I have a new Radeon 8500 I installed in a computer Im building to sell. It works great but the fan is ungodly loud. Its louder than the case fan. I tried the fan from another 8500 and its the same. I was wondering if there was a program to adjust the fan speed. There are no mounting hole in this card so I cant replace the fan.

Or you could go to your local electronics shop, buy a trimmer costing less than ¢50 and use that (some basic electronics skill required).

Thanks. I was hoping to do something in software. My mobo has a program called Silent Tek that lets me control all the fans in the system through Windows but not video card.
 
tere is a software for nvidia cards which is called RivaTune wich allows you to monitor your gpu temperatures and also change the gpu fan speed. But i havnt seen anything for Rdeon sorry.
