the readings on the CCC is insane (-128c) .. please read the post from the above.
No idea. He complained about this issue about a month or two back, checked the temps, same -165 degree on the core and over 1000 on the VRMs etc. Running furmark seem to kick the temp sensors back to action.
Some time afterwards, even the furmark stopped helping, so we changed the cooler. Now its working great, no noise. The sensor keeps coming and going though...
Hope this helps.
The wiring on that controller and the vga fan plug should be the same. I'd do a little ghetto modding, nothing too difficult. Either cut the header off the fan controller so you have the wiring exposed and then insert the wires into the vga fan plug(making sure they stay in securely) that way you don't mess up your fan, or if you don't want to bother with this and you can still RMA the card, RMA it
sadly, this card is more than 2 years old (and the guarantee is just 2 years) and I bought from a local store here in egypt
Then I don't see any reasons for not "modding" the fan a little bit. You could get one of theese:
and then connect the fan to either a controller or to a header on the motherboard.
The above post is your best bet along with the controller you posted earlier.
I ran FurMark burn test for 15 minutes .. at the end of the test, the fan started to change it's speed .. and the heat sensors kicked back in.
Now, it's working just fine .. but I don't know how long will this last
Wow good deal! Just be careful with FurMark cuz it will make the 6970's VRM's run smoking hot to the point of killing your cards VRM's. Thanks for the update.
Maybe the heat reconnected a broken circuit?
Would You be so kind and send me copy of this VGA BIOS made with CPU-Z? Thanks in advance for your time and, once again, please send me copy of this BIOS because there is impossible to find anywhere on the net! Thanks again!
