Not sure what the issue is, however, I noticed that the fan on my new GTX 275 would Stop in the middle of an intense game or when it reaches a temperature over 95C. Obviously this leads to it getting over heated. This seems to happen whenever I have the automatic fan settings enabled in Nvidia's Ntune Utilities. I have since manually set the fan at 80 - 90 percent whenever I start playing any games and that seems to help prevent the fan from stopping. Is this normal? has anyone else had this problem?

I am using a BFG GTX 275 OCE and never had that problem. Then again I am not using the Nvidia Ntune stuff... all by default. Try uninstalling this software maybe, setting everything to default? If it fixes the problem, then you know this was the problem.

Hope this helps

Yes, uninstall that Ntune thing. It seems like it's detecting your temperatures wrong and messing up your fan readings. Use RivaTuner if you want to use manual fan settings. Other than that, just allow the card automatically adjust your fan speed.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I uninstalled Ntune and ran a few games... Seems to be okay. I will continue to monitor and update everyone when I fine the actual cause of the problem.

Regards.
