Unlock GTX 560 fan speed?
Just got myself a couple of GTX 560Ti cards, put them in SLI, working fine with no problems.

I'd like to be able to push the cards further, but for whatever reason the cards will not exceed 75% of fan speed.

Is there any way of unlocking this? Thanks.

try getting an app like evga precision tuner or MSI afterburner and use them to manually control them.

Tried multiple programs including those, if I try to set a speed above 75%, it just 'jumps' back to 75%. Afterburner won't even let me move the slider past 75%.

If the cards aren't eVGA, you may be out of luck. eVGA has released "fan unlocker" BIOSes (that're covered under warranty) for all their current 5xx-series cards, I'd figure a 560 series BIOS is next... but it'd only work for an eVGA card.
