    I've been having problems trying to play wasteland 2 I think the unity engine is pushing the textures too high or something, I try to lower settings and it only helps a little I am still at high gpu temp now there is no FPS drops or anything I just don't want to play at 85-90c for hours I am using HWmonitor and MSI afterburner which both are showing my gtx 960 going at 90c and I can hear the fans kick on only does this for this game, I tried witcher 3 on high details and got 77-83c after playing it for 2 hours.


    specs are
    Core i5 3300@ 3.2ghz
    8gb ram
    Asus strix gtx 960
    430w EVGA psu

    Settings for the game are
    1920x1080
    high settings by default "good textures" in settings
    no shadows
    2x AA
    MSAA off
    vsync on

    Lower the temperature target and make the fan curve more aggressive

    What do you mean? Can you explain how to do that for my gpu because I don't want to burn it out when I turn the fan s off.

    Use msi afterburner and set a more aggressive fan profile that targets a lower temp.
