Default Take Control of Your 4800 Video Card's Fan

Take Control of Your 4800 Video Card's Fan

We have a how-to article posted today that will help you get those high temps on your Radeon HD 4800 series card under control. The tutorial includes a video and cut & paste instructions to make taking control of your fan speed as easy as pie.

Taking this tweaking a step further, is an excellent thread by ribbell that addresses how to use RivaTuner and the above technique to automatically control your fan speedís ramp based on the temperature of your GPU(s). The drawback is that it is somewhat hit and miss currently, but we are told that the upcoming RivaTuner v2.11 is supposed to smooth out the process. We look forward to that and will maybe publish a follow-up video if you guys want.
