    I know this is a bit old talk, but is there a way to limit fan speed at boot ( it goes 100% at start, then it goes to normal 30%) It is annoying becose it happens also when i wake up from sleep mode.. at 100% fan i allway wake up my gf, and this is bad thing at night :3eyes:

    I tried downloading NibiTor 5.8 but cant load bios ?? need older nvidia drivers ?

    Some 8800GT's didn't come with this functionality. I forget which types though... Just use Riva Tuner (evga precesion may work too?), set the fan speed, listen to see if it adjusts or not. You should be able to hear the difference. Thats how I found out I couldn't change the fan speed on mine.

    NiBitor can't read the BIOS from modern cards like 8800 GT. To read the BIOS you need the NVFLASH utility under real DOS mode. (Usage: nvflash --save bios.rom) and then use that file with NiBiTor. But, even if you do that, I'm not sure if you can change the power-on fan speed

    Buy a cheap aftermarket cooler and your problem is solved...
