    Ok, I have a issue where the fans are not running even at idle with my ASUS Strix GTX 980 Ti. Under Windows and the provided software from the maker had a feature I could turn the fans on at idle. I believe it was something to do with no sound feature. I have been looking, with no luck so far, about getting the fans to turn on at idle under Ubuntu.

    Wondering if any of you, the awesome LGC Community at Large, know of or point me in the right direction to answer this riddle of sorts.

    Appreciate any and all help you can provide.

    That’s not a bug, it’s a feature. The 970 STRIX does the exact same thing.

    The fans only kick in when the GPU is at 60ºC. Saves power and reduces idle noise levels for the system as a whole. Which to this day, still scares me how my PC with an FX processor OC’ed at 4.2GHz and the aforementioned 970 doesn’t make a damn sound unless I run stress on all cores.


    Yeah, my 780ti is an even hotter part than that, and the fans hardly ever run until I start pushing some 60ferps 3D graphics.

    You can try something like:

    I don’t know if any of that still works, I don’t know why you’d want to do it, and I really don’t think it’s a good idea… most likely a foot-gun, but hey! That’s Linux.

    Have fun!

    If you want the fans to run all the times. Optionally, you can plug in three displays causing the [nope]cad[/nope] card to hang in performance mode.

    Thank you, thank you …

    I did some Googling and then went to the source, ASUS. Pretty much I learned what all of you have stated here. I was worrying for nothing. However, I am looking at putting in some new front fans that will put air across the card for a cooling effect.

    Thanks Guys, I appreciate your assistance and help.
