GPU fan louder on new MB
Hi. I recently changed my ASRock M3N78D-FX with the 990FX Extreme3 motherboard. But when I turned the PC on, the GPU fan after starting quietly at 40% at most, steadily got up to 60% for no reason - even if I stay at the BIOS it would go up in two minutes no matter what. I thought the heat-sink may be clogged but after I cleaned the little dust that has accumulated, the result was the same. I even changed the thermal grease but there was no difference. This was not observed on the M3N78D-FX mobo (with no load the GPU fan stayed at ~43% at most) and right now I am in doubt whether I should return the new mobo in the legal 7-day period in my country and buy something else.
