Gfx artifacting, but no overclocking

Just got a new nforce2 board, reinstalled XP over the top, etc
but now i get serious glitchs in Bf1942, and i aint got anything overclocked

pics > http://homepage.ntlworld.com/i.j.stuart/bf

now ive noticed the back of the vid card, directly behind core, is red hot nearly

and the chipset on the mobo (epox 8rda3+) has a heatsink only, which is also red hot.

heat be the cause?

anyother ideas?

cheers


update:
pc stats etc

Default clock speeds for everything
XP2500+
EPoX EP-8RDA3+
2x PC2700 Ram, twinmos and cruical 512meg atm
Audigy2
Ti4200P Turbo Albatron
Aero7+ heatsink

not noticed any issues in other games, but atm only have halflife installed.

there was a glitch or two on the 3dmark2k3 test when the trolls are all jumping off the top of a building and doing somersaults downwards

using latest nforce and det's
1.45? and 43.45 ? respectively

Welcome to AOA Forums, acstua!

I've always put fans on GPU's that come without one. To do it right, the heatsink should be removed, lapped and reinstalled correctly. Removing the GPU's heatsink can be hazardous to the graphics processor's health. If you'd rather not pull it off, just putting a decent fan on it ain't a bad idea.

lo 2 u too

nah u misread me, the card has a big old copper heatsink n fan.

the motherboard chipset just had a passive cooling device (heatsink..)
its now got a fan on it too.

ive even underclocked this card by 100mhz on core n mem and still same problems.
