This does not appear in the Afterburner interface itself, as you have to go into "settings" to see the fan having been unchecked. Bah. Scary business.
Additionally I believed that the fan profile were loaded upon boot, like the other oc settings, but obviously MSI Afterburner do not start up the fan profile until you launch the app. Even closing the app will turn off the fan profile. I will therefore, until potential future changes, start up Afterburner with the OS and keep it in the tray. Just hope I didnt already fry something last night.
Well my problem was that after I manually set it to 75% and let it sit idle it started downspinning. But while it was under load it was fine. Is that what happened to you?
Or when you closed AB it didn't ramp?
I accidentally set the fan to 40% fans the first night and ran Heaven with stock clocks. And it ended up hitting 85*. :O But it's been running rock solid since then so I'm assuming these things can take the heat.
I hate how long it takes for EVGA to get me my damn backplate and high airflow bracket.
UPS Ground is soooooooooooo slow. The damn thing is a few towns away sitting in a warehouse waiting for the 5th day.
