    Hi. I've got an nVidia GeForce GT 220 GPU on my tower PC. When playing games, the fan is not going to speed up. Only the CPU fan is speeding up. I tried changing the speeds manually but nothing happened. Here is a list of the programs I tried:
    nVidia Control Panel
    MSI Afterburner
    RivaTuner
    Performance(nVidia)
    SpeedFan
    ASUS GPU Tweak

    Only SpeedFan was able to monitor the fan speeds, but it wasn't able to change them!. When I tried to speed up the fans to 100%, they were still low!
    Please note that I can't buy a fan controller!

    Are you sure SF didn't work? It seems to work for me (I do have a newer card though) and my speeds adjusted fine. It may be that that GPU isn't "supported" and you can't change the fan speeds.

    What are the maximum temps your graphics card reaches? If it's not getting hot, the fan need not speed up.
