    My video card obviously overheats while i play league of legends.
    Anyone could help? it seemd to start after i started using msi afterburner. I was going to use this for recording but i cant even get it work properly, ive tried every tutorial i find and nothing helps.

    the point issue is not the recording, it is the overheating. I have not overclocked or anything, i dont know if this program did on its own but i have never ever overheated my videocard when playing league of legends (this started 3 days ago when i first got this program)

    could someone help me?

    This program is known to do evil things on its own without user's help. It is strongly recommended to avoid using it.

    well how the hell is this getting fixed? do i just remove the program?

    EDIT:
    Why do someone make this kind of program if its not good to be used.
    I just want this fixed so i could play league of legends again

    Turn your fan speed up.

    What do you consider to be too hot?

    If your card is too hot with fan speed up, it needs better cooling.
    Its nothing to do with Afterburner unless you have used Afterburner to:
    1) set a lower fan speed
    2) use higher clocks and/or voltage

    but either of those are easily fixed.

    Make sure the airflow inside your case is strong enough, blows in the right direction and is unrestricted.
    Use a case side fan to blow on the gfx card.
    Make sure the room isnt too warm.
    Keep the PC away from heat sources like radiators.
    Make sure that warm air from the PC isnt allowed to circulate back into the PC.

    Failing that, try using lower clock speed and reduce the voltage to the GPU.
    Failing that, remove the heatsink and change the cooling paste on the GPU.

    Well the thing is, my video card or cpu NEVER overheated before i got this program :) thats why i thought that this program changes the fan speeds or it changes the clocking thingies to make this overheat.

    If you tell it to change things, it will.
    If you dont, it wont.
    Its impossible to help you when you give us no information to go on.

    You said this:
    "I was going to use this for recording but i cant even get it work properly, ive tried every tutorial i find and nothing helps."

    How are we supposed to help?
    We dont even know what temps you are getting, I asked you in my last post but that didnt spur you on either.

    My card have not ever heated up like this, this startedafter afterburner came to my computer like i told u already. i didnt change any settings it is default settings which the program chose itself after restart.
    Ive increased the fan speed but i never had to use it higher before because i didnt have this overheating issue.
    I dont have any idea about the clocks or voltages, ive not touched those myself & i do not know if the program has changed those, ive never wanted to "overclock" or anything.

    You're on your own mate.
    You wont even give us the basic information to help you.

    Its very easy for you to test without using afterburner to see if your problem starts when it is running.
    I think you are trolling.

    It was a sarcasm, genius. I develop this program to help people. Those who come here with "I didn't touch anything and this program did something bad to my pc" have only one recommendation: remove it and never touch such kind of applications in future.

    This is tantamount to shooting yourself in the foot and blaming the weapon.

    Clean your gpu first. I've used msi afterburner and it works fine
