XFX 9600 GT, increasing fan speed..

i Installed GPU-Z and found that the fan speed was @ 58% and the idle temp was 70 degrees

Downloaded Riva Tuner v2.24 and increased the Fan speed to 78% Temp did go down a 2 degree's..
Am not sure, if i can pull the fan speed to 100% is it advisable? i did not over clock anything else, just the fan speed.

Full load the GPU goes upto 85 degrees..


PS: Room Temp is around 40 degrees... (All in Celsius) :bounce:

    Clean up the dust,those temps are way up even for a gpu at idle.
  2. Wow 70 on idle???
    I have an XFX 9600GT too and it is 44 degrees idle fan is on 35%. 60 degrees under load fan around 40%
    but I have a slightly different problem, if I let the card reach 70 degrees (which did happen during the summer, the pc just crashed.
    Did you ever take your card apart or something?
  3. Nah Its @ factory condition..
    Right now, i have moved to 5770 HD Ati's. (XFX again)..

    I just wanted to know, as to how high can i change the fan speed!
    The ati is right about 40-50 degrees...
  4. clean your graphics card for dust and buy a new thermal compound
  5. Yeah i vaccumed it..
    But why a thermal compound?
