RX 560 4GB Low Profile - Default Fan Speed?
« on: 15-April-19, 11:19:02 »

Hi
I'm trying to use the RX 560 4GT LP OC with MacOS (and Windows).
It works wonderfully except for one thing..

The fan is never below 30% (about 2800 rpm) on MacOS, even at idle.
In Windows it also starts at about that (it seems like based upon noise) upon boot until a custom fan curve kicks in after boot.

Is 30% (2800rpm) really the default lowest setting for this card?
Is it possible I have a bad one?
Is there some way to modify the BIOS on the card and permanently tweak this fan situation?

On Windows I can use a custom curve, but I can't on MacOS - and honestly I don't even really want to have to use a custom curve for such a small simple lower end card, I'd rather it just work normally out of the box.

When I tweak the curve in Windows to get 0% fan under 40° C, the temp stays in the mid 30's and the fan TOTALLY off in Windows doing normal desktop stuff at 4K resolutions.  It would seem to suggest that the fan does not need to be spinning whatsoever at idle, so I can't figure out why 30% would have been a default that was set.

I really appreciate any and all thoughts on this before I have to send it back - I just can't keep a card that's idling at 2800rpm for no reason.
It's noisy and just not right to me.

Thank youftp://

Add the card's S/N and a copy of the current vbios saved to file.

Would love to - how does one save the VBIOS off it?

Found the link that was pinned -will go do so now

According to GPU-Z, I'm currently on BIOS:  015.050.002.001.000000

I zipped together my serial and rom file and uploaded them with Firefox Send here below.
The forum attachment thing said "no" to rom file

Thank you!

The card uses the very latest vbios there is for this card (TV809MH.MJ0). Therefor there is no way for lower factory fan speeds. Anything else can just been done with software like Afterburner.

Is this actually how the card is intended to be?
I guess I'm wondering if I got a bad one maybe?

It completely, absolutely, doesn't need 30% fans at idle all the time (not even close to needing it).

Right now I've been in Windows 10 for an hour and the card has been "fans totally off" and the temp hasn't gone above 32 degrees C.

I just don't see why they would have intentionally designed this GPU to never have the fans go lower/off totally given how cool it performs.

Yes, it is intended. It is the same with all MSI low profile graphics cards of this class

What a huge disappointment and mistake on the part of MSI
This card needs absolutely no fan speed for normal usage.

Sounds like I'll be returning it this week.

Thanks for your help anyhow - I appreciate it.
