Adding a fan slider to your NVIDIA Driver
If you are using Linux there is a way to “uplift” the driver to provide a fan speed slider so that you can increase fan rpm and cooling. On Ubuntu Linux you can do:
1. sudo nvidia-xconfig –cool-bits=4
3. launch nvidia-settings from command line or from the “Dash Home”.
4. click on “Thermal Settings” for your GPU.
5. Note the “enable gpu fan settings checkbox” and the fan slider.
