    Fans of GPU at FULL SPEED


    Hi all,

    I did a clean install of windows 10 about 2 months ago.
    Everything was fine till all of a sudden I came home one day and found my GPUs fan at full blast making some real good noise.

    Turned off the computer, checked the card, cleaned it (pressurized air) and put it back in and same problem persists.
    It did not feel hot so this is very weird. It seems to be a Windows 10 issue because the card is working fine except the fans are at full blast always.

    Here is a pic of the GPU info....look at those fan rpms!!
    Also attaching a log file if this helps.

    Please help!!

    Thanks

    Windows has no direct control over the GPU fans but it's possible that the graphics drivers got updated. You can check your Windows Updates history to see if a driver got updated around the time the noise started.

    Did you check to make sure the fan cables and connectors on the card were clean and plugged in all the way? Do you hear the fans ramp up all the way once you turn on the machine or does it take some time?

    Thanks for the reply

    Driver was not updated....I did uninstall it right now and Windows did a auto install of drivers

    Card connectors were clean and plugged in all the way....just double checked

    Fan ramps up all the way as soon as I turn on the machine.

    What is the exact manufacturer and model of the card? Does the manufacturer have a utility that lets you see the temperature and/or control the fan speed (in case GPU-Z isn't accurate)?

    Try to use a latest version of the driver. I am pretty sure the controller is now shot.

    You might be able to use Open Hardware Monitor.
    To manually change the fan speed.
    I'm not sure if it will works with your ATI Radeon HD 5770 GPU, but I know it works with my GPU.
    Here's a screenshot of it on my system.
    With the fan controls open.

    It looks like the Catalyst Control Center should let you control the fan speed. Look around there to see if anything helps.

    Tried this. Found it.
    Move it to 20% (lowest) click apply. Nothing happens/changes.
    Move it to 100% click apply. Nothing happens/changes.
    Move it to 50% click apply. Nothing happens/changes.
