Graphics Card has dust blocking its Heat Exchanger Fins

okay, i have a gtx 1080 founders edition, so you say that if i open the graphics card and clean it, then it would just fix it self?

I also remember it.

Or, Check your game details. Is it supported your Windows version or bit?

Does sound like a heat problem worth blowing the dust out of your machine - a hair dryer set on cool a small brush will do it. Make sure machine is off and unplugged first.

You will, almost certainly, need to take the cover off your Graphics Card. The GTX 1080 Founders Edition could have rarely been better designed for trapping dust

i have slit my graphics card apart, barely any dust in there, my pc is clean i clean it very often, still does it. just longer spaces in between now i think could it be the CPU?

I recommend to Fruit Bat /\0/*. I personally use the *EasyGo CompuCleaner - Electric Computer Blower for Electronic Devices to blow out my PC. This EasyGo Compu-Cleaner is a computer blower that does not compress air from 120D electricity. It can also be used as a PC cleaner, keyboard blower, laptop cleaner and some others electronic devices.

Just plug this electric air duster into an electric outlet and it is ready to blow high-pressure air immediately unlike compressed air dusters. You can also use this EasyGo CompuCleaner - Electric Computer Blower for Electronic Devices

If the machine is clean then you need to use something like speedfan (free) to check temperatures and voltages.

If temperature are still high then you may need to renew the thermal paste on the cpu. If voltages are wrong then probably problems with a failing PSU
