Edit: My bad, I see that the other is a Gigabyte card. But do look into the BIOS version (CCC>Information>Hardware) of the XFX. Maybe do
on the issue for that particular card.
Here is one
. Not sure if it pertains, I don't have the time to look right now.

Sorry you spent time looking that up, I appreciate it but I knew about that one already. That is for the base model xfx 6850 and idle fan was at 70% on that card
. I used to have this card all by itself, afterburner worked perfectly. Just when I put it in crossfire as card 2. I am 99% sure it has to do with ULPS (ultra low power state). Afterburner works fine for about 2-3 seconds then when ULPS turns off the 2nd card to conserve power it kicks back to "stock" fan profile, which is 40% speed. It just annoying because 30% is silent, 40% is actually quite loud. My PC is otherwise silent and it's near where I sit while watching TV etc so it's annoying that it does this.
I can disable ULPS with Regedit, but I am wondering if that's where this "99%" of gpu2 glitch comes from?
I shouldn't have to do this haha. I wish there was a way to flash a fan profile onto the card itself.
