try these you can set the video card fan to run 100% all the time instead of idling lower then seeding up under load you will create a little more fan noise but so what i want my stuff running nice and cool


RivaTuner for Nvidia

Sorry about that here these are good that fan running at 100% is only drawing at most about 1-2 watts no big deal

Mother board manufacturer cause it should be in the bios, graphic card man. Cpu man. Ram manufacturers. All these are used when going for the gold medal of overclock. You can overclock your CPU and 'Video card moderatly fairlly easy pending on your bios choices for your CPU settings and for graphics their are a lot of applications to allow you to do some overclocking. But real overclockers won't ,don't reccommend using applications it's all about getting intimate with your bios settings. And not all boards are designed with all the needed features to reach some of the overclocks you see. The whole Idea behind overclocking came from being able to buy mid range hardware and push it to or over the more expensive harware. It becomes an addiction if you let it. World records using liquid nitrogen ect. You can use EVGA precision to overclock your card and control your fan. It works on most Nvidia cards, At leat I know it works on BFG,XFX. and Evga http://www.evga.com/PRecision/ easy to use.

Anyway, i just noticed, OMG ive only been doing webbrowsing, and in 30 min the temp is 74 C again! What is up with that? So its the same amount, even if i play or dont play. Thats weird right?
Also, where can i edit fan speed @Computersplus?

@coolness: Are you trying to overclock the system in your specs? Cause if you are I wouldn't even bother cause your not going to get enough of a overclock to see much of a difference, Not to mention Laptops run warm to begin with. You need to blast some canned air through the fans (system off) and I used 2 paint sturers glued together cut to length and placed them under the back of my lappy so the fans can breath. Or get a laptop cooling station. If your running 74c just browsing then you need to get better air flow. IMO. Fabe

laptops run hot your not going to get away with overclocking on that even the fan control may or may not work I only suggested those due to the fan speed control
