Searched threads for quite awhile and only came up with this one: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=118012&referrerid=83726 which says this is a normal function for ATI boards with a built-in fan. I am wondering: is there any way to turn it off? Or at least decrease it to 20% or something reasonable? For an otherwise silent PC/living room, the 6 - 10 sec burst from the video card fan at every start-up/wake from sleep is annoying. I tried editing the BIOS with RBE, but I am not sure if I'm doing anything to affect the power on routine. suggestions?
