20% fan speed possible with GTX 680?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My room is freezing (I can bear it), resulting in an idle gpu temp of 20 - 23c. The current 30% idle fan speed is obviously higher than required so I'm wondering if there is a way to adjust it any lower? I'm trying to minimize dust intake.
I think I remember attempting to before and finding I couldn't, however I don't want to mess with it if the fan is not designed to run sub 30% speed.

There are other programs but i prefer msi afterburner and the fan curve on that program.Its under settings/fan, check the box and select your fan speeds its that easy. Idk about a minimum fan speed for that card specifically,but mine is 20% stock.

Yes there are multiple programs for that, some are easy others are more difficult. I prefer to use EVGA Precision X it works with pretty much every card no matter who makes it (I have a PNY GTX 470 and it works fine) Like mentioned above there is also MSI afterburner, I don't know it much at all so whether or not it will work with cards other than MSI made ones I'm not sure. Anyways Precision and Afterburner both have fan curve programs in it, so you can set the fan speed to go up by temperature.

yes afterburner works with cards other than msi. they are pretty much the same, a riva tuner based program. I used afterburner even with my evga cards because it was easier . but they are the same program with different interface.
