56C idle is fine! no problem with that. what are your MAX temps? run furmark and see what your temps are.




all 8800GTs DO NOT HAVE VOLTAGE CONTROL. so maybe thats why you cant monitor your voltage. btw download RIVATUNER and check its voltage monitor. its much more accurate than HWmon IMO.
your fan says its at 30%. thats normal. 8800GTs were loud anyway.
btw, do you have the 8800GT with the small heatsink or the full card covering heatsink?
my BFG 8800GT had the full cover and XFX had the small one. the BFG one was much louder than the small one.


have you updated drivers recently?
what driver version are you using? sometimes if drivers are not installed properly the fan will spinn up 100% all the time.

so far, your card seems perfectly fine. my alpha dog idled in the 60s so you are fine.
Enfluenza, thanks for all your suggestions.

I'm not so much concerned that the card is OC'd. Once I get the "bugs" worked out I'm gonna OC it anyway. I'm just curious why it OC'd itself. Makes me think there is an issue with it. There are many things going on that make me think there is an issue with this card.

When I run furmark the temps go up to 70C. Though the speed of the fan does not increase. It starts loud as hell (seems close to 100%) and stays that way regardless of temperature.

I haven't checked the voltage in Rivatuner, I'll try that.

My card is the YDF4 model and has the full cover with the larger fan.

I'm using the most current drivers downloaded from nVidia. 266.something I think. Whatever the newest ones are. I downloaded them a few days ago. I even tried installing some much older drivers to see if that helped. Nope.

The only reason I am concerned about the issues is that I have run this exact card before in an older P55/C2D system of mine. And the card ran fine. No fan issue, no slight OC issue. No little red flame appearing next to the temperature in Speedfan when the card idles at 52C.

It's only in my current system that I am having these issues.

It's driving me nuts cause I like a quiet efficient system and right now it's quirky and loud! haha!

I thought about starting from scratch and reinstalling windows. Maybe there is a bug since before I installed this card I was running the onboard ati 4250 graphics. Maybe a fresh install with the 8800GT in the system might fix the problem. But I'm still not sure if that will fix it cause I don't know if I'm having a windows issue or a vBIOS/BIOS issue.

i dont think a reinstall of windows will help, but if all else fails, its a last resort.
try driver sweeping the ATi 4250 chipset drivers and see if that helps

im thinking that the PWM on the fan isnt working correctly. if its defective you can either RMA it or make your own auto fan profiles in afterburner.

i think the slight OC is the stock speed of all A-dawg 8800GT cards. btw they OC pretty well. i got it to ~680/1728/1000Mhz with my old one.
i miss my 8800GT i almost wish i didnt sell it lol

I ran DriverCleaner Pro and removed all the ati drivers and registry entries.

I've tried to adjust the fan speed in Afterburner, nTune, Speedfan and RivaTuner with no luck.

I've used this same card in an older system (C2D/P55) of mine and had no issues with the slight overclock or locked high speed fan. Everything ran smooth before. Now for some reason I'm having a ton of issues with it. Very disappointing.

alright.
put the card back in the other system just to dbl check that the fan is acting up.
if its fine in the other rig, then it HAS to be your MB.
try flashing new BIOS. if that fails, then idk what else to do lol.

I don't have the old system anymore unfortunately. I have flashed the bios a few times, with each rev that was available for my card. It was all the same results.

I think it is a setting in my motherboard bios but I can't figure for the life of me which setting.
