[ 1/25/2010 9:57:58 PM] Hei, i have a problem with the FAN control of my XFX Radeon HD 4770. As soon as i start any 3D Game the FAN starts blowing stronger which is normal because the GPU is loaded. But it doesnt blow at a constant speed. Its like the graphic card starts "breathing" - it blows maybe 3 seconds fast and then returns to normal speed for 3-4 seconds. Thats really annoying. I heard there is some kind of "Firmware Update" on this homepage, but i cant find it! Could you help me out? Regards
[SHAUN_T 1/26/2010 9:21:28 AM] Hi, thanks for your message. Im afraid there are no BIOS updates available for your graphics card
at the moment. So does the fan repeatedly increase then decrease over and over again until you shut down the game? Has the fan always behaved in this way since you first installed the graphics card into your system? Kind regards, Shaun.
[ 1/26/2010 6:26:40 PM] Hello Shaun, i found a customers review on a link which said that the XFX Support sent him a Firmware Update or some kind of fix to solve that issue. But to answer your question: Yes the card has this "bug" since i bought it. (was about 2 month ago) - And yes the fan repeatedly increase then decrease over and over again until i exit the game. Regards. Here is the link where i found the information about the fix: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150369
