Once again, i am in need of TPU-help...

I just installed a new RM850x psu and i then ran GPU-Z, but im not sure what make of the logfile and onscreen presentation. It says that my fanspeed is 0%, although my fans are spinning like they should, or? Slightly confused...

I hope someone can take a quick look at it! Thanks in advance!

Well the GPU-Z logfile says the both fans are stopped (both % and rpm).

What was the graphics card doing during these measurements?

I have an ASUS 3060 Ti in a different build. My card's GPU chip power draw is about 3W during idle and the GPU temperature is about 31 °C but I have configured the card's fan curves to run slowly during idle (600 rpm for both GPU fans); the card's fans won't park.

Hmm yeah, that's what i was wondering about... How do i know which fan is active and which is not?

The GPU was not doing anything, other than having the browser window open as i wrote the post.

The fan curves, do i do that in BIOS, or?

And the GPU chip power draw... how do i change that? Yours is very low while mine is...well around 15W...

You're overreacting.

Most GPUs have an auto fan off when it gets cool enough.

Wattage will go down on idle. This is power saving and heat reducing.

Not 100% of the time is software going to be correct.

When my graphics card fans spin, they all spin. I currently have a few ASUS GeForce cards, a 2070 SUPER Founders Edition, and one EVGA 3050. I have some older (Polaris) Radeon cards that also function the same way.

Looking at a monitoring tool like HWiNFO or GPU-Z the fans are always within a few rpms of each other. They don't spin up or down autonomously.

The fan curves, do i do that in BIOS, or?
I use the utility from the card manufacturer. For my ASUS graphics cards I use ASUS GPUTweak. I have an EVGA card for my daily driver build so I use EVGA's Precision X1 utility for that card. These utilities can control the fan revolutions for each fan separately. I suppose you could fiddle with these to figure out which one is Fan 1 and which one is Fan 2. I don't see the point since I want all the fans to spin when they're on. My custom fan curves are applied when Windows boots.

I don't know what Gigabyte offers in terms of software utilities for their graphics cards. Read the manual (if there is one) or head over to the Gigabyte support website.

My understanding is that MSI Afterburner can control graphics card fans but I've never tried it.

The BIOS/UEFI on my various motherboards do not have any control over the graphics card fan operation.

And the GPU chip power draw... how do i change that? Yours is very low while mine is...well around 15W...
Again the graphics card's manufacturer's utility should provide some ability to performance tune the card although I'm not sure if you can get your card idling at 15W down to 3W. My hunch is that something is using the GPU circuitry on your card that my card is not seeing.

I am using Nvidia's latest Game Ready WHQL approved drivers from the Nvidia website. I stick with the factory overclock, I am not performance tuning any of my graphics cards these days.
