Hello, i need some help from the GPU gurus... I just bought a Gigabyte single fan 1650 ITX card and all is fine, except for one thing... The minimum fan speed is 56%. There is no way to change it. Even MSI Afterburner when you first launch it, it shows 56% on the extreme left of the sliding bar. I can only increase the fan speed (max fan speed is 2955rpm, sounds like an airplane). This 56% produces 1655 rpm, which on an 80mm fan, is noisy. The fan correctly revs up as the GPU heat rises, but never goes lower than 56%. I tried also the "AORUS Engine" program by Gigabyte, which shows 35 as initial value, but doesn't really work either. You can manually only raise the rpm, not lower it.
Now, i 've googled a lot and ironically, i 've found a similar EVGA case:
I 've also contacted Gigabyte support, but it's not like i trust them, so i thought to ask here. Is this "normal"? A BIOS hardlocked value perhaps? Or could it be a defect? I find it odd, that a card that is made to fit very small cases, would be locked to min fan at 56%, which is noisy. UNLESS, they thought that since ITX is small, better give it high RPM to avoid overheating?
I can of course dismantle everything and put on it an arctic accelero L2 plus cooler, since i have one. But i had to ask.
I also found a thread mentioning that sometimes you can edit BIOS to change the values or rpm speed. Is there such a tool that i could use for 1650 (Turing?).
