Title says it all. I want it at 100% at all times. Right now I can't even feel any air coming out of it. Even if your gonna tell me its not possible, I'd still appreciate any help. I don't want a 4th dead 7900gt...

Try using Riva Tuner or Gainward Expertool to force the fan to 100%

RivaTuner is @ www.guru3d.com/rivatuner/

Already tried rivatuner. If that was 100%, then this fan sucks all kinds of ass.

The fan is weak, i had mine connected right to a 12v line and it barely pushed any air out.

What are the actual card temps?? Just because the fan doesn't push alot of air doesn't mean the cooler isn't working.

Thats right, i have the same cooler on my 7800GTX i can feel cool air comming from it at the back, the air dosent have alot of pressure, my card sits idle at 41c thats with my card overclocked.... it sits idle at 38c at default clock speeds!

Yeah, I've come to the conclusion that the fan just plain sucks. Thanks anyway guys. And I know its thermal controlled, but what freakin temp does it have to reach for the fan to kick in? Its not good for the card to idle warm all the time, damn silent pc trend....
