Zotac GTX 780 Ti fan speed throttles to 100% with Nvidia Driver

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi to all , I just upgraded my rig from an Evga GTX 580 to a Zotac 780 Ti OC edition. I am facing an issue where the two fans at the end of the card throttle to 100% constantly at idle temp of around 25 - 29 deg celsius. The fan in the middle seems to be a pwm fan and is used in case of excessive heat.

When I uninstall the Nvidia drivers the fans instantly speed down to 30% and are not even audible. I re install the drivers and the speed of the fans rev up to 100% , just like that.

I cannot understand why the drivers are affecting the speed of the fans , I tried using zotac's firestorm, msi afterburner and evga precision to try and take control of the fans but to no use, the fans remain at 100%

I also noticed that LED visualizer in geforce experience does not detect the rpm speed of the fans.

Can anyone help me out please , I really cannot understand why this is happening iam really confused....
Thanks for your help...

Sounds like failure fan sensor, you may try to RMA it smile.gif I guess it is not quite big problem. Only fan speed ramp up to 100% right? And not GPU or other components issue.

You're welcome edd, btw happy new year 2015 smile.gif
Good, I guess it won't be long for the RMA, looks like they will only replace the fan but we have to wait and hear what zotac tell/say about this issue.

Well have you sent it for RMA, edd080? What did they say, I wonder smile.gif I think there is 2 option, first : they will replace only the fan with new fan and second : they will replace the unit (card+fan).

Hi, yes sent the card by mail yesterday to the vendor well actually if they find that there is a fault i opted for a replacement of the card so i will have to wait and see how it goes, since i managed to try the card on a friend's pc and it had the same behaviour I suppose that they will replace it for me.
Will let you know smile.gif

Hi Neoroy so I received a new card yesterday, the vendor found the card to be faulty and they sent me a brand new one (same make and model); tried it out and I dont have the issue any more so it must have been related to the thermal sensor of the fans on the previous card i presume.
Anyway all is fine now thumb.gif
