5870 and MIS AB

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if I turn off my MSI After Burner if the Fan settings i set for certain temps still change my fan speeds. I dont need to monitor the temps because they are always fine and well i just want to make sure the fan profile still works.

This right here.

Well if you know your idle and load temps currently for the GPU during gaming, try running a copy of Hardware Monitor in the background.

Give this a whirl:

1. Start up hardware monitor (or any other .exe that can monitor gpu temp min/max/mean) and MSI afterburner.
2. Start gaming or benchmarking or whatever you do stress your card.
3. Close out of game or benchmark.
4. Check your max/min/avg temps on your GPU with MSI running (some of these programs have an option to record the temps to a text file, I would suggest this)
5. Now Close out of MSI afterburner, and keep HWmonitor running.
6. Start up another gaming session, or benchmark.
7. Get the GPU rip snortin hot again. Turn off game/benchmark.
7. Compare temps without MSI running.

You should know rather quickly if your profile is still active.

Hope this helps,
Mike
