My fan speed is all messed up. Right when I start it up, it goes really loud from the start. It never did this. It is running constantly on the max fan speed, but CCC does not detect the fan speed, it just says 0%. 

It happened when I cleaned a bunch of dust out of the computer. I cleaned the graphics card and the computer out with air. When I plugged everything back up and turned on the PSU, it made a weird static like noise. Then when I started up the computer, it booted up fine. But it is so loud and annoying.

Most importantly, I know if there is no fan speed detection and it keeps running on max fan speed, it is going to die sooner or later and my GPU will have no cooling.

The fan speed is clearly running at 100%, but in CCC it says it is 0%?

What do I do? Can i fix this?

Also, i know this sounds crazy, for some reason I think my fan is running the opposite way, is that possible??? Maybe that's why there is no fan speed detection because it is going the other way?

Try to reseed the card and give it another cleaning. Check all your connections again and try it.

If it just started, it is quite possible something failed in the card. Years of thermal expansion and contraction wreaks havoc on electronics.

I already tried that. Same issue.

 

I was thinking about reinstalling the drivers and checking for a BIOS update, but I don't think that will make a difference because the problem happened after I put the card back in, and it goes at 100% right when I start the card.

But I also dont think I messed up anything, because if I did, I would think something more important would have messed up. I mean, the fan still has power...

Is it possible that my card actually does not have an adjustable fan? And that the dust was actually preventing some the noise? And now that I took it out, it is louder?

I had this card since Fall 2008, so many it just got old.

With only two wires feeding the fan, I'd say yes, it likely has no options for speed control.

Yea there is only two wires.

So I guess there is no fan control.

Any idea why it is significantly louder? This is not my imagination. This is my brother's computer, and he said it is louder too.

I opened the computer while it was on, and stopped the fan with my finger, and that is how I remember the computer is suppose to sound.

I dunno, maybe a dried out bearing. Maybe.. just maybe,  you can pull it off and give it a drop of oil??
