    Default Fan Speed Control

    Well, yesterday I installed graphics card 8400 GS and I need a fan speed software that controls how fast it is going. I want it mainly fro noise issues.
    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks again. I am running 32 bit vista if that matters.

    Yeah.
    EVGA Precision is the easiest to install and use, although it requires you to register at EVGA to be allowed to download it.
    I can always upload it for you if you want, gimme a second.

    Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

    Thanks a lot, I wasn't expecting the fan to be this loud >.>
    I was question whether I should buy one of those Zalman coolers, but dishing out more money is ugh.

    On an 8400GS?
    Kind of a waste of money, but that's up to you.
    What brand is it? If it's an EVGA or BFG, you can Step-Up/Trade-Up your video card by sending it in and paying the difference for an upgrade (and get a card that generates less noise). Usually, the better cards are quieter than the crap ones. That way, you get some future-proofing and reduced noise. Look for some reviews since they usually include noise testing.

    Well I wasn't going to game much on it. Occasional Counter Strike, maybe UT3. It is an EVGA. How would I go about setting that trade up? I really only needed the gfx card for my mac os x partition.

    Hmm, won't go for all the hassle. I am just going to leave it as it is. Perhaps buy that Zalman cooler I don't know
