Hello, I like using a static fan speed instead of manually setting up in the msi afterburner. Due to summer season I get somewhat increased temps in my GPU when gaming, I own a gtx 1050 ti 4gb and afterburner indicates fan speed starts at %45 up to %100, I already lowered the power limit to %70 but it seems that helped a little not too much. I am playing in mostly 1280x720 and/or 1440x900 in AAA games within a 20fps limit as a extreme measure since my pc case is not modern so not alot of cooling. I use home fan for the hard drives but not for the gpu. What static fan speed should I be using for both lifespan of the gpu fan and temperature, %53 is too much? I do not want to hurt the gpu fan,

Thank you and good day to you,

1440x900 with a 20fps limit? what kind of games are you playing.. and i tend to run my cards at around 50-60% fan speed at load and whatever the lowest the card supports for idle. Just set a custom fan curve in afterburner that switches over once your GPU reaches a typical minimum load temp like at 60c+
