Hello, I have an XFX 9600GT, its a pretty old card but it gets the job done. My main problem with it is that the cooling fan on it runs at 100% during system bootup and only slows down to normal speed once windows is fully loaded.
I have a lot of software on my pc so it takes a while to boot and the loud noise it very annoying. I also like to test new operating systems and different versions of linux. Every time I am installing an os the fan is at 100% for like 20mins until the os is fully installed and drivers are working.
Is there anything I can do to adjust the speed of the fan? I tried adjusting it from windows but obviously those settings are only applied once the system loads. Can I edit the bios of the card to reduce the speed of the fan?
I was thinking about an aftermarket cooler but the main problem is that my card is a 9600GT its so old that at this point I wouldn't want to spend any money one it. I am thinking of replacing it with a gaming card but they are pretty expensive so it will take some time before I get one.
