Problem with 3D Video Card

By The Hive ·
hello. I have an NVIDIA M64/32 mb which I would like to install on the AGP slot of my legacy motherboard which is Intel LX 440 Pentium II(wiring board identification number is 35-8800-03). I noticed a significant accumulation of heat to the NVIDIA video card even for just a short period of time. My original video card is Trident 3D Image 975 (4 mb) which had no problems at all. What are the issues on this? thanks in advance.

how is the air flow in your case? Does the NVidia card have a fan attatched? If so, is it plugged in?
Have any errors occured, even when the system has been running for some time?

There is a vacant space for an additional exhaust fan in my pc's case. No, my NVidia doesn't have a fan, only a heatsink is attached. I'm afraid on the risk of overheating either my board or the video card if I leave it running any longer. Somebody had suggested that I may underclock my video card since my motherboard may not be supporting the speed? of the video card.

The video cards do run hot. You can purchase and install a slot fan that will keep the card cool enough. The heat won't really effect the other conponents or the motherboard. If you got any places for extra cooling fans I'd get those as well.
