Default 9600 GT noisy fan (173.14.12 Ubuntu 8.04)

Hi,

I've got a 9600 GT and everything is working very well with the latest (stable) driver (173.14.12) under Ubuntu 8.04.

But, the fan makes really too much noise ... I believe it is at 100% but I do not have Windows to compare...

Could this be fixed ? Also, could nvidia release something to control the fan in nvidia settings ?

By the way, nvidia-Settings give me a temperature of 36° and nvclocks 19° ... which one is correct ?

Thanks

I'd really like to know if it's possible too. The fan is so noisy I think I'll no longer use this card since I don't play that much with my computer. I've managed to change settings so the card is supposed to use dynamic settings (I can check this into nvidia-settings), but it doesn't affect the fan.

It is possible to support this in nvclock but I haven't had time for it and I fear that I won't have time to add support for it anytime soon.

Okay, that's not cool but it's already great that you have done nvclock

But do you know which temperature is correct (nvclock or nvidia-settings ) ?

The value I read directly comes from the GPU but it needs a chip-specific offset correction (it is different for each single GPU). I'm not sure how the mechanism works.
