I have a question about the following card.
MSI GeForce 8600GTS OC 256MB
I have it a family PC now, and it performs just fine, but the fan runs at a constant 100% speed, and is loud.
I notice there's another fan header, which I tried using (I think this gives the fan less voltage?). This successfully slowed and quieted the fan... until the drivers were installed and the fan completely stopped!
I've sparingly looked into it before and heard rumors that you need an MSI motherboard to control/lower fan speed. Is that true? Is there a way to lower the fan speed otherwise, and if not, why as such a design decision made?
Thanks in advance!
