I have an MSI 470, and (it seems) during use of HWmonitor, the fan spike to 100% for some fraction of a second then drops down to normal, but i have never seen it stop the fan completely, nor seen any temps above 86c.

Software: HWmonitor, Afterburner w/ custom fan profile

Will see if the fan spike issue is related to HW monitor, ill get back to you guys.

Wonder if this happens to ATI cards, has I just had a thermal shutdown while gaming about 10min ago. Could be some kind of crazy incompatibility?

Using HWmonitor?

I have just done some gaming, without having HWmonitor on, and there were no fan spikes nor fan stoppage, though i have not experienced the fan stopping, and the fan spikes seemed random, not dependent on being in game or not. Certainly could be due to HWmonitor, im going to limit my use of the program for the time being though.

I noticed that this happens with anything based around CPUID, such as CPU-Z, or in my case, EVGA E-LEET.

I never had this problem running my 5770 or my 5770s in crossfire.

It may be an incompatibility between HWmonitor and other monitoring software (like afterburner (riva), or gpu-z as I run those two also. It is not a compatibility with speedfan as I tested that.
