Default Going from ATI to Nvidia

ATI cards you can control the speed of the fans. Can you do the same with Nvidia ones too?

Yes, I use RivaTuner but the latest plugin from NVidia seems to have the setting as well.

This is comming from a Typical 'Red' User. I really like the EVGA Percision Tuning tool, it has the same kind of fan control that ATI has.
Good layout really,

wow same shoes as me buddy.

x300 se
x700 pro
x850 xt
and now 8800 gts g92

ati have too much conflicts for me. some games i play have issues with ati driver. ati cards are usually way louder too which gets annoying especially my x850xt.

i jus download ntuner and it does let u control stuff... like aa, af, ect... no idea about the fan control though

I just went the other way - 9800gtx+ to 4870. But I do love the nvidia cards. Precision works very well. One thing I found is that my system really didn't work well after the transplant until I did a clean install of the OS. Your mileage, as they say, may vary.
