Wireless internet card question.

#1gamesisgoodPosted 10/14/2013 2:52:01 PM
I installed a wireless netwaork card into my pc. ( should have just bought a really long ass ethernet cable ) but the card sits right next to the gpu really close. I imagine this will effect the temperature of my gpu ? is this true ? Ive been playing the bf4 beta and graphics card got up to 70 degrees will taking the wireless card out help ? If so ill just use a really long ethernet cable

70 degrees for a GPU under load is nothing out of the ordinary

It should not affect the temperatures too much unless it really disrupts airflow and effectively blocks air going toward or coming from the GPU

If it is a PCI wireless card, try using a different slot
