    pc gpu fans not staying on temp set on MSI afterburner


    Ive been using afterburner for a long time now and today i opened it up and set my gpu fans to 60 (my gpu usually stays on like 70-79 celcius at this speed. And it worked fine. it set my speed to the speed i desired but when i opened up a game the temp kept dipping down to slow then back up to the temp i set and this was causing my temp to go over 80 celcius. Maybe because the game is on my SSD and afterburner is on my HDD but i dont really know the issue.

  2. MSI Afterburner won't let me control GPU fan speeds in Windows 10

    So i just did the new upgrade to Windows 10, and my MSI Afterburner does not work properly. I can't adjust my fan speeds at all. The icon on the right side of the fan controller doesn't let me click on it to do anything with it. Prior to Windows 10, it
    worked perfectly on Windows 8.1

    Latest MSI Afterburner Betas & Updates


    Latest MSI Afterburner Beta is available:

    MSI Afterburner v4.6.0 beta 9 (build 13338)

    • Voltage/frequency curve editor is now updated on new GPU selection or closed if you select a GPU with no Voltage/Frequency curve control support, so you don’t need to reopen the editor when tuning the curve for multiple GPUs
    • Improved hardware control shared memory interface:
    • Now hardware control shared memory is immediately updated on selecting new GPU from GPU quick selection panel in GUI. It is no longer necessary to apply the settings in order to make new GPU selection visible to external applications connected to hardware control shared memory. So you may switch between multiple GPUs and test them from external overclocking scanner without closing and reopening it for each new GPU
    • New hardware control shared memory interface command allows MSI Afterburner to refresh Voltage/Frequency curve editor to refresh the curve in real time per external application request
    • Updated OC scanner is now refreshing Voltage/Frequency curve in real time during scanning process, so you may see how the scanner is locking voltage points and tuning each point of the curve while searching for the maximum stable GPU clock

    Why is Windows Turning My GPU Fans Off?

    I noticed a whine in my new computer the other day and thought maybe my PSU was going out. But it turns out that my GPU fans were not spinning (I think maybe the other system fans were running faster to try and cool it down?)

    Regardless of the whine, when I boot the PC the fans spin up no problem, but once Windows starts to load, the fans quit and do not restart even when a game is launched. This seems like some sort of driver issue because I installed MSI Afterburner and used it
    to turn the fans on, and they run no problem.

    Seems like either Nvidia set the fans to not spin on the card when it's not under load, or Windows is turning it off. Is there a power setting for this or something?

    I had been having a few strange crashes which could easily be explained by the GPU over heating. I don't really want to have to run Afterburner all the time just to get my fans to spin. Any ideas?

    I'm on Windows 10 64-bit (updated)

    GTX 960

    Ryzen 1600x

    Gigabyte Ab350m-hd3

    32GB of DDR4 RAM

    A Corsair SSD
