Question 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.

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!

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?
