Would it be unsafe to put GPU fan speed at 50% 24/7?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What I mean is, would it be okay to leave my GPU fan speed at 50% while I play high end video games? Right now I have a 5770 with 900mhz Core Clock and 1250mhz Memory Clock.

Should I leave fans on auto or would 50% forever burn out my card? I just hate the loud noise my GPU makes when gaming.

I generally keep my fans on my cards at the 50-55% range to keep the temps down...I have done so with my CFed 4890s and my 5850s... doing it with my 6950s now... would rather have cooler temps than burn out the card...and if the fan goes...Get a aftermarket cooler then...

Shouldent be a problem, I left my GFX card running at 100% fan speed whilst I was at a LAN Party for 2 day's straight.

HWMonitor showed that it was running at about 5570RPM and within 2 days it dropped to about 5525RPM, so I might of streesed it out a little

use msi afterburner and set a custom fan profile that increases fan speed as temperatures increase.
