Hello everyone, first time posting.

I have a Zotac 1050ti Mini and its fans minimum speeds are 45%. I tried afterburner, Zotac own software, EVGA software and such and I simply can't lower the fans RPM.

Through some research I came to conclusion that a BIOS flashing could be needed, but I couldn't find a suitable BIOS, at least with the little knowledge I have. Could anyone suggest one?

The card is too loud as it is, and I only use the PC for writing code and sometimes play some indies.

Anyways, thanks in advance.

Regards,
bohrz

The fans have a physical limitation and also the bios are designed to keep people like you from burning up the card creating an unnecessary RMA from abuse.

If you want the fan quieter, do a improvisation by removing the existing fan and putting your own on with a rheostat or varistor/potentiometer.
Or go watercooling as I dont know if there is a Custom fanless heatsink for that card.

OK, fair enough. As always with tech forums, just a explanation would've been fine, but people have to attack. You don't know me, you don't know what I am like. I simply wanted a direction. You could've stopped on the fans limitation. Anyways, thank you for your time.

Here is your direction, like the last message from me

Use the tool.

Follow the guide.


Mini cards run hotter due to less pcb estate to wisk off the heat. That is the tradeoff for size constraints.

The smaller the card, the louder the fan.

This advantage of this, is that you can use 140mm fans. I did a ghetto mod on a R280 exactly as suggested here, worked out great.

@eidairaman1 might come off a bit harsh, but there isnt anyone better to have help you. :D

So in turn you attack all tech forums.
Perfect. :p
