    Hi,

    Yesterday i got the new Gigabyte non reference HD4870 with 1 GB Vram and Zalman fan

    This one

    http://www.i-tech.com.au/products/36795_Gigabyte_GV_R487D5_1GD_ATI_HD4870.aspx

    Anyway its run very cool about 41 C but the fan cant be adjusted on this model in the CCC panel. I can hear the fan at idle.

    The fanspeed is not detected at all and was told because it has only 2 fan wires i cant adjust it.

    Is there any other way i can adjust it? If not i might have to take it back tomorrow.

    Looks like the card is only 2pin so you can't adjust the fan speed at all.

    I took it back and got the Sapphire 1GB version. Much better.
