GTX 590 Spiking Fan Speed under no load
  1 / 9    
My GTX590 fan will spike up to about 100% and slowly come down to normal in approx 5-6 seconds. This happens at random it seems. The system is usually under no load and prior I've checked the temps when this happens and they are <40C on both cores. I've recently reloaded my system and don't have any additional software loaded such as tuning tools, just the stock Nvidia drivers and Windows 7 OS, fan has spiked a couple times now since the reload.

Anyone else having this issue or know what is causing it? Don't think it's a danger to the hardware but odd it would do this.

What driver are you using? Supposedly the new beta 285.27 fixes this issue.

Will wait a little while before loading that Beta driver. Thanks for the info, I hope the new driver does.

I've had the same problem after i upgraded to 280.26 driver. Downgrading back to 275.33 fixes this problem. I'm not sure about new BETA 285.xx driver since i didn't try it out.

I can confirm the beta driver does NOT resolve this issue. I am on 285.38 and it randomly spikes with temperature rising and then the fan goes to max and quickly ramps the speed back down as temperature quickly returns to normal. This is again under no load with me browsing websites.

Anyone know any other suggestions for how to fix? Thanks.

This is also an issue with official 285.62 driver. NVIDIA FIX THIS ALREADY!!!!! going back to 275.33!

What I can tell from what happens when the spikes occur is that the clock speed on both core and memory spike considerably.

Thank you all for the feedback. I have filed a bug but I would appreciate it if anyone else with this issue can post further informantion in this thread including video BIOS version, Geforce GTX 590 card maker and when do you see the fan spin up to 100% on your system?

Hi,

I have EVGA Classified, running stock. I recently flashed my bios' 70.10.37.00.90 -> 92 and 70.10.37.00.91 -> 93
Currently on 285.62 but honestly don't know when i noticed it. Definitely with 285.38 also.
I usually uninstall Graphics Driver and PhysX via Windows, reboot and install just those 2 options. On installing 285.62, for the first time i checked "Fresh install".
I notice it while at the desktop surfing with Firefox 7 and the window becomes unresponsive for the few seconds that it lasts.

I will not load Ff on my next boot and then report back with other occurrences.

Thanks for your time. A few other SS if helpful:

I have the same exact problem. My card is an OEM Nvidia GTX 590 with VBIOS 70.10.37.00.01/02. Came with my Alienware Aurora.

The problem started after driver 280.26, and still happens on the newest 285.62. I notice it most often when I see my idle temps starting to get a bit warmer when surfing the net or watching a video.

I will see my temps creep up (using EVGA Precision to monitor) to about the mid 50's (from the low to mid 40's) and then get the random spike. Only using 275.33 fixes the issue, and overall, my temps are lower with those drivers.

I thought it might have been the BIOS, so I even tried the EVGA Classified BIOS with a no go, although, it occured less often with that BIOS for me.

Hi ManuelG,

Thanks for looking out for this! I have an EVGA Classified GTX 590 as well with all stock settings.
VBIOS is 70.10.37.00.90 for GPU1 and 70.10.37.00.91 for GPU2. This seems very odd to me why the two VBIOS are actually different.

Driver version I am on is 285.62, but I experienced this earlier with those Battlefield 3 beta drivers too.
Windows 7 x64 SP1.
