[SOLVED] GPU fans over 6000 RPM even after adjusting in MSI Afterburner


Feb 8, 2018
Hi. So when using the MSI Kombustor stress test or even trying to create an online character in GTA V my GPU goes to 90°C, 100% fan usage and over 6000 RPM (1. OpenHardwareMonitor 2. you can hear it :/ ). And that even after adjusting the fan control curve. When I manually set fan speed to 100% it goes to a little below 3000 RPM and it isn't as loud as a helicopter. But when in the character creation screen it goes to 6000 RPM, still 100% fan speed.

How can I fix this? How can I have a normal fan speed (that isn't as loud as a plane's engine)?
