Hi,

I am trying to get hold of a software to control my fans from OSX (LION 10.7.2) on my Hackintosh.
First thing I tried was to try and install paralells to get a windows inside my mac which is inside the PC...hehe.. but it did not even want to start the installation but giving med a boot screen!
So, I wonder - does anyone know of a software to control the fans on the nVidia fermi cards?
When I run my GTX580 it reaches levels of up to 60C in idle mode. That is too much!

How do I know the temperature then? Well, I have dual boot and boot in to windows 7 and run EVGA precision to see the temperatures and to control the fans on the GTX580... but as soon as I leave windows it will raise again since the fans stops to run that fast.

Is there someone out there that can solve this?

nVidia?

Best

PS. Now I am logged into my w7 and am running the fans on 3990 rpm and get 47C - that is more OK...

CPU and GPU Control is done by the OS.
read the newer Fermi Card Thread and you know more.

Searched for "Fermi" and only this thread is displayed. So what "Fermi Card Thread" are you referring to?
