    Video Card - ASUS 9800gt Ultimate It's a dual slot video card with a better cooling system. Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121266 The cooling system is the same as the "EVGA Akimbo Cooler."

    Whenever I start up a game the fan speed increases and the fan gets very loud (can hear it in more than 1 room in house). Once I exit the game, the fan after a minute or so becomes quiet again.

    I used ASUS Smartdoctor to manually adjust fan speed and automatically adjust fan speed and both didn't work. Manual worked until I started a game, and fan went to becoming loud again.

    Uninstalled Smartdoctor, installed Nvidia nTune, results were same as above.

    I don't know why the manual fan speed setting doesn't keep a consistent noise level. No matter what I do the fan ends up reaching the same loud noise level. If I can't stop the fan speed from increasing, what would be a generally good % to set it at to reduce noise?

    Edit: I used the Nvidia Physx Cloth Demo while using RivaTuner to view gpu temps. Right when I started the demo, the fan speed increased. While doing the demo, the gpu temp was at a constant 48 degrees celcius.
