But nvidia really need to address this problem with proper and automatic adjustment in their own drivers.
Even with the side panel removed it reaches those temps at 29% fan speed...
Auto fan control is completely broken in windows too. I really don't think you should have to use 3rd party apps to fix a 1st party problem, if you know what I mean. I've since put my old card back in and am contemplating getting a refund for this one....there seems to be a disproportionately high amount of issues with this card after reading around a bit...
