169.07 Ubuntu 7.10 Fan at %100
 
Hello I just upgraded to the official 169.07 drivers and now the fan on the videocard is at %100 wondering if there is a fix for this or a work around?

Thanks

I'm experiencing the same thing with 169.07 on Slackware 12. I have an 8800GTS 640MB. It lowered the GPU temp quite a bit but the noise is just too much.

same here ( 8800gts 320 )
Did a reboot fix it for anyone?

I am having the same problem with an 8800GT under Ubuntu 7.10.

Must be a driver thing... I only had this problem when I updated the drivers and it goes to normal when in POST as well as in windows

We reproduced the issue and NVIDIA bug #379270 was opened. Our team is investigating.

Same here with Debian Lenny (32 bit) and a 7900GTX.

Sounds like a leaf blower!

So far seems to be all videocards regardless of model or Linux OS

You can control the fan speed on the 8800 with the latest CVS code for NVClock. (tested, using "-f -F 50" to knock it down to 50% in Ubuntu 7.10)

That said, please be careful until a real fix comes from nvidia.

Using gentoo x86_64 here with 8800 GT
my fan was nice and quiet until I started compiz, but even after an X restart the fan is going wild.. can nvclock control the new 8800 GTs yet?
