Exclamation fan noise with nVidia® GeForce® 7900GS

fan noise with nVidia® GeForce® 7900GS
Dear User,

I have a new workstation with a nVidia® GeForce® 7900GS graphic card
running latest OpenSuse linux. the problem is the noise of the card
fan running non nvidia driver. the fan is running always on full speed.


1. I want to use the card on a XEN activated linux workstation.
2. the default NVIDIA driver does not support XEN
3. the default X.Org NVIDIA driver support XEN but does not support
fan control

for now I have 2 possibilities:

1. use the card but not use XEN
2. get a silent card from somebody and replace the 7900GS

I kindly ask the nvidia support for one of 3 possible solutions:

1. provide a XEN aware linux driver to the card mentioned above
2. replace my current card with a silent card
3. help the X.Org team to add fan control to the default linux driver

can somebody help me ?

You can adjust the fanspeed of your card using Nvclock. I recommend to use the CVS version as it is the latest available.
