Default EVGA Precision.

I installed the GTX260 today and ran EVGA Precision utility set to auto to monitor the GPU and adjust the fan but the thing never ramps up
I ran Crysis for 15 min to check it and it said 74c and still no fan speed increase.
I moved it manually to 65% cooled it right down.
does auto not work on this? anyone familiar?

auto is like "default". or atleast that is the way its working.

you need to manually set the speed yourself if you want more airflow out of it.

I've had it go up to 42% before but that was during folding and it was up to 74C :\ I agree with everyone else..it's more like a "default" button not an "auto" button
