Windows 7: Graphics/Video Board Small Fan: Working ?

Graphics/Video Board Small Fan: Working ?


Is there a free program that would verify that the small fan on a Radeon
graphics/video board is actually working ?

I looked at Speccy, wow, but it only gives temp's., apparently.
Or, is it there, somewhere ?

This is great info., but anything that might tell rpm, or if actually turning ?

Could you not simply just have a look inside the case? use a mirror if you can't see the bottom of the card?
Programs that can do this are HWMonitor, SpeedFan and Open Hardware Monitor, they should all display RPM if you have the card's drivers installed (however it might not work for some)

Hope that helps

The free GPU-Z gives a ton of gfx card info. Here's a snip of my system -

but, as has been said, have a look in the case. Also, it's a good time to check for dust in the various fans.
