My gpu is sitting at 49C idle. I'm not sure if it is high but I see ppl with sub 40 temperature. I have a fan in the back and top pulling air out. A cpu cooler pushing air to the rear fan and the gpu is setup so that there are no other cards below it in the setup. There are no front fans however.
I'm thinking of boosting my gpu fan speed, will this stress the card or just the fan or literally have no effect on the overall health of the gpu?
Well this all depends on what cars you have I haven't seen it anywhere but asumming it's an ago the 4xxx series usually idle pretty high the 5xxx are know to idle at lower Temp but it's really preference but move to 60% fan will not affect your card at all dan speed change is nothing to work at over 80% for extended periods may shorten your fans life bit Ypur be fine at 60
