Re: GTX 460 Fan Speed
You have to work it farther into the yellow zone maybe at higher resolution for fan speed to increase. Maybe they make it to take the heat and figure people would rather have a quiet computer than a noisy fan.
I was beginning to wonder if my fan was variable sitting at 30% (also EVGA, but a step down from yours). But I noticed its fan running 40-41% at 65-67 degrees C.
One game that can bury one cpu core at 100% and work your video calculating fps well beyond the refresh rate of your display is minecraft (multiplatform java game).
i5 650 3.2 GHz, 8 GB, nvidia GTX 750 Ti, 32" 1080p | i7-4700MQ, 8 GB, Intel HD 4600/nvidia GTX 765M, 15.6" 1080p | etc.
