The 100% fan problem is related to GPU usage?
Fan goes to 100% due to the GPU usage/temperature?
No, it's not related to GPU usage. The reason you don't have the problem (as mentioned earlier in the thread) is that mobile GPUs like the 8600M GT do not have a dedicated fan. They are cooled using the general fan in the laptop.

I also have a 8600M GT and do not have a problem. However, my desktop has a 7900GTX and it definitely has this problem. Right on boot up, the fan is at full speed and stays full speed forever unless I use nvclock to slow it down.

nvclock -f -F auto
