Question No RPM reading for GPU Fans even though they are spinning ?


Jan 30, 2022
Hello. I have a Strix RX 6700 XT that works just fine except for one thing, the fans RPM shows 0 on ALL monitoring software even though the fans are spinning. I have tried both Bios switch positions and have updated to a different Bios, all with the same result. I'm having a hard time trying to find info on how the actual speed signal is created. Do the fans themselves create the signal or is there a hardware monitoring chip located on the card itself responsible for this task? I do have a new set of fans but I don't want to install them until I learn more on how they operate. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
