EVGA GTX 570 - Good to have fan at 85% constantly?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I have a EVGA GTX 570 and I'm wondering (disregarding all sound issues and loudness) is it bad to keep the fan running at 85% constantly. Forever, like web browsing, gaming, typing a word document? Always at 85% speed.

I see no problem if you can tolerate the noise, those fans are durable so running them at 85% won't damage them

Hm I also kinda noticed a little tick here and there seems like my fan could be rattling or something? I was playing around with the fan automatic settings and it seemed like when it was ramping up to different speeds it would make a tick sound. And when I shake my computer slightly I hear the ticking fairly often. Any ideas?

Well that does sound like an unbalanced fan. Are you sure it isn't hitting something? Also make sure there aren't any wires hitting the fan casue that can make ticking sounds too

I just opened up my comp, did some wire management and EVERYTHING is cleared from all fans in my comptuer. No wires are near them, im 100% sure nothing is touching the fan at this point. Its either my video card or power supply fan is rattling. I'm a little more inclined to think its the video card now that it does it when Im changing the fan speeds.

EDIT: Nvm I'm hearing things. I just changed my fan speeds a few times and not hearing it anymore. This has been like boggling my mind since i bought the computer. Something is rattling/touching fans/I DONT KNOW!!!! It also happens when I shake my foot near the computer on the ground to kinda vibrate it.

In that case I'd ask EVGA what they think about it because I sure wouldn't want to hear any ticking sounds from my fans. Not only it is annoying but you never know if the fan will die beacuse of it. I suggest hitting EVGA support (they have great support so they will answer for sure) and ask what can be done about it

Missed your edit biggrin.gif

Just check for loose wires and vibrating case fans...those can make weird noises too. Also don't rattle the case too much your HDDs won't like that biggrin.gif

Not sure why you would want it at a constant 85%?

There is programs like Nvidia System tools that will throttle the fan based on the temperature.

Well I'm worried now. I made a fan profile on MSI afterburner one day, started playing BF3 and I didn't realize the fan profile didn't work and my video card over heated and shut down my comp. Now I'm really scared that it wont work and I may forget and have it happen again...

I hope I didn't really damage it by overheating it once like that...

Does MSI afterburner have to be on for the profile to work? I had it set so it uses the profile when windows boots up.

This is one.

I use MSI Afterburner and set up a cooling profile. If you click the settings button, then fan, you can manually adjust at what temperatures the fan speed ramps up.

For instance, with my 4870's I have them set so anything below 60C the fan will run @ 30%. Between 60 and 67C, it'll ramp up mildly to 54%, but once it hits 68C it'll ramp up more aggressively eventually getting to 100% fan speed by 74C. With this setup my temps never exceed 72C even with both GPUs' at 100% load.

It'll look something like this:

Soemtimes MSI afterburner will load up completely before the driver is done loading up. All you have to do at that point is click on the Afterburner icon in the taskbar, once it pops up, click on the "User define" button twice. (Once turns it off, the secodn time turns it back on).
