Afterburner Fan Control

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had a fairly normal fan curve for my HIS 5770 IceQ5 set up, but recently the GPU fan starts to make a fast ticking sound between 35% and 50%.
Is it wise to set the fan curve to "jump" that range?
I set it to pretty much ramp up to 50% right after it hits 35%.
I'm going to pull out the fan and check the lube on the sleeve soon, but could I just leave the speeds this way for a while without any troubles?

It wont hurt the fan no to JUMP up in speed no..
The tick you speak of, can you locate it?
On my last card's Twin Frozr II cooler. I found it to be the fan vibrating against the heatsink. I put a rubber ring between the two and voila' ticking at 46% fan GONE !!

Agree with Capwn that adjusting your fan curve to avoid hearing the ticking sound will cause no harm if not left that way for too long.

If it were me, I'd try to find the souce of the ticking asap, and get it fixed. Just because things like that bug me until I get it fixed.
