    I wanted to report a possible bug in GPU-Z

    With the PowerColor 5850 PCS + reading speed of the fan suffers abnormal and continue changes from 900 to 2000 RPM, despite the percentage speed remain stable.

    I use Catalyst 10.2 and gpu-z 0.3.9

    Best Regards

    Hi,

    It may not be GPU-Z issue.

    Sometimes fans give noisy RPM output signal (especially at low voltage / speed) and that makes the fan controller think that speed is very high.

    I've seen this behaviour on almost any CPU / GPU solution by Arctic Cooling...
    The fan is rotating at 500RPM and every now and then it reports 2000, 5000, or even more.

    Just ignore it.

    Cheers,
