GPU Fan too loud under Windows 8

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just bought an Nvidia 620 card today. I run both Linux and Windows on my system. When I go to Linux, everything work fine. But in Windows 8, the GPU fan start to scream. Its too noisy! I even updated the drivers. What might be the problem?

I just installed the proper drivers for Ubuntu and the fan started to scream like in Windows If I set the speed in Windows using afterburner, will it effect Linux?

Thank you very much. I contacted Nvidia and they said the card is defective an told me to replace it. If that doesn't work I will try this smile.gif

Around 42 - 45 C. I just took it back to the store and they opened another new card and checked. Same issue. It might be an issue with the whole product line. I got a refund and bought an Asus GT 640 card! Its really silent! smile.gif
