I’ve just upgraded from the on-board Intel HD4000 to an MSI nVidia GTX 650 in a new build of mine and everything went fine apart from the fact the fan, once the nVidia driver loads, appears to stick at 100% and as you can imagine that’s very loud (it’s purely wind noise, it’s not physically hitting anything).
Has anyone encountered this before? The graphics card in nVidia Tools states the core is around 19’c so it’s clearly not hot. It’s like the moment the nVidia driver is loaded, it just maxes the fan and stays there for no reason.
I do not get this issue with the Nouveau driver so it is specific to the nVidia official driver blob.
Driver is the latest, 313.30-5. I’ve also tried the 319 beta.
Enabling coolbits gives me fan control in the nVidia settings program, but I can’t change it - if I try then as soon as I hit Apply, the slider jumps back to 40% and nothing happens.
