Re: Untick "Fan always on"?
"Q. The Fan always on doesn`t seem to work
A. The 'fan always on' option is for cards with the OTES (i.e. 5800U) or similar cooling system in which shuts off in 2d mode. It will force fan on even in 2D mode. Of course this means the fans on the hs/f be designed such a way that this option can work."
So, if its not default in your card, I wouldn't mess with it.
Certain graphics cards would be able to have it off in 2D programs though and still get efficent cooling, but others I'm guessing if the heatsinks aren't capable would start artifacting.
So, if its on already, keep it there.
