Adjusting fan speed Permanently

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My card always stuck at 30% fan speed for some reasons. I suspect it might be the bios related problem.

Yes. I can change the fan speed via Rivatuner, but that's after my PC finished booting to Windows Desktop.
The problem is my PC takes long time to finish booting. Afterward, from the temperature monitor I notice that my card always heated up to 65 degree during the booting process. Which is not good.

I want my fan spin at higher default rate as soon as I press the power button on my PC case. Can anyone help me?

65C is fine for the card..... If you want to permanently set, you have flash the BIOS.
Once again...

So? I accidentally "de-autoed" the fan speed controller and booted the PC with Folding@Home GPU client on startup and left the room. I come back 1 hour later to find the GPU at 85C. No big deal. These things are known to withstand temps of over 110C without damage.

Way higher than the CPU caps.

The problem is that crappy MSI vendor does not supply bios update for their customers.

Is there any other ways to set the fan thought bios?

60-70 degree is totally fine for a graphic card, i got a 8800GTX and it used to run at 90+ degree all day no problem.

as for speed fan speed adjustment the river tuner can do it, when you choose your speed click the "apply fan settings at start up" then click save then apply. now re start and see what happen. this works for me like a champ.

As I said in my first post. Rivatuner cannot Permanently reset the fan speed.

Even if I apply the "start up" setting it can only start to change the fan after Vista completely booted up. plus, my PC takes ages to do so.
Adjusting bios might be the only way. But how?

By the way. 90 degrees scares me.
Since everyone's hardware and situations are different. Some members in Nzone forum already reported that their cards loss performance permanently after their card heated up to 80 or 70.
I really need to be careful with these temperature issue.

My card has gotten to just over 100C with stock cooling when the fan is set to auto while playing Crysis. It's still perfectly fine. (Though when it hit 100C it did throttle to a faster fan speed and lower the frequency.) GPUs are supposed to be between 40C - 90C. Right now my 8800GT is idling at 58C with a fan mod below it.

GPUs are not like CPUs. They have completely different temperature ranges.
