A few weeks back my MSI N770 lightning's fans started spiking for no reason even when my computer was on idle. Here's a SS from my Afterburner readout: http://imgur.com/os4vFI0
The Nvidia drivers in SS are an old version as I was trying to see if rolling back my drivers would work, but no matter which version I use (including the latest one) the problem still persists. Have never overclocked my video card.
I've tried also:
- Checking the card/fans for dust build up and reconnecting the power supply to the fans.
- Different settings on Afterburner, turning off auto fan control, turning on user fan profile, setting the fan speed at 100% and then back, setting everything to it's lowest possible value.
- Uninstalling and reinstalling Nvidia Drivers. Uninstalling all the extra Nvidia stuff (HD audio/3D etc.) leaving just the video card drivers. Rolling back to older drivers.
My System Specs:
Windows 7 64-bit
8GB RAM (Corsair vengeance)
If anyone has experience with this problem or know what I should do, your advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time.
