Graphics Cards Fans Don't Start Unless I Manually Set Them

There should be a checkbox somewhere to apply your settings when the utility starts up.

I have a 1070 Strix and usually when I start my computer I go into Asus's graphics card utility and set my preferred fan curve. However occasionally I forget to do that, and when I play a game, the card decides to sit at 93C and thermal throttle rather than turn on it's own fans. I was tipped off that I had forgotten to open up the tuning utility today when I smelled smoldering electronics. I was wondering why the card doesn't turn on its own fans, because I imagine there are people who don't use the tuning utility, and I'm pretty sure their fans turn on. If you have any suggestions of how to fix this besides manually turning on the fans each time I turn on my computer, please let me know.

The card is designed to keep the fans from spinning until the GPU hits 60 degrees C.

Yes, but they are saying that the card is reaching 93 degrees and the fans still don't start. 

Don't forget to "Quote" when replying so we can see it.

I know but 93C is greater 60C.

Does the ASUS utility start when the PC starts?

No only if I open it.

Do the fans run when the system is booting up, like during POST?

Did you use the card before installing and using the ASUS utility?

Well, technically to download ASUS utility I used the card, but not for any actual gaming.

Yes, but I'm just talking about gaming or high loads. 

 

Using the ASUS utility, reset the card fans back to auto and put the card under a high load.

try uninstalling the Asus utility, my guess is that it's taking control of the fans even if you aren't starting it.

Auto works, but I still have to open up Asus utility and press the auto setting.

Remove the utility like suggested above and see if that does the trick. If it still doesn't work, reboot and try again.

The fans work with GPU tweak uninstalled, but I'd like to keep it so that I can control the LEDs and set custom settings.
