Gigabyte GΤΧ 980Ti Windforce - Fan Issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've had this GPU for about a year now, it was doing fine in the beginning but I didn't dig too much into it, the fan stop feature wouldn't work so I gave up on it and had my fans on 20%, now that I have the AC on the card stays way cooler so I want my fans to turn off and they JUST DON'T. I've used the XTreme Engine still nothing, Afterburner still the same, it just doesn't turn off. Do I need to DDU or have we got any other solutions?

just a thought but the card might not have a stock bios on it

Mind sharing how I could check? I kinda don't remember how, also quoting something I said above, the card used to work find for some days after I got it, it's used to maybe, this card has 2 BIOS options I have the LN2 but it makes no difference it kinda just locks the colors of the GPU so they can't be changed. Yes I have tried turning them off without the LN2 Bios

I don't think you can go below 20% fanspeed on pre-Pascal cards without modding the bios with Maxwell Bios Editor, as it was a safety feature to prevent the card from overheating (supposedly). With Maxwell Bios Editor you can adjust the minimum and maximum fan speeds in percentage you want the card to run at and in theory you should be able to set it to allow you to run a 0% at a given temp like you want, but this also requires you to modify your bios and flash it to the card, with the assumed risks, that said "I am not responisible if anything happens to the card in any way shape or form, I am simply showing you the tools to which your goal can be accomplished" its relatively safe to do so but loss of power or modification of anything other than that can risk bricking the card.

Pretty sure the card was made for it since it has the fanstop thing on it's cooler

As said above then you might want to look into making sure the card has the bios that came with the card when it was manufactured.

 

A way you can check is GPU-z, see if the bios version link you click matches the card you have in their database, it's almost always correct.

I'm going to assume you bought it used 

Try flashing it with an original bios for the card and then check.

Its definitely been modded, Board power limit Target: 887.0 W Limit: 900.0 W gives it away in that dump.

Hold on, give me a minute or two and I'll report back, that's cause maybe I have the LN2 BIOS on which is I think meant for nitrogen cooling lol

You could download that BIOS file, assuming that's the exact card you have, make sure device id and sub system id matchup (which from what I see they do but double and triple check behind me) and you can use a program called nvflash to flash that one, but make sure the card is not overclocked in any way before you flash.

It shouldn't be a problem, but just in case make a backup of your current bios using GPU-z and save it to a safe place in case it doesn't work, that way you can easily revert back to what you had.

Let me know how it goes, it should be pretty straightforward, the only way to brick the card would be to cancel it in the middle of the flash or if you lost power. Other than that if the bios doesn't work it just won't correctly load the driver and in that case just revert back to the old bios and that usually fixes it. I've flashed my 1080 ti to an incompatible bios and that's basically what happened and it was fixed when flashing back. Also sometimes it may not be right away that you'll notice something is wrong so i'd hold on to that bios for as long as you feel the need to as a "just in case" it never hurts.

 

Oh and after the flash you'll need to reboot your computer. If the fan issue still isn't resolved try DDU'ing the driver and do a clean install, if that doesn't work try an older driver to see if it's still affected, also check to see if MSI afterburner is up to date. Sometimes it can be the simplest of things. Also only use one GPU overclock tool, sometimes having 2 they can conflict with each other causing issues like that, but i'm pretty sure it was a vbios issue.

Let me know how it goes, it should be pretty straightforward, the only way to brick the card would be to cancel it in the middle of the flash or if you lost power. Other than that if the bios doesn't work it just won't correctly load the driver and in that case just revert back to the old bios and that usually fixes it. I've flashed my 1080 ti to an incompatible bios and that's basically what happened and it was fixed when flashing back. Also sometimes it may not be right away that you'll notice something is wrong so i'd hold on to that bios for as long as you feel the need to as a "just in case" it never hurts.

hmmm looks like its write protected, after launching nvflash use this command: NVFlash64 --protectoff press enter and then attempt to reflash.

 

Edit: If that command doesn't work use: nvflash --protectoff


Quote me or @TwilightRavens if you want me to see your reply.

 

"Former team Radeon fanboy, current Nvidia shill (unpaid) because they just work. Yet my favorite GPU of all time that I've ever owned was my R9 290X, even though it took 5 years of driver updates to make it perform correctly, by which time it was a completely useless card. Ran it at 1230MHz/1750MHz on the core and memory respectively for 4 of those years and it still works to this day... drivers pending."


"People freak out over CPU degradation too much these days, I ran my i7-3770K at 5.6GHz 1.67v for 3 years under water cooling and the only thing that happened was that I found out ASUS is overpriced garbage, that alone should prove silicon is more durable than you think it is."

My guy you're a life saver, my fans are OFF! Finally! I can save some dust from clogging my cooler, thank you so much for spending your time helping a stranger! I flashed the BIOS everything went well and I hope everything will still go well, if I have any issues I'll send over a DM to ask for help, thank you so much!
