I just installed a EVGA GeForce 8800 GT . So far the performance has been good , allthough Crysis crashed twice in the part where you fly a plane .

I heard that the fan speed is fixed at 30 % and that you need to increase the speed manuely or the card could overheat . I figured the fan would automatically increase in speed when the card was working hard / or got hot ? Do I need to run a app like Ntune or Rivatuner and manuely adjust the fan speed , or is the performance ok as it is , and the card adjusts the fan speed automaticaly ? I dont want to overclock my card [ what I though Ntune and Riva where for ] I just dont want my card to overheat due to the fan speed being to slow .

EVGA has released a BIOS update to address this problem. Please see here for instructions.

Alternatively, you could use a program such as RivaTuner to manually set the fan speed.

Using RivaTuner and pumping it up to 70% should be fine.

or even 50%-60% should be fine if you didn't overclock it.

or if you wanna get more complicated, you could set up automatic fan settings so that its quiet when its cool and loud when its hot.

flying plane part, my response: OMG 25FPS... ZOMG SAD FACE....
