I ran the test again, but this time I began to manually increase the fan speed once it hit 105c. Here's what I recorded:
75% - 105c
80% - 105c
85% - 105c
90% - 102c
95% - 99c
100% - 99c
Once it gets hot, it stays hot
Surely at 100% fan it would not get that high...Could you maybe set it at 100% fan at idle and then stress the GPU to see the max temp recorded ?
Its just recently i set up a profile on rivatuner for my GTX285 fan speed. I have 80% fan kicking in way earlier than default driver version and have noticed a 15c drop in load temp since i did it.
