Can't turn down my 8600GTS fan, RivaTuner isn't applying??


I'm Stumped all around,

I got the 8600GTS for my HTPC build, but the fan on the MSI NX8600GTS is just insanely loud. So I installed RivaTuner and tried to turn down the fan speed, but at 25% it didn't change anything, the fan was still spinning just as fast.


Since this is a htpc, i'd really like it to be silent, is there anything you can recomend for me to be able to turn down the gpu fan?


Thanks guys

whats the fan pluged into? the card or the mobo or ???

what brand is it? might not support fan control?

if you can get an aftermarket cooler with the right connection you could run it through a POT/fan controller http://www.zalman.co.kr/ENG/product/...ad.asp?idx=206

or... http://www.zalman.co.kr/ENG/product/...Second_Pic.asp one of thoes should fit your application and are reasonably priced

Have you updated the driver? I have the same issue with my 9800gtx and it's a driver issue, at least for me.

rpoc, sorry if this insults you, but I know I've forgotten the simplest things many times and kicked myself for it. Did you click apply after moving the fan slider down?

Uninstall and re-install rivatuner, it happens sometimes especially if you change drivers or swap cards

You could always disconnect the fan, take off the cover and place your own fan on it

Try eVGA precision also, works for all nVidia cards.
