overclocked 580 fan question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have my GTX 580 overclocked at 954/1908/2100 with my voltage at 1125. I recently updated my graphics card bios on EVGA and unlocked the 100% fan control speed. My question is, is it ok to keep my GPU fan at 100%? I run it most of the day but turn it off at night when I sleep. I mean it sounds like a freaking jet taking off in my computer but that doesn't bother me much since I use headsets when I'm on my computer.

I don't think there should be any problem because the fan was designed to spin at that speed. Although it may die earlier so I would put it at 95% so it lasts a bit longer
