MSI 980 Gaming - 2nd fan maxing out at stress
« on: 10-November-14, 16:26:29 »

Hallo everybody that could help me!

I've got a question cos it's bugging me some time now. At startup without the msi fan control the 2nd fan is moving to the +90% regions and with the msi fan control at 50% (and maybe 0% after 10 minutes or never). After a bios mod that's fixed although the only thing that's remaining is the high rpm at stress. When the temp goes above 60C the 1st fan kicks in to stabilize it, at +65C the 2nd fan kicks in and goes to 100% eventhough the core temps is already under 64C it's remains 100%. At around 60C the 2nd fan slowly slows down about 5% a minute and still making noise after shutting down the gpu-intensive task several minutes ago.

Why is it (2nd fan) going all the way up to 100% even if less then 50% would be more then suffice to keep it at 65C? Why no algorithm just like the first fan who's slowly increasing and decreasing?

I'm an audiofreak and my former asus dc2 780 was way more quite in let's say bf4 then my current Msi 980 Gaming.

Thnx in forward!

I remember 980's fan seems will not spin until the card hit 65'C,
and when the temp. drop to 60'C, the fan will stop again.  :think:

Try use your finger to spin the 1st fan when 2nd fan turn at full speed,
to see if the 2nd fan will get back to normal condition.
someone try it on GTX970 and it works.

Thnx for your reply!

The 1st fan is already moving air when the 2nd fan kicks in hard; not slowly increasing but full tillt at 100% while the 1st is already at 40ish % in rpm.

Closing the game will make the 1st drop the rpm within seconds though the 2nd fan keeps going in the high +80% regions.

I think one of the fans is started from gpu temperature, and the other is started from system or VRM.
check the if the rpm is correspond to temperature or not.

VRM's temp aren't selectable in Afterburner so they're not showing anywhere; is there some kind of bypass for 980/970 cards?

2nd fan is still overreacting when temps tend to get higher, could be the vrm but there's no way to check ;/
