Hi recently my MSI GTX 970 will spin up at the set temp but then it won't stop spinning or spin down till I restart/sleep/shutdown my computer. Any tips or is it just a side effect of an old card? Thanks
 
Can you control the fan speed by using any GPU tool like MSI Afterburner ? Is your GPU having the fan STOP 0dB feature, meaning under idle mode, multimedia, light gaming the fans won't SPIN ?? Which Power supply unit are you using ?

yeah the fans dont spin when they arent supposed to when below 55C which is what i have it set at but once it gets above it they spin up and don't stop no matter if the temp drops to 30 again. Fractal design integra 450watt

This looks like an issue related to the "sensor", either on the GPU itself, or there might be some bug with the software. For some reason, if suppose the fans are NOT stopping, despite the GPU staying on 30C,.then I think some issue is there with the sensors.

I'm NOT full sure though. Just a guess.. Like I asked before, can you control the fan speed by using any GPU tool like MSI Afterburner ? What happens when you click on the AUTO button for the Fan Speed value (MSI AB) ?? Do they stop spinning ?
