In this blog post, we’ll show you how to set fan curve in MSI afterburner. We’ll go over the basics of what a fan curve is and why it’s important for overclocking. The fan curve is a setting that controls the speed of your computer’s fans.
This allows you to tailor your system for optimal performance and noise levels, whether it be in terms of cooling or silence. The higher the fan speed, the more heat will be able to radiate away from your GPU – but at some point, this becomes counterproductive as too much airflow can actually cause instability in certain scenarios with hotter GPUs.
what is the fan curve in MSI afterburner?
Fan Curve is a feature in MSI’s Afterburner graphics card overclocking utility, which enables the adjustment of the fan to match your desired temperature. You can set it up to keep your GPU at its idle temperature, or you can make it spin faster to cool it down quicker for benchmarking runs.
This will allow your card’s cooling fans to scale based on how hot your card gets. The “boost” areas are preset according to the number of rotations per minute that are required for various degree selections inside MSI Afterburner. I have mine set so it goes from 2500 RPM at 60 degrees Celsius all the way up past 1400 RPM at 94 degrees Celsius, but feel free to adjust accordingly according to what you feel is best for you.
How To Set Fan Curve In MSI Afterburner
If you are looking to maximize cooling without compromising on noise then try these steps.
Open MSI Afterburner
Go to Setting
Click On Fan
Now check On enabling the user-defined option
Now its time to set your own custom fan curve in MSI Afterburner
After set, your fan curve clicks on Apply button.
What should my GPU fan curve be?
You can pick any fan speed you want, but be aware that the GPU on your PC is already very cool due to heat sinks and heat pipes.
The GPU’s on most PCs are cooled by a heatsink attached to one side of the card, which cools it by drawing air over the surface of the card and out through larger holes in either end. The resulting airflow pushes some air inside opposing “cooling fins” before it’s exhausted into your computer case.
A second hole on the other end makes sure that there is always fresh air entering from outside of your case while some exit at this hole towards your front intake fan.
The last big piece of cooling technology is copper heat pipes – these are metal tubes usually made out of copper or nickel that transport heat away from your GPU and transfer it to a heatsink.

How can I control my fan speed without BIOS ?
You can control the motherboard fan speed without BIOS by going into your CPU Mhz settings and changing your multiplier setting.
A 4x multiplier means a CPU at 2.8 GHz will send a full 4,000Mhz through all your fans; this is more than enough power to keep them running smoothly. If you want to use less power for the fans (say if you are overclocking but not at 100%), then choose 3x or 2x as necessary.
For anyone with overclockers deluxe (OCD) on their BIOS, then fan speed changes can be made there as well – it is just easier to change the multiplier setting on the fly compared to scrolling around in an obtuse interface like ACPI’s ACU.
The fan curve is a setting that can control the speed of your computer’s fans. If you’re looking for optimal performance and noise levels, tailor your system with just the right amount of airflow – whether it be in terms of cooling or silence. Don’t forget to set this up when overclocking .
