    NBN in trouble?

    I'm just lucky that I'll have the current version of the NBN by the end of May... I am hoping that the Libs don't change it as planned - for everyone elses sake...
  2. Well it seems pretty fine now. After 2 days of use not a single mad fast spinning fan on the GPU... What I did was: I removed the card and reinstalled it and then updated (again, as it was already the latest) drivers from nVidia. Bang, no more issues... As for temperatures - the highest it got to was 55 degrees and that was after a 3 hour marathon with Far Cry 3 with ALL options set to ultra. The only thing that happened was the fan began to speed up a bit more during the game for a few minutes (and the air coming out was quite hot) and then dropped back to a normal low level again. Thx for the advice all...
  3. Hi all, My new computer was running beautifully. Then all of a sudden the GPU fan begins spinning at full speed for no reason for about 2 - 8 mins then slows down again. That has happened a few times and now if I don't turn my machine off for at least 10 minutes it spins madly continuously once it starts going 'spinning' mad. I have a Galaxy Geforce 670 with 2GB DDR5 and it is 10 days old... It does not spin super fast because it is overheated as the case is so very cool and even if I open it up it continues to spin fast - once it kicks into it's fast moments... ANY ideas? I have tried using Galaxy's Xtreme Tuner to control the fan but it does not work once the fan speed goes mental. It does work in normal use as I can manually change the fan speed and you can hear it working and changing. Thanks for any advice.

    Thanks all - still weighing up my options but at least I've decided on not going for the 660 Ti and will instead pay a little more for the 670 as it has larger bandwidth...
