Hey friends, i just got a new galaxy gt 220 card for my computer and the fan on it is very unpredictable. When my computer is booting up or in idle sleep mode, the videocard fan is very loud. The weird thing is when im in windows doing anything from playing games or running programs the cards fan is very quiet. I think this means windows is controlling the fan speed but once windows takes a nap my card starts screaming. Is there anything i can do to make this card always quiet besides change the bios sleep setting to s3? thank you
i played a few minutes of counter strike source and the fan speed and rpm didnt change but the card temp went up to 51 with the gpu usage at 98%. the thing is im not complaining about the noise level when im using the computer, its when it goes into sleep mode or is booting up that for some reason it becomes twice as loud.
it doesnt stay loud once i wake the computer up and return to windows, but anytime my computer is working from the bios either in sleep mode or starting up my card is atleast twice as loud as it is when windows is running. lets say i dont touch my computer for 15 minutes, as soon as it goes into sleep mode and windows is no longer running it immediately gets loud and stays non stop loud until i wake it up and go back into windows. this is the only videocard ive every had do this. thanks for the help
