I've bought Gigabyte 7970 GHz (3x windforce) and updated bios to it's newest version but I still thing that this card is too loud.
Using MSI Kombustor it has had around 70 celsius degrees and 85% of max fan speed.
I have tried to set manualy fan speed to 55% and this temperature went up to 85 degrees so I think is not too much. With 55-60 % fan speed it was a lot quieter.
Is there any way to improve fan speed controller? Maybe there is a better bios from other reference 7970?
Thank you and please forgive me if I wrote something wrong, I'm not nativ
Try to lower the FAN speed with a temperature no more than 70C at full usage. If that doesn't work for you try cleaning it's FAN or buy a new cooling solution. 7970 is a loud card but great when you spend $25 for a extra cooling solution.
