Default Fan Speed control App for GTX 680s - 11-24-2012, 11:11 | posts: 1

I've recently upgraded the graphics cards in my PC from a pair of GTX 275s to a pair of GTX 680s.
Unfortunately I also found out that the "NVIDIA System Tools with ESA Support" no longer support my graphics cards, so at the moment I have no fan control.

So without wanting to start a Holy War

What GPU fan control software do people recommend?

I'm basically looking for something that has application profiles that auto change the fan curve based on temperature. Same as Systems Tools used to do.
Example: Eve-Online doesn't cook the GPU as quickly as BF3, so Eve Profile might use 40% at 20C, 60% at 40C and 80% at 70C. And the BF3 Profile might use 50% at 20C, 70% at 40C and 90% at 70C.

Are you serious, you were using that silly NV software ?
I recommend MSI:AfterBurner, install it ASAP !

Any program by Unwinder will work great for setting up a fan profile.
I have changed a EVGA LN2 BIOS for my reference MSI680 cards to 100% fan control setup a aggressive fan profile for the higher voltage the cards use.

I seem to like EVGA Precision X With HWiNFO64 for all the Information I want in game.
