What program do i use to change fan speeds

I was looking for some programs to speed up the fan on my card. It is set at 60% all the time.

I heard about a program called rivatune?

Is there also a program that works for speeding up cpu fan's?

What programs do you guys use.

Also could someone tell me more about rivatune? Can it do anything else other that fan speeds?

Thanks

p.s. if you need my system specs they should be there in the specs tab

Speedfan...but there's a learning curve to using the software. Just click on the highlighted speedfan 4.49 undre download.

Download SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

Doesn't Nvidia have a built-in software to do that for your GPU?

MSI Afterburner

And just make sure your cpu fan is set to full blast in the bios

Open Hardware Monitor is a very easy to use program and it includes GPU Fan Control Open Hardware Monitor - Core temp, fan speed and voltages in a free software gadget
You can also try Nvidia Inspector, no need to install, just launch as is. http://www.techspot.com/downloads/50...inspector.htmlNvidia inspector does have overclocking feature if you wish to use it, but please use at your own risk.

You can also control your cpu fan through your BIOS.

Just FYI on the subject matter:

The Radeon Series of cards have this setting in Catalyst (the software suite for the AMD cards):
From within the AMD Vision Engine Control Center, go to Performance / AMD Overdrive / then sub menu Graphics OverDrive, there is the fan tweaking amongst the overclocking for the GPU, it's RAM, and Power control.

Best to leave the fans in AUTO unless you have a real need for more speed, 100% all the time is definitely not going to be good for the longevity of the fan on the video card, and shouldn't be needed!?!
I'd get more case fans, if heat in there, is really a problem.

I think setting a fan curve is the better option. I also feel other than the noise factor, 100% fan speed would cause no problems.

I have researched this yet don't have the saved links so this is still up for discussion.

So I spent the last approx 30 minute searching and everything is subjective. While running a fan a 100% would seem to reduce life expectancy, chances are it would last the lifetime of the card anyway. I still stand by the fan curve option, it only makes sense to keep temps cooler. It is all about user preference and their tolerance to noise.
