HIS 5850 Fan is pretty Loud.

I just completed my build and I'm running Windows 7 x64 on it right now. Here's my system information:

After I downloaded drivers from this website, (should I grab this or MSI Afterburner...? My perceived solution after poking around for a short while.)
http://www.hisdigital.com/us/download1-521.shtml

I'm looking at and that's without me touching anything 55 is a pretty loud default fan setting... I don't want to have to go in and manually monitor temps and move the fan speed slider around.

What is the problem? And how should I solve it?

*I'm thinking drivers just suck OR bios. But I would not know.

P.S.
I have some other questions too. As I said I just built everything but I don't know how to monitor things...

What are widely used things to measure temperatures and status of hardware?
And what range of temperatures should I be watching for each of the components?

    Does it feel loud to you?If not, then don't bother.
  2. Yes it does... I honestly think because its on my desk next to me it's louder than what most people would consider loud.


    But let's rephrase the question to how can I find better drivers (or get the ones I have to correctly or custom manage the fan speed?

    I think reducing the noise is feasible because I know I can run it at 30% and it stays @ 37C. (its not audible at that speed)

    Well if it feels loud, just lower the fan speed, and it seems that you've already achieved that. If you want better fan control, download MSI Afterburner.
  4. riva tuner can manage fan speeds to suit tempratures etc - take a look there :)
  5. Even though both of these are designed for NVIDIA cards it'll still install fine on mine right?

    Just add/remove programs, driversweeper, reboot, install new ones?

    *Edit: MSI Afterburner gave me some sort of "Failed to initialize display driver wrapper!" error after I tried to run after a seemingly successful installation... I looked it up and I'm confused.

    No, MSI Afterburner works with 90% of the cards out there.
  7. Have you installed the drivers correctly?
  8. I probably haven't... Correct way to do it would be,

    Uninstall through control panel's add/remove.
    Then reboot into safe mode & run DriverSweeper. (which I didn't do because F8 didn't work, just found out I can use msconfig to boot into safe mode)
    ... (reboot into normal windows?) install msi afterburner.
  9. I got the same brand and card, MSI burner worked for me Driver version 8.14.10.0798, Catalyst 10.12
  10. Msi afterburner is the %$#@ man :)
    And yeah, 5850 @ 30% fan is loud on my system ... Sapphire Ref 5850

    Other than that, the 30 gb ssd will be filled to fast, you should have waited to get a 60.
    My 60 is almost full and there is almost nothing on it ...
    2 games + Windows + Office + Visual Basic = 50gb :(
