GeForce GTX 275

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Are they noisy at stock ? I have had my head in my case a few times trying to determine if it's the card or my stock cooling i7 (older one)

I know it's not my other fans as i have turned them off and it still purrs like a tank, Annoying when trying to watch something.

What happens if you use a program like precision to turn down the fan on the card? Does the sound you describe go away or dampen? Have you tried cleaning the card out recently?

yes, they're pretty noisy at stock. I installed EVGA Precision and turned the fan way down, it was still noticeable but wasn't nearly as bad. I think the default settings for the fan was somewhere around 65%-75% fan speed, and at stock speeds I never needed the fan to go over 40%. So download EVGA Precision (or MSI Afterburner) and it'll give you a nice little GUI to adjust clock speeds and fan speeds. Turn down the fan speed and you should be just fine. You will definitely hear the GPU fan over the stock Intel fan, mine certainly didn't make very much noise at all smile.gif

Noisy is almost purely subjective. Check your fan speed with EVGA Precision
