Today I installed a new Asus GT440 into my PC
installed Linux driver: 304.60
Linux distro: Fedora 13.
Option “Coolbits” “4”
to my xorg.conf, so nvidia-settings shows the “Enable GPU Fan Settings” in
the Thermal Settings. The fan speed percentage defaults to 50%.
Increasing it and then clicking “Apply” works: the fan runs faster.
Decreasing it (e.g. to 40%) and clicking “Apply” does nothing: the slider returns to 50%.
I’d love to decrease it, the card runs at 30-34C with the fan at 50%
(which is quite noisy).
I have scoured the web for answers, and nothing works (did not try
the “flash gpu bios” (?) suggestion that I saw in a few places).
Is there any way to troubleshoot this?
I downloaded the nvidia-settings source, I’m perfectly happy to
do any required coding to fix this…
