  1. Im running EVGA Precision with my EVGA GTX570 Superclocked GFX card and for some reason i cant take the fan speed above 85%. I have the latest version of the EVGA Precision/Riva Tunner also the latest Nvidia drivers installed. Can anybody tell me if there experiencing the same problem or how to fix this issue? With the card i had before an GTX275 i had no problem cranking the fan speed up to 100%. Anybody any ideas?

    The reference GTX 570 -regardless of vendor- is BIOS-locked to a maximum of 85%.

    Since your card is EVGA reference you can reflash with the Fan Unlocker BIOS update if you choose to.

    "Download the correct .zip file below for your graphics card:
    v1.0 012-P3-1570-XX - EVGA GeForce GTX 570
    v1.0 012-P3-1572-XX - EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked
    v1.0 012-P3-1571-XX - EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD
    v1.0 012-P3-1573-XX - EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD Superclocked"

    So i download the second zip file(v1.0 012-P3-1572-XX - EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked). Or the last(v1.0 012-P3-1573-XX - EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD Superclocked)?

    According to the thread, no, flashing the BIOS will not invalidate the warranty as the BIOS is an official EVGA release. I assume you registered the card with EVGA, so if you are in doubt I would suggest you post on the thread and ask Jacob directly.
