I bought a pair of MSI 8600GTS cards assuming that they'd be noisy by default, but also assuming that I'd be able to slow down the fans to get a reasonable noise level when not playing games (which is most of the time, since I don't do much gaming).
Unfortunately, neither nTune nor RivaTuner is able to adjust the fan speeds on my cards. nTune offers a slider which has no effect, RivaTuner doesn't even offer the usual fan control tab.
I'm ready to buy a drive-bay fan controller, but before I do, I figure I should ask: are these cards ever likely to have software-adjustable fan speed? I mean, are they non-adjustable today because the hardware is incapable of running the fans at lower speed, or because the software just isn't yet
compatible with these cards?
If nTune's fan controller will work in a future release, then I'll just wait... but if not, I might as well buy a fan controller this weekend.
This is the make&model, by the way:

Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this!
