High fanspeed bad?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I use the EVGA overclocking tool and flashed my bios to allow my fan speed from 30%-100%. My question is, having your fan speed always at a high number 75%+, could it damage or be bad for the card? I have an EVGA gtx 580 3gb. We are talking about keeping it always set to that speed, not on auto.

Not really.

However, you're the second person that flashed their BIOS to simply adjust fan speed. Why dont' you use MSI Afterburner and just create a fan profile?

IT's simple as can be and you can set it so it starts with windows and you never have to worry about it.

NOTE: Occasionally MSI AB loads up before the driver and you might have to click the "User define" button in AB for it apply the fan profile.

why would you take it off auto? Yes, it is bad. You will wear out the bearing inside the fan and have to replace it because of the noise it will cause. Just create a fan profile and bump the fan speed to 100% when the temps get near 90+

No, not at all. But it is likely unnecessary, and those little fans can be a bit loud. MSI Afterburner has an option to let you create and switch between custom fan profiles, which I use. It's very easy, just set one for normal use, and another one to peg it at 100% for benching sessions or such things.

=/ Evga is the brand of my card so I decided to use their software. Not to big of a problem for me. What fanspeed do you recommend I keep it at? I use the g930 headset so I don't care about sound. I run around 33-40c idle and 60-70c load. When I play at night with the windows open, I run 20-30c idle, and haven't tested load yet. I usually keep the fan speed at 60%.

if you are 70 degrees under load, there is no reason to change anything. 70 is far below its safe opp temperature.

You say that but remember his fan speed is at 60%

MSI afterburner and Evga precision are basically the same program with a different name. Although, I believe that MSI afterburner has more features than precision. That's why I switched to it. Besides, I don't even own an MSI video card. tongue.gif

Regardless, click the settings button and then click on fan. There you can create your own custom fan profile. i.e. at what temperature does the fan start ramp up its speed.

Here's the profile that I made for my ATi gpus' and it seems to works very well.

i've been using EVGA's precision software for a while now too, but I knew MSI afterburner had the profiles I wanted to be able to setup.. Good to know it's universal enough to work on all kinds of vid cards. I'll most likely be switching. Thanks..
