I don’t know if this topic fits here - if not, feel free to move my topic.
I am using a Titan X (Pascal) to speed up various CUDA applications in AI / Machine Learning. Mainly I am utilizing PyCuda and TensorFlow (Linux exclusively).
Recently, I found out that all of my applications have performance drops after running for a while. To me it looks like this is an cooling issue, because on load the GPU reaches 83°C quite fast and stays on this temperature (with the GPU clock being throttled to prevent further heating, I guess).
However, I noticed that the GPU’s fan speed is capped at about 50%. Is this done intentionally?
If not, how can I (preferably permanently) change the fan’s preset (to go for 100% under load)?
Is there any reason why CUDA accelerated applications should not run at maximum speed (with 100% fan speed)?
