EVGA GTX 570 idle fan issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!

Ive asked around, and spoke to customer service, and no luck so far, so i thought ill go to the oc´ers in search for answers. Although it might be as simple as "your hardware is screwed" which i hope is not the case.

Heres my sit>

Bought brand new components and put them together:

i7-2600k
P8P67 Deluxe rev3
2x2tb sata6g
EVGA GTX 570 stockstandard
4x4gb corsair 1600mhz@1333
600W cooler master silent pro gold
coolermaster elite case

Everything stock standard untouched. Running win7x64 all up to date. Also havent installed any other programs to diagnose stuff or in general havent installed much besides browser, skype and so on. Running precision.

Here is the problem:

Since the beginning, brand new fresh install, the gtx570 acted funny; It reved up to 100% fan (5010 rpms) in frequent intervals although the card was idling, and a bare 30-33 degrees cold. It was doing that before i installed precision and after. Although i could influence the fan speed, it would still rev up in sometimes regular and sometimes irregular intervals, sometimes for longer, sometimes for very short times. Somtimes it seems like its confused, and it revs up like a car about to take off at a set of lights. I clean installed the latest drivers, i installed and reinstalled precision, i also tried afterburner. All the same. A weird thing was this. When i played gta4 on max settings, after i quit the game, after about an hour, the card would run without reving up issues and according to the fan profile. The card also didnt run very hot during GTA, just in the high 50´s just about 60 degrees. I checked the exhaust air and felt the card, and its not that the sensors are telling it that its hot when its not or vice verca, the card wasnt warm, and the exhaust air warm at best.

So, here i am. EVGA service already gave up and said i should send the card in, and i would, if i wasnt in Brazil at the moment, and its an ueber mission. So, maybe someone here knows a trick orso, or might be able to diagnose something...

Thanks a lot, and if you need to know more, drop a post.

You could set fan profile manually in afterburner, but I see you have already tried that with precision in EVGA forums. Better luck with Afterburner maybe?

Might want to try and make your own BIOS set fan speeds and clocks if you want.

Set a custom profile en EVGA precision would be my first choice. If not there was a vBIOS update released a while ago for the video cards to be able to run the fan at 100% (it used to be locked to 85% max before that) you can try running it and see if it helps.
