Ok, question about my card. - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Is there a way to turn up the powers of the fans in the CM case? The 6970's fan starts to sound extremely loud at 50%, do I need to hear this thing go up, down, up down with noise? I don't get this. This is the THIRD card I have had in the same system, and every single one is loud, unstable fan, buzzing. I'm starting to think something else is interfering almost. Maybe I'll let this card die eventually and go Nvidia next time, not impressed with Radeon.

No, it's not overclocked, it runs at stock 880 and 1375. The airflow is fine, I've told you the case I have, and it's not up against a wall or anything. ugh, this is driving me nuts, I'm thinking of taking this machine back and demanding a refund on the whole thing.

What temp monitor do you recommend? The guy said when he fixed it, the OHW Monitor I was using wasn't accurate.

Do you mind if I take a pic of the inside of my case, and you guys can tell me if it looks all fine?

Yes, please do that. I use either MSI AB or Gpu-Z, they both give me the same temp values. Try them both and copare. Can you also point out which fans are blowing in, and which are blowing out. Bottom, side and front fans should always be in, top and back fans should exhaust.

I'll get the pics once I get my bro's camera, he ain't here. Anyways though, the temps are much much better with Vsync on, its like the card needs to utilize all that 100 fps in DS and overwork itself....As for the fans, if they re in the wrong position, would I need to open the case and adjust them?

If you bought the PC prebuilt, just find out if it is going to void the warrenty, otherwise just do it yourself. Also check how they attached it to the box, some people use push pins that you have to break. Where are the fans situated and how do they blow, in other words, if you put your hand over it, does it blow, or suck air
