GTX 590 Quad SLI - 80C degree 48% Fan Speed?
show user profile  Nanne
I'm trying out my new computer with two NVIDIA GTX 590 in Quad SLI. I ran some demos from NVIDIA today to test the performance. When I ran the Heaven DX11 Benchmark 2.5 (Link) The GPUs got up to about 80 degree Celcius but the fan speed never exceeded 48% is this normal?

How hot is too hot on cards like these?

How can I controll the fan speed myself?

Cheers!

I've just played Mafia II on highest settings with PhysX enabled and the GPUs reached 63C and about 45% fan speed, is this good or bad? :P

Yepp, the latest ones.

I'm guessing that it is fairly good that the heat is not to high concidering the fan speed is only about 45% if I could get it to kick in to about 80-100% it would cool down those GPUs pretty nicely? :)

the 590 will melt at around 105C but nvidia specifies 97C as maximum recommended so you should be ok, if you are uncomfortable with that you need to change more then just your fan speed since pushing it to 100 will get you 5C at most.
