Fan control HELP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

I recently ran into a problem when i modded my bios on my GTX670 FTW. For one i didn't backup my factory bios...(face palm!) So i had to download one from TechPowerUp.com but the problem is now that my fan doesn't crank up when temps rise. So at the moment the only solution i could find was to mod the bios to keep the fan at a contestant 60% so i don't fry my card when i'm gaming. I know i can use software to control the fan and i use to when it was OC'd but i don't want to use any of those programs. Any help would be much appreciated.

Are you sure that you downloaded the exact (and correct) gpu BIOS from TPU? If someone posted up an exact image of the correct BIOS from your card, it should have included the right fan profiles as pre-determined by the OEM.

Yeah i was thinking the same thing but i tried a couple others and same thing with those. I'm not sure if it's the exact and correct bios though.. How could i be sure?

Sometimes it can be hard to tell when you're "deciphering" all of the available BIOS versions available at TPU. Just got to pay attention to the naming convention to be sure it agrees with your actual card.

One trick I've used is to find reviews of my video card(s). Many times the reviewer / review site will list the BIOS version that was on the card when they did their review. Then I go and see if that BIOS revision can be matched at TPU.

If I find it at TPU then I'll go ahead and download / flash it.

The other option is to ask someone here if they are running the same card and if they wouldn't mind creating an image of their BIOS and sending it to you.

that and he has to pay attention to the pci subsystem number. he can go to the manufacturers website and tell them he wants the uefi bios and they will give it to him without a question and it will keep his warranty solid.
