GPU fans go mental at startup!

Go to solution Solved by JkB_SlH,

The high fan spin at startup is normal as there is no drivers running yet.

But once you reach the login screen it should settle up in few moments.

If not, just reinstall driver.

P.s, recheck AB settings

Hey guys. So, my new GTX 970's Fans go mental when I boot up my computer sometimes . As it's booting up, everything seems to be fine. But sometimes, after I type my password and my startup programs start popping up, the fans on my GPU start spinning very fast and it gets very noisy for a couple of seconds and then it goes back to idle speeds (30%). What's weird is that it doesn't happen all the time, it's more like 50/50 to be honest. It started happening, I think, since I set a custom fan profile for my card using MSI Afterburner. Is this normal? Should I be worried? I should point out that the GPU runs extremely cool under load and doesn't seem to be malfunctioning at all.

 

Cheers.

That's quite normal, and your lucky you don't have the G1 Gaming versions, they would have you even more worried with the amount of noise they throw out at start up. I have noticed however that unlike my GTX 970 G1, my GTX 650Ti OC 2GB has its fans run at a constant 30% no matter what-even during startup, so maybe its just a quirk with the 900 series.

normal. When I turn off my PC CPU fan goes to a 100%. It is supposed to prevent damage. imagine the program not running and your fan speed being stuck at 30% while your GPU slowly starts melting in its own shell.

It solely is protection that has some weird moments it "bugs" in. It is not a bad "bug" however if you can even call it one.

What does AB mean? Sorry, I'm relatively new to this.

I'm pretty sure that's normal.

Might be the way the 900s work since my 770 doesn't do anything alike. Instead my CPU fan does :D

Also just one thing. Fans ramping up never is a bad thing( or at least not uber terrible).

Fans NOT ramping up however is a terrible thing.

My 970 starts up at about 70% speed, then shuts down, then depending on whether I had the fan on manual before shutdown or not it will either stay silent or jump up to 4500RPM because it can't see the fans spinning, then back it down to 35% PWM

So you had the fan ramping up upon startup after creating a profile?

I didnt create a profile, it simply acted that way as long as there was no proper drivers running.

Including while installing windows for example.

My Gigabyte windforce 780 does it to.

 

Sounds like a small jet taking off at 100% fan speed.

That still hasn't changed either with newer cards.
