Geforce 210 is overheating while playing Minecraft(1.7.2)

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Yesterday I installed the latest version of Minecraft on my PC and launched the game. The game worked fine clocking around 75 FPS. I always check my check my GPU temperature while playing games so I launched GPU-Z and I was shocked to see it hit 80 Degrees Celsius. What's wrong with my GPU? I've never heard anyone saying Geforce 210 at 80 Degrees while playing Minecraft. Even Call of Duty MW3 hasn't hit the above temperature even if I play for 5 hours…

 There must be many processes running in the background of your PC. They are consuming your CPU while playing Minecraft game and that is the reason your GPU temperature is increasing.

To solve this issue open the task manager and go to ‘Processes’. If you found some unidentified processes which are not intended then your computer is affected by some virus. Immediately  you should install a good anti-virus and scan the entire computer. After that restart the computer and verify if it’s still overheating.

Also may be fan is not working for the GPU. Open the cover and start your system and verify all the fans are working properly or not. If there is problem with a single  fan then it will overheat your GPU when you will play call of duty as well. If the fan is not working, then contact service center and repair or change the fan.

I don’t think there’s a problem with your GPU because its job is only to process graphics. If you noticed your GPU’s temperature hit high when playing Minecraft but not when playing other games like Call of Duty, the case there is probably with the quality of the graphics used or rendered in the game.

When the game’s graphics is set to high, it will put heavy work on the GPU which causes the temperature to rise above normal. But when you set the graphics to normal or low, it will make the GPU work less therefore reducing the temperature generated in the video card.

If you want to lower down the temperature of your GPU, you can set the game’s graphics to normal or low. Test the graphics settings of the game and take note of the GPU’s temperature reading. Use the game’s graphics setting that has a much lower temperature reading. You can also use Game Booster to tweak your system before gaming.

This allows your computer to perform at its optimum speed without generating much heat on the GPU. You can try one of these Game Booster applications:

  • Razer Cortex Game Booster – supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. Does not support Windows XP and Windows Vista.
  • Smart Game Booster – supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10.
