Windows 7: GTX465/470 Fan at 82RPM

Unfortuantely if it has overheated a number of times it may be damaged now. Even moderate heating may now be causing a chip to lift from the PCB. Todays leadless solder is EXTREMELY intolerant to stress caused by heating and cooling cycles. Cracked solder pads are very common. It seems to be the #1 cause of video card failure over the last few years.

If the card is still under warrenty I'd have it replaced ASAP.

Well at stock the fan stays at 40% until it reaches around 70c then it will start to up the fan. The stock fan profile favours audibility over keeping your card cool.

There was a specific nvidia driver that has this or a similar problem with turning the fan off. But that's was fixed 3 months ago or so.

Just in case, make sure your using the latest drivers. But the fan problem may just be another reason to RMA the card ASAP

Dear Sir

We add a BIOS image for our GTX465 in this mail. You can try to run BIOS flash to your VGA card.

@ There is no newer BIOS image released to our GTX465, so you can try this one we send you for comparison.

If it can not solve the issue you are facing after you tried the BIOS image we send you, we recommend you have to request RMA service for your VGA card.

@ The utility “nvflash” needs to be run under the pure DOS mode for giving your GTX465 card a BIOS flash.



Done..
Well, lets just say, i'm uncertain...... HWmonitor is showing 82RPM as the minimum speed so far... i have MSI Afterburner on Manual Fan Control where i have set it to go from 70% fan speed if over 40*C, to go to 100% as soon as it hits 70*C... will go play some games to test it, will report back...


Well.....
