    hey guys i have one 7970 that has a faulty temp sensor, and because the fan is set to auto by default the fan blasts to 100% due to no temp reading being provided to it so it makes great noise on every startup and i have to put up with that noise for a couple of minutes before i can load up my sapphire trixx quite fan profile

    so can someone default the fan for me to 30% instead of auto to avoid this issue ?

    i always have run this card on fixed fan speeds for months and i'm aware of what i'm asking for

    if someone out there can hex edit the bios that i will attach here i will be very thankful :respect:

    thanks !

    I saw you ask darkhmz regarding this...

    can you post what kind of card you have at the moment?

    and also try to use MSI afterburner instead... i found it trixx to load slower during startup than afterburner...

    it's a reference 7970 GHz edition engineering sample ....

    only trixx can control it's voltage , msi afterburner just doesn't allow me to change it's voltage ...

    it looks just like any other reference 7970 though ...

    i got an idea, what if i cut the wire of the 4th pwm pin in the fan ? that way i can cut the link that gives the fan the order to blast 100% on every startup, no ?!

    You could use MSI's Afterburner or Sapphire Trixx to control de fan manually.

    If you want the fan to run at a constant %100, that would work. You could always wire the fan into a fan controller too.

    buying an after market cooler for it with the new generation of gpus coming out soon doesn't make that much sense , maybe i will sell it as it is for a discounted price to someone willing to deal with the 100% fan start up and get my self a new 280x instead .... ? would cost about the same as getting an 85$ cooler for it ( local prices )
