Asus GTX DCII Fan and Driver Issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi!

First off, I browse around occasionally and enjoy all the insight this community has to offer.

I have an Asus GTX570 DCII, or CUII, which is this little guy right here.

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA_Series/ENGTX570_DCII2DIS1280MD5/

I have successfully overclocked it to around 950/4000 with stable temps but keep it at 900 at the core just because I am paranoid - I have done this with every tool that seems to work, even the crappy smartdoctor and gpu tweak, but I prefer afterburner. The problem actually has nothing to do with the clocks, or so I believe, but rather the fans.

I have configured a fan curve with each of these programs, along with testing it on auto, but unfortunately my fans always seem to ramp up to 100% every time the card reaches around 74C. They completely ignore whatever setting I have tested with, and even more interestingly in these monitors and utilities the fan speed displays the for example 50% fan speed but the tachometer indeed displays the max. If this isn't clear I will post a screenshot that will better explain it.

I am using 306.24, but have noticed this annoyance for a while now. I cannot put my finger on exactly how long, but I am thinking this is a driver deal.



If anyone has any input on the subject please let me know.
Thanks in advance.




Attached is an nvidia system info - not sure if it will help in any way.

Your not alone, i laos use afterburner set with a custom fan curve at 75c they ramp up. I'm actually impresed with your OC of 900. I can barely get mine to 840 any higher and furmark results in a reboot doing the 15 min 1920x1080 burn in. So im definitely jelly.

Yeah, after about 2 hours of bf3 it may crash for some random reason so I settled on 880 and 4000 just to be extra safe. Unfortunately the jet plane fans ramp up if there is a lot of smoke or particles -_-

The only other thing i can think of is to flash the bios of the card with your custom fan profile. Im thinking it would overwrite whatever is telling the card to hi t100% after a certain temp. That i have no idea how to do though.
