GPU fan speeds keep turning to auto

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The fans on my GPUs keep turning from manual to auto, making my GPUs too hot. Why is this happening? I am using MSI afterburner.

Even after doing a fresh install, it keeps doing this. I want them at around 50-70% speed but it keeps converting to 25% (auto)

Both GPUs do this occasionally.

Gigabyte Aorus 1080ti

MSI Gaming X 1060 6 Gb


Asus Z170

16 Gb DDR4

850 Evo 250 Gb

This has apparently fixed it! In fact, it works better than just setting a static fan speed.
