RivaTuner,couple of quick questions.....Hardware Monitoring
Just started running RivaTuner 2.06 with lates gefroce drivers(163.75).I guess under hardware monitoring CPU0 is the pc usage.I have that running in the tray along with core temp.

Right now core temp shows 48 at fixed 31 fan speed. While just the usual web browsing ect.

Can you get fan speed to show down there?
Is there a simple link to set up fan control?I read it in a post but can't find it now.

What is a good fan speed everyone uses,is 60 or something I read.I want to get higher speeds as gets hotter and for pc to shut down when it boils.

Running XFX 7600GT256 DDR3 AGP.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

First post doesn't allow links :sad:, link to a Riva Tuner guide in next post:thumb:

Here's the link:

RivaTuner v2.02 Guide at .:: Derek’s Blog

Or this one:

RivaTuner 2.0 fan speed & Overclock Guide

- I had to use the tweak descibed in the last page (Power Tuner) to get Riva Tuner working properly for me.

Good Luck with your oc!

The 7600 GT doesn't have a fan speed sensor (at least my eVGA 7600 GT KO didn't), so you'll have to do it by duty cycle instead.

Rivatuner's hardware monitoring feature is awesome. Not only does it show you all sorts of info and give you the option of logging info for diagnostic purposes, but you can also have it run all sorts of commands based on what's going on (i.e. you can have it adjust fan speed based on temperature, adjust clocks based on framerate, etc.) I find it to be really, really handy ...
