View Full Version : [ubuntu] Loud video card fan, desktop

April 17th, 2011, 10:57 PM
Almost two years ago I built a desktop with THIS (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-130-339&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=3#scrollFullInfo) video card. It isn't obnoxiously loud, but I thought I'd look into it.

- The fan seems to always be the same volume.
- I never play games.
- I have two large displays connected to it.

What's the best thing to do? Take it out and clean it with air and oil?

Is there anything I can look for in the BIOS to quiet it, or monitor more closely?
