About a week ago I intalled my new XFX 5970 Black Edition graohics card, I'm really happy with it. However this is the first time i've used an ATI card and the Catalyst Control Centre doesn't seem to supprt a manual fan control or temperature monitor. I downloaded GPUZ and under load i'm getting around about 76c however the fan stays at 30%. I thought this would have speeded up. I looked on XFX website and apparently you have to flash the BIOS of the GPU in order for it to provide a manual fan control although if anything goes wrong they won't accept liability. This just cost £490.00 so am reluctant to flash the BIOS. Is the an speed normal or does anyone have any suggestons?
In the drop down menu select ATI Overdrive, there is a tick box for enabling manual fan control.
Other options that provide better control would be setting up a fan speed profile with either ATI Tray Tools or Rivatuner.
