Zotac gtx670 amp! Fans not working after TIM re-apply

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello there...
Couple a days ago since I receive my new gtx670 and had this problem:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1293413/psa-attention-zotac-gtx-680-670-amp-edition-users


I had already one gtx670 (gigabyte oc) and my temps never exceed 70c.
The fans of zotac even at full speed couldn't hold temps under 80c on ugine valley benchmark.
So I decide to re-apply new thermal paste (pk-3) and add the washers as suggested.

Then a strange thing happened. The card works fine but the fans is not spinning. I checked the fans with external 12V and there is nothing wrong with them.
I tried ugine valley (had to use 120mm from the motherboard to cool the VGA) and the cards runs without any problem.
I have no idea why this could happened?
Can anyone knows what caused that?
Have anyone to suggest something?
Thanks.....

i am not a fan of cards returning but this is a prob zotac knows already=
read here=http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/zotac/geforce_gtx_670_amp_edition/

so your card with auto fan hits circa 100°??

only suggestion=try without washer again and check fan cable(put back in the right direction)but i think you have done this already

My card out of the box hits 93c on ugine valley bench....my other gtx 670 hits 73 with the same bench.....
I would RMA the card if I didn't strip it out remove the fans, add my thermal paste etc. Propably I will have problem with RMA.
Anyway the card works (beside the fans) perfectly......but I had to improvise.
