Problem with GTX 960 fanless mode when put to sleep.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just got a gigayte g1 gtx 960. Like all the maxwell GPU's it has the fanless technology where it doesnt turn the fans on until like 62C or like 60 watt power draw. I also have geforce experience doing a breathing effect on the windforce logo. When I put my computer to sleep, the logo stops p[pulsing which i kinda expect to happen however the lights that indicate it is in fanless mode turn off and the fans boot up. Is it shutting down the driver that allows it to go at 0 RPM on the fans? anyway I can keep them not spinning when I sleep my computer? thanks!

Fans should shut off in S3 state. On a reference card anyways, I dunno about yours. Is anything else awake when you put your PC to sleep?

The whole fan situation is a mess, they seriously need more options in the BIOS. If they are worried about people blowing up their cards, then give us some profiles we can set at the very least. The "Silent" mode is probably the least useful of all.
