Im very bemuzed then, if thats the case why would they contruct something you have no control over...? Its like buying a fishing wire for it cast itself when it pleases. I dont think this is right from a buyers point of view. Im gonna contact the people who made the card itself and to see if theres an answer they can give. As a cheap person i am i dont believe in buying extra's to the stuff i have, ( lack of money ) so buying after market cooler is not a option. But also doubt they will take the card back due to this cant be a fault with anything software wise... May i thank you all for your informative replys. I will post a update if i get a e-mail from the company.!
This is the letter i send to them:
Hello there, ive been having issues with my GF9800 GT, it would appear while gaming the fan dispite been set to 100% falls to a static 40% and then desides what it feels best. The most ive seen is 60%. The issue appears while gaming:
Crysis,Burnout Paradise, Sim city, Fallout 3, all these with in a matter of 1-30 mins of game play the fan resets to a auto mode ( this is the only thing i can think of )
However strange as it stands the following games are not effected and keep the fan to 100% even after hours and hours of gaming:
Battlefield 2142 ( might i add ive edited the game to allow for extra bots as the normel version allowed for a 7v7 ( this is not my idea of a "battlefield" and now have 57v57), bigger explosions, more ammo ect.
TFC 2 - any amount of game time its fine.
WoW - 12-20 hours and i can tell you theres no diffence in fan speeds.
I have updated my drivers and also have sent with this e-mail a picture of what im seeing, The tool is evga precision and clearly on the picture ive got it set to 100%, notice the graft fall even tho its stuck on 100% with no options to apply. the reason for this e-mail is because my last under powered over heated 8800 GT died after a year and the fan was to 25%.... If this is a case of the bios doing this, how would i stand in returning the item? Because as ive stated my last one went the same way thru over heating. Now i have 600 wats of power on the pc so i know power is not the issue. Please could you answer my questions and i thank you for reading this e-mail
Im gonna be on holiday for the next 3-4 days so i will reply i get for others to see. I know some are not bothered but to some this is matter one doesnt want in his pcin
