Zotac GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Fan Profile. Help, please.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello. I just picked up a Zotac 980 Ti Amp! Extreme and it is idling around 46c, or so. I have read that is normal for this card, but can be lowered with a program like Afterburner.

I dowloaded Afterburner and I am wondering if someone can help me with a fan profile. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thank you in advance for your response.

That is normal behavior for that card for no fan rotation until 50c, I had one a while back.

On the right lower corner of Afterburner Click ''settings'' tab and then click on ''fan'' tab to set your fan profile. In fan settings remember to click tab on upper left corner that says ''enable user defined automatic fan control''. Then click ''ok''

Thank you. Do you know a good fan curve? How did you like this card overall? I was going to go for a 1070 extreme, but I was able to pick this up for $380 with an extended warranty.

Here is screenshot of what I use. I run the same profile with 1080amp extreme as I did with 980ti amp extreme.

Thank you very much for that screen. That will help.

I game at 1080p@60. Do you think that 980 Ti will be good for a while, should I still try to go for a 1070? I only ask because you said you had it at one time.

Hey your welcome thumb.gif

1080p@60 with your 980ti will be just fine, I ran 1440p with your card and did ok-could maintain 60fps or above in many titles.
