fan longer ramping up on amd 6950

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My fan on my xfx 6950 will no longer go past 20% fan speed and has a low RPM of 1048...

I have tried blowing out dust, different drivers, third party fan profiles, everything I can think of or found on the net nothing works......(other than take the card apart)....anyone experience this before? should I rma, etc?

I'm just gonna take your word on it that you tried everything. How about re installing Windows, or at least testing it on a temporary partition with a clean install, with your fan control and see if that works, if not then RMA it.

You don't have the fan on manual by accident or something right?

I run the fan on Manuel with presets so even if I manually adjust it it doesn't ramp up stays at 20%.

I also have 2 6950 cards....powercolor and an xfx... tried them both independently and only the powercolor is allowing me to change fan speed. I also tried installing the card in my freshly made backup rig with a new windows install and no such luck.
