While watching some Youtube videos last night, my GTX670 fans just ramped up in speed and have been "stuck" so to speak since as it sounds as if I have my fans spinning at 70% or more. I haven't played games lately for a couple of months now due to my research project work and there should've been no major stress really to the card to even warrant such fan speeds.

I've flashed to a different BIOs and installed 301.xx, 306.xx and even the 310 betas but to no avail with clean installs. According to Afterburner, it says my fans are spinning only at 32% which is completely wrong as it sounds as if it's 70% at the minimum. I can adjust the fan to different speeds so that they can spin faster and louder but I can't get it below this noisy threshold. If I leave my computer idle for a few hours, the fans may ramp down but it may ramp up randomly again with usage. One thing I noticed is that the fan tachometer reading is usually consistent but in Afterburner, it's been fluctuating between 1200 and 1230 if it matters but I'm confident it's spinning much faster than that. GPU-Z reports the fan tachometer the same way. Fluctuating at 1200 and 1230 but fan speed is 32% although it sounds as if it's set mujch higher. Has anyone encountered a similar problem?

The ripples is the oscillating report of 1200 and 1230RPM for the fans.
