8800GTX Fan Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok well the vid card in sig rig. An Evga 8800GTX just noticed past week or 2 now that sometimes fan will just stop, temps reach 80-90c on video card idle on desktop. When do a reboot it comes back and is good.

I reinstalled the drivers just incase that was the issue and it happened again. Im prob gonna reinstall windows next but wondering if it sounds like card may be starting to go.

I also have evga percision installed now so next time i see it happens can change fan speed see if that works or what it does.

But what does it sound like to you guys. There is a HR-05 sli/ifx with a fan on it below gpu fan so not sure if that turb is causing the issue but its been like that for wile and this started reciently

Can you upload a pic showing how that HR-05 is sitting below the 8800GTX's fan?

When the PC is booted up, does the fan goes to full speed and then back down?
Does the speed of fan changes when you put a load to the card (eg during gaming)?
When the fan stops, would it come back again? Or, it wont work until a reboot?

I suggest you launch EVGA Precision at bootup. It will then continuously monitor the fan speed and %. When the fan stops, you can examine the past history to look for anomaly.

This could mean the fan (not necessarily the card) is dying. Regardless, it is good to clean the dust out. Blast some compressed air through the heatsink.

Ya i take cover off and do a good cleaning almost monthly. so its always nice clean.. here pic of setup. at bottom left notice small fan to help remove hot air coming outa card actually does good job 2.

But during games let me run some portal2 right quick will see if fan speeds change.

Yup fan speed raises during gaming, and it boots like it normally does and did in past. its just while comp is on it turn off all of a sudden. no pattern i can tell soo far. Power settings are set to turn monitor off after 20min thats it.


EDIT: kk just hapened while surfing net. here is a fun one for ya. set fan speed to 100% with evga percision and fan stopped.. set it to 30% and fan speeds up. do again with gpuz to really see whats happin it confirms. fan speeds get inverted.. this is odd.. think im gonna fresh install windows sounding like best bet.. but what caused it in first place
