    I downloaded v2.02 of this utility cause i read that i can change the fan speed on my 8800GTS with it's help. Currently the fan runs at 60% (around 1500RPM) aacording to Everest Ultimate. So my question is this, what exactly do i have to do in Riva Tuner to force the fan to run at 100% when i'm gaming, i never used this program before and i don't want to play with the settings on my own. Can anyone help me me with this?

    Damn, i was looking for it in the wrong place, i went to to System Setting in Forceware section. Anyway, thanks for clearing this up.

    By the way is it ok to keep it at 100% all the time?

    Actually i don't hear much noise from it at all. I have a desk fan that is blowing cool air onto my system and this is the only fan that i actually hear. Even after i turned it off i could still barely hear it, it was kind of drowned by the soiund from other system fans.

    Your comment brings me to another question, when i was looking for the way to control the fan i went to System Settings instead of Low-Level System Settings. There is a fan setting inb there as well, whats the deal with the 2D, low power 3D and performance 3D? Can i control the fan from there instead of the other area? Is this a better way to manage it?
