Question about Abit RX600PRO-GURU RADEON X600 PRO GURU, (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Core fan Abnormal - Fan Speed 0 rpm - System slowdown

I have replaced cooling fan on graphics card with a new fan.
I don't see any improvement.
Is it because of a power cables on new fan are directly connected on power supply instead of connecing them on graphics card fan cable connector?
It is a same 3pin connector but it differs in its size.
Graphics card core engine still show 0 rpm. The graphics card may not recognize a fan probably and that's why te computer sysem slow down.

    Thermal paste came with the new fan and was applied as I have followed instructions for assembly exactly as they were writen.Thermal paste coat I have applied on graphics card chipset for sure. Now there is connector for graphics card fan on graphics card body as it comes from vendor.3 pins. For a new ZALMAN fan I had to use universal cable /that cable came wit a cooling fan pack.cable brings power of 5v or 12v or something like that/ to connect fan through his cable on one of P 4pin connectors on pwr supply.ZALMANs fan connector is a bit bigger in size and it doesn't fit in ATIs connector. That why it is going through pwr supply.OC Guru engine still shows 0 rpm and system is not giving desired output firstly, taking input secondly.

    But after a few restarts it improve a little bit, till next shut down.Then the story with slow output on screen repeat with program is not responding error messages or just too slow interface just if I select application with TAB+Alt buttons.

    Hello, old RX600 ProGuru is gone by now. It doesn't mean that the card doesn't work anymore but I have that card replaced with a new GeForce 8800GTX and I have provided a new power supply as well but the problem remains unsolved.

    System is running slow and giving out inappropriate response. When system is not having good interface after restart I just got to restart computer again. There, one out of four restarts will let the computer running smooth but only for a small portion of a time.

    Problem is somewhere else. I am without clue.

    This problem start wen i was installin one of the 2K games.

    In "Read me" there was a note telling that system may recognize some patches as Trojans.

    I need a help.

Well, since you connected your fan directly to the power supply, you are not getting any feedback thru the graphics card interface. This doesn't mean there is a problem since your fan is running full speed all the time, it is actually better and you should be able to see a difference on the GPU temperature.
If the GPU temperature is still too high and the fan is running at full speed, did you apply a thin coat of thermal paste on the heatsink? if not, there is your problem.

Now just to be clear did you connect the fan to the power supply or to a spare motherboard connector. If you connected to your motherboard, you need to go in the BIOS and change some settings regarding the fan speed (let me know if this is the case and I'll help you further about that.)

    Well then the fan is running full speed all the time which is really good, any way you could check the temperature of your GPU with OC guru? Else use Rivatuner ( http://www.guru3d.com/index.php?page=riv... ) to check it, you can also check the core and memory speed to make sure than your GPU is running at its optimum speed. As I said before, you will not see your fan speed anymore on any utility as it is not connected to the GPU connector thus it is not giving any feedback, but it's running so nothing to worry there. Also try uninstalling the graphics drivers with rivatuner and reinstall the latest ones.



    Let me know what happens.

Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Pavle Suboti.

Your computer is overheating and is shutting the video off to prevent damage. It is most likely the graphics card that is suffering from too much heat. Clean the card of dust if present.

Also it is important to install lots of 120mm fans in modern computer systems to expell heat and introduce freash cool air from outside the case into the system.

Use a program called MSI Afterburner to adjust fan speed to a set heat vs fan speed curve. This allows one to set fan speed higher for high tempreatures. For a cool graphics card.

Leave the program open to see how hot your graphics card gets.

Chat to gaming friends or google to learn how to use MSI Afterburner effectively.

A cool systems is a happy system.

Take care!
Norman-Wynne Damstra.

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

The cooling fan is supposed to come on when the /ac compressor clutch cycles on, and off when it cycles off.
The idle speed kicks up to compensate for the additional a/c compressor load and the additional alternator load. usually, just the low speed comes on until it hits a much higher temperature.

the system should cycle 4 to 7 times/minute at 79 degrees F.

