6800gs fan/cooling...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
awhile back i wanted to silence my pc up a bit more,and most of the noise comes of the 6800gs fan,so i was told to get rivatuner and just set the fan speed lower,but i cant seem to moniter the temperture (or at least can find the option in riva tuner,was with ati before now),anyone know away to find the temp's or the safest setting/lowest possible for the fan,as i don't fancy roasting the card

i was pretty sure there was a faq with some info on this but i can't seem to find it,so anyone could link me to it i would be greatful,

i have my 6800GS set with rivtuner as below:
2D standard - 25% fan power
low 3D - 55% fan power
high 3D - 100% fan power

To check your temps right click your desktop and go to properties...in properties go to settings, click advanced, then press the ge force 6800GS tab, press temperature monitoring and it will tell you your temp and threshold setting. threshold should be about 125 degrees celcius not sure how much in farenheit.
