View Full Version : Nvidia card problem
02-11-2005, 09:53 AM
I recently assembled a new PC for graphics. But the "Nvidia card" is making alot of noise. Noise from the fan on it. Does all "Nvidia" make similar noise.
1. We have a forum called Technical and Hardware. Problems like this should be posted there.
2. You need to be specific. Just saying you have a nvidia card isn't terrifically helpful.
I have a nvidia 6600gt and it is quite quiet, as have all of the previous three I've owned.
Does the noise you are hearing sound like grinding, in which case the fan might be having problems, or is it just a loud whirring?
First, all fans make a bit noise!
When you've a very powerfull videocard, you need also a powerfull fan.
These fan's will most times make noise (my experience ;).
I don't know what kind of noise you heared... but of course it's possible that the videocard is crashed while transporting. If you think, the fan slipped(don't know the right word) go to the shop you bought the videocard.
When it's a normal noise.
There are four options ;)
first you can ignore the noise
second you can buy an other fan and change he fans
third you can buy a watercould system
fourth you can make your system noiseless by isolating your system
Sorry for speaking bad english

As it was mentioned previously... Be more precise! What vendor and model are You talking about ?
You can by a very cheap device to control the speed of Your fan on GPU.

Another approach is to change the cooler - try something like the "VGA Silencer", I use this and it is really silent and also more powerful then most original fans.
Only problem is that you may loose the warranty for this card.
But it is commonly known that some Nvidia Cards are really "loud"

The new nvidia cards have loud fans, personally I replaced mine with an arctic cooler fan. This drops off 20 degrees and makes it very quiet.
