So i have a 6 month old gtx 560 , and while playing games like bf3 it was around 85 degrees with %70 fan speed, and i didnt care.

But playing ghost recon ( which uses gfx card %100 all the time) overheats the card and pc shuts down.

I also think that my 600w OCZ Stealthstream is dying and might be cause of the even higher temps then before. But my question is how can i make my gtx 560 fan go higher than %70?

if you think your PSU is dying, your fan speed is the least of your worries. start buying ramen noodles for breakfast/lunch/dinner, save up and buy a new and reliable PSU before your current one blows and takes your system with it. otherwise pretty soon you won't be gaming at all...

Afterburner should allow you to change the fanspeed of the card. Do you have the latest drivers?

well, even for fans spinning at 70%, your card's running too hot. have you tried cleaning it physically with compressed air?

Is the airflow in your case ideal?
