So lately iv been gaming alot and i dont want to let me gpu get too hot so i drag the fan speed up to like about 80 and then when im done ill put it back down to like 50. Will doing that a few times a day break the fans on it? My gpu is a asus geforce gtx 560ti DC II Top factory oced to 900mhertz and i oced it to 950mhertz

The graphics card should do that by itself.

Download this then make your own better more aggressive fan profile.

Iv tried that but somehow when i put it on automatic it still stays at like 20% when at 56 C. I have used Asus Gpu tweak and msi afterburner

Follow the instructions.


You have done as they recommend?


56 degrees is nothing. You should be worried if you were hitting 80 degrees at 20% fan.
