Windows 7: Nvidia 9500 GT fan control

Nvidia 9500 GT fan control

Can you just turn down the fan using the Nvidia software in GPU cooling? It is not terribly loud but would like to turn it down a bit. I have the latest Nvidia control panel with "device settings" with CPU-MOTHERBOARD-MEMORY-GPU. Is this safe? Just want to make my desktop quiet. Thanks for any thoughts.

you could use a variety of apps to lower the fan speed.....the Nvidia control panel will allow it only if you have unlocked the advanced options..

here are a few i swear by.

Rivatuner

EVGA precision


just remember to keep an eye on the temps, they can shoot up pretty quick.

Okay I have the advanced options and I see it there. I will try it and see what happens. What is the high end temp for a card like this that's still safe? I don't know much about it. Just installed it Saturday.

Thanks for the links - I will look into them.

80c is the max you ever want to see on full load with ANY card, ive had an 8800GT @
96c for over an hour & it kept chugging along, (it sounded like a 4x4 that had been through the bush for a week afterward.... )

but GPUs are designed to run hot..
