Most components on the computer when operating will radiate heat, especially the CPU, graphics card, computer power (if the PC) ...

So manufacturers often come equipped with a heatsink, usually a fan with heatsink to help reduce the temperature of the machine, this helps your computer can operate more stable and durable. than.

For discrete video card, it is required to have a cooling device attached, at least from 1 to 3 fans with heatsink plate, more terrible is the water radiator.

Regarding the rotation speed of the fan, usually it will be installed by the manufacturer for you, and by default, you can not manually adjust it to spin faster or spin slower than you like.

#first. A quick introduction to MSI Afterburner

Surely you are not too strange with this software anymore, this is a very familiar FPS display software of many gamers.

However, many people still do not know that this is an extremely powerful software, it allows you to overclock (overclock), unlocking the power of the graphics card that you currently own.

You may think: "This software only works with MSI graphics cards as the name implies, and it must be like ASUS GPU Tweak II, Zotac Firestorm Utility, ...".

Yes ! If you are thinking that way, it is completely wrong, this software has the ability to manage and overclock all popular graphics cards today, so you can safely use it!

Of course, I will not go into the overclocking issue of graphics card, or display FPS in the game because there is a fairly long blog post detailing this issue, you can review that article. Here: How to OverClock / display CPU, FPS, RAM, GPU ... when playing Game

As I said at the beginning of the article, VGA fan speed will often be regulated by manufacturers to optimize the product and fan life.

For example, the AMD graphics card I am using, the fan will only spin when the temperature that the sensor is measured reaches 60oC and speed increases gradually with the temperature of VGA.

But when using MSI Afterburner, I will usually turn the fan and keep the temperature at 30 * C to reduce the heat in the Case.

If you also want to reset the rotation speed of the fan like me, follow the instructions below.

#2. How to reset the cooling fan rotation speed of Graphics Card

+ Step 5: Next, item Fan speed update period (in miliseconds) In milliseconds, it tells you the time between fan speed updates.

The default time is 5000ms, equivalent to 5 seconds. The smaller this value is, the more frequently the fan speed will update.

You can arbitrarily change but also should not be over it because then the fan speed will be constantly changing, more or less reduce fan life.

And if you prefer more comfort, want to keep the fan spinning at a speed like 50% or 100%, for example, that's OK.
