    Palit 4870x2.

    If I set the fan speed in CCC to 100% (and I know it's at 100% as it sounds like vacuum cleaner), GPU-Z (0.3.4) is reporting Fan Speed (%) at 40% and Fan Speed (RPM) at ~4900.

    If I drop the fan speed to 20% in CCC the RPMs goes to about 900, but the fan speed % never changes from 40%.

    Just wondering what the fan speed % is supposed to be telling me.

    I have the original Palit HD 4870x2 (not the "Revolution"). I thought that was a reference design.
    I, of course, could be completely wrong on that :D

    Thought I'd bump this thread for HD 4770

    Thanks for the nice app.
    I have 2X 4770 in crossfire.
    on the sensor page you have 2 fan speed indicators
    My top one is correct, the bottom speed says 1% all the time, is this because there is only 1 fan on my card or can I use the other fan speed indicator to show a different value if its not reading an additional sensor?
    everything else monitors perfectly thx.

    Appears to be a bug, like W1z said. I can't find nothing on this issue :(

    Have you tried seeing what RivaTuner shows?

    Yes, Wizzard, GPUz only shows 40% on my reference design sapphire 4870x2 as well.
