EVGA GTX 460 Fan Question
Hey, I have the NVIDIA drivers perfectly installed, and all that good stuff but I have 1 question... about Fan speed.
Should I just let it sit at 30% fan speed? Or find a way to speed it up? I've tried nvclock and my computer locked up(on 10.04, can't get 12.04 installed, but that is a whole different story).
In Windows 7(blah), I have it to go up 1% fan speed per 1c(EVGA Precision). Usually on a Load in Windows I get up to near 50c(and 50% fan).
BTW: I use EDuke32 + HRP & Polymer in Ubuntu, and it gets near the same temp.
Thinking about doing some benchmarking in Ubuntu, and just a little concerned about my GPU temperature.
a bit of an old post i know, but i just actually messed with this this morning:
see this post at ubuntuforums:
essentially, in the Device section of xorg.conf add:
(or Option "Coolbits" "5"...either will work just fine"
Option "Coolbits" "4"
and reboot. You will now be able to set/control fan speed using the nvidia-settings utility.
