Dumb question time: Possible to turn 750ti fan speed below 40%?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So just got an EVGA 750ti (this one) to throw into a low power mini ITX gaming rig, and the fan on the card is the loudest thing in the system, which is otherwise inaudible.

Is there any way to turn the fan speed down below 40% without flashing the BIOS? This thing doesn't need an idle fan speed that high, and I would like to have it a bit quieter if possible. I see no obvious way to do this in Afterburner.

Sorry; edited my post too slowly! If there is a way for Afterburner to do it, it is not obvious and I can't figure it out (there are yellow dotted lines at the 40% mark on the user-defined fan curve)

My gut feeling is that it would take a BIOS flash to fix this, but hopefully someone knows something I don't

Probably will take a flash.

If you manually set the slider in AB, can you go below 40%?

It's the same way with my 780s. Even if you tell Afterburner to set it below 40%, it won't do it.

What are the odds I could use one of my various Noctua low noise adapters on the fan?

Slim to none, at best.
GPU fans use a smaller connector.

I'll try it, but I've never known Precision (or any other GPU tweak program) to succeed where Afterburner has failed.

I had a lot of good luck with EVGA precision. I prefer it over anything.

Did you leave the fan speed set to auto in Afterburner? I think it can go lower than 40% at idle if set to auto. It's been a while since I've messed with it as my GPUs don't have fans on them, but I thought I remembered the build I did for some one getting louder when I set the fan speed to 40% from auto.
