  • Linux Lite: 3.6 64bit

  • CPU: Core 2 Duo

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel
So I have LL installed on a system with a Radeon 4870, it's a big old card with a loud blower fan, and it appears to constantly be running at 100% (or close to it). So it's very loud. Is there a way to limit the fan speed on it manually? Or are there drivers I should be installing so that fan ramps up with load? And I don't think it's the card overheating because when I log in to Windows Vista on the same system it's fan is quiet. Any tips would be great, thanks.

Also depending on your BIOS there are often performance settings (noise) onboard there.
