GeForce GTX 285 Fan Doesn't Throttle Down
May 27, 2009, 8:25 AM
Suddenly realized that the fan of my
EVGA GTX 285
isn't throttling down when I'm not running any games (just surfing, browsing, etc.). Shouldn't the fan slow down when it's not needed? Is this normal?

Either your card fan isn't throttling down immediately to keep the card cool, or you disabled power saving settings in your BIOS.

what i would do is reinstall the videocard drivers using the latest ones. I have had it happen before that my gtx 285s wouldnt clock down at idle and it was jsut a driver hiccup
