GTX 560 Fan Speed Doesnt Go Higher Than %70 , I See 100C degree!

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...
  2. Right now my question is: How to get gtx 560 fan higher then %70
  3. download msi-afterburner here and manually turn up the fan speed.

    I highly advise you to look into a psu replacement...
  4. I already tried afterburner but it doesnt go higher then %70.
  5. Afterburner should allow you to change the fanspeed of the card. Do you have the latest drivers?
  6. well, even for fans spinning at 70%, your card's running too hot. have you tried cleaning it physically with compressed air?
  7. Is the airflow in your case ideal?