Here are some things to consider:(The PCM (engine computer) is NEVER defective, don't replace it). I don't think it is the ECT (engine coolant temp sensor) or the Cylinder Head Temp Sensor. Or the VSS or the MAF sensors.


The electronically controlled fan clutch is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM) based upon requests for airflow to cool the engine, transmission and A/C condenser. If no cooling is required, the electronics permit the fan to spin at a slower speed yielding improved fuel economy.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inoperative or damaged:
  • Electronically actuated fan clutch
  • Electronically actuated fan clutch controller
  • Wiring, connectors, relays or modules
  • Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor (4.0L SOHC)
  • Cylinder Head Temperature (CHT) sensor (4.6L [3V])
  • Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
  • Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
  • ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the cause is not visually evident, connect the scan tool to the Data Link Connector (DLC).
Retrieve any DTC Codes (Diagnostic Test Code). Autozone will do for free.

--------------------------------------------------------------

The cooling fan clutch actuator valve controls the fluid flow from the reservoir into the working chamber. Once viscous fluid is in the working chamber, shearing of the fluid results in fan rotation.

The cooling fan clutch actuator valve is activated with a pulse width modulated (PWM) output signal from the powertrain control module (PCM). By opening and closing the fluid port valve, the PCM can control the cooling fan clutch speed. The cooling fan clutch speed is measured by a Hall-effect sensor and is monitored by the PCM during closed loop operation.

The PCM optimizes fan speed based on engine coolant temperature (ECT), engine oil temperature (EOT), transmission fluid temperature (TFT), intake air temperature (IAT), or air conditioning requirements. When an increased demand for fan speed is requested for vehicle cooling, the PCM monitors the fan speed through the Hall-effect sensor. If a fan speed increase is required, the PCM outputs the PWM signal to the fluid port, providing the required fan speed increase.

Why ??? A water cooling system will not improve anything.. Just make sure that you have decent heatsinks and fans fitted with case fans that both draw air into the case and push it out. I run a quad core pentium with an Nvidia NX graphics card, 3 gig ram and five hard drives. I use five fans in all and my case temp has never gone above 44 degree's even when it is 40 degrees ambient. So, use decent heatsinks and fans and you should not have any problems..

Overclock fan speed question


The amount that you can overclock you're video card differes for each individual card. The limiting factors are temperatures and stability. If games start crashing, etc you should back off the overclocking. Also keep in mind the temperature of the card. Increasing fan speeds will lower the temperatures of the card. Increasing the fan speed (as long as you don't go beyond 100%) will not damage the card... It will be louder though. For the 9800gt, the maximum temperature before damage is 105 degrees C. Try to keep the temperatures at 80 or below optimally. Increasing the fan speed is the best way to accomplish this.

See (in the CMOS SETUP ) if the processor temperature is between 30 and about 50 degrees celcius. If it is way above that then the thermal paste between the fan and the processo has hardened and the contactbetween the processor and the fan is POOR . Replace the paste withy NEW paste. (a thin layer) That usually sorts out that problem.

Problem with the CPU cooling fan...!! :-(


Dear ARGHYA,
welll i can understand this, for this you can apply the Heatsink Grease between CPU and CPUFAN . it will help to reduce the CPU Temprature.

Hi Naida, A while back I had a computer that was having all kinds of video issues after it had been on for a little bit. I pulled the video card out and like you was able to free spin the fan and didn?t see any dust worth mentioning. Also like you I ran the computer with the case open to verify the fan was actually spinning but noticed there really wasn?t much air being moved. I removed the fan from the card and to my surprise found that the cards heatsink directly underneath the center of the fan was blocked with a solid ball of dust I couldn't see before. Cleaned that out, reassembled and I was good to go. If that doesn?t do it you might consider replacing the card fan. They?re small, cheap and run full board on gaming machines. Since you?ve gotten some messages indicting your software detects 0 rpm it would be a logical and cheap thing to try. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this post.
