Graphics Card 7600GT Nvidia makes noise after game

  erkmatrix 13:45 26 Aug 2006

My new graphics card everytime I play a game it motors up and makes a racket and this goes on even after I've finished the game, normally its quiet if I boot up and not play a game. Have I got a faulty card or need to change some setting. the noise only goes away after about 10 mins of no game.

I assume that it has it's own cooling system, it's probably the fan.

All that nVidia Range have forced air cooling

its quite loud though, anyway I can make it quieter?

you can get quiet coolers that you can fit to replace the ones that come with the card. you will have to search to find out if there is one to fit your card.

How new is it? Send it back, as it is obviously defective.
