Solved Fan speed help Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Fan Speed Overclocking Last response: November 22, 2011 3:44 PM in Overclocking Share PCgamer81 November 20, 2011 2:39:01 AM I am overclocking my 6970, and when the GPU get's to a certain temp - it doesn't happen on all games - the game freezes. I generally cannot OC past 920/1440. Now, I notice that the fan speed (which is set to auto in overdrive) never really goes above 35%, allowing my GPU to get too hot and shut down. I tried to use rivatuner, but my drivers - which are new - are not compatible. Precision doesn't work, either. So, my question is, what would be a good manual fan speed that would keep my GPU cool, while still being a safe speed?

And I have a pair of headphones so I don't really care about the noise. Also, you said cpu - did you mean gpu?
