Greetings TH forums, I am a fair-weather reader and first time poster,
I recently purchased N570GTX Twin Frozr III
by MSI. This card is a monster, and I love it so far - but i've noticed some odd fan behavior when monitoring in afterburner. The fan speed seems to spike if the GPU temp exceeds 34 °c.
I am not running any gpu intensive applications when this is occurring, and I was wondering if perhaps I had set something incorrectly in the afterburner program itself, as I fear that this kind of fan-speed spiking could be bad for the long-term health of the card. http://i.imgur.com/S2D14.png
That's a quick snap of an example, here's another...http://i.imgur.com/M35O8.png
I am a complete noob when it comes to overclocking, or the intricacies of hardware in general - any advice or help would be appreciated.
