Hi ! :)

Maybe with smcFanControl ?

and if it doesn't work, then you have to edit the bios of your gpu (on WIndows), change the settings of fan's settings and re-flash your gpu.

I know, it's a little hard thing, but it works fine ! ;)

@Fantomas1

here i have uploaded image with info: http://s18.postimage..._1_51_07_PM.png

My GPU temperature is 46 C* average, what would bios flashing change? Will i get variable FAN speeds or people flash GPU's so
they can set higher fixed fan speeds?

In my case temperature is ok, but fan speed is fixed and fixed fan speed means gpu coolers shorter life.

Please explain me what would I achieve by flashing GPU...

The idea is to edit the BIOS and manually adjust the fan speeds before flashing it.

No fans are showing in smcFanControl because you don't have the right fakesmc plugins installed.
I don't know if there is a plugin for your video card.

firstly, on your screen i can see that you haven't QE_CI activated (the menu bar isn't transparent), so that can be the cause your fan speed is a little bit high.

secondly, on Windows, you can use Riva Tuner to regulate your fan speed. Then you can apply that speed on your cg bios ( one speed for 2D, another one for 3D ) with flashing it.

I have disabled transparency i like grey. QE_CI is activated, and fully working.

What i have saw with HW monitor is that GPU rpm is 1400 when temperature is 45 C*
after playing Starcraft II on Extreme details GPU temperature was 55 C* and rpm was 1800

Does that mean that GPU RPM scaling is working and is those numbers up there normal?

Thank you everyone for helping me, can i have answer to this question too :) ?

here are pictures of temperatures with HWMonitor

1. Does this means my GPU RPM works, are those 57 C* normal for gaming?

2. Whats difference between HWMonitor and smcFanControl do they do same thing?
