    Anyways, yeah, just figured I'd let you know that GW2 does support eyefinity in case that was something you were wondering about. But if you just didn't think it would run WELL in eyefinity, that's understandable to. xD
    Due to working I can't double check that these videos are what they say they are, but...

    Probably your GPU fan kicking it into high gear.

    uhm is the GPU fan the little black one sitting on the wall inside my computer?, or is it those two below(on it) my graphic card, and how can i fix this problem?

    Maybe turn down your volume :P ? Sounds like it's your processor and/or video card fans. I've heard reports of video cards whose fans make a lot of noise when they're working hard, specifically iin the early releases of the 6900s series. Try disabling all your other fans (if you know how to open your case and do so) aside from your processor and video card fans (which you can't really disable nowadays anyway) and determine if the noise is coming from them.

    Anyone know if i can run at low with decent FPS?

    The GPU (graphics processor unit) fan is mounted on your graphics card.

    allright thanks will do that, but im sure its the graphic card fans or the proccesor, anyways is there a way to reduce the speed of the fan? of proccesor and the graphic card not my regular ones?.

    + i wanna try to put my finger in the fan and see if it its that one can the fan break or something?

    The only time my GPU gets loud is when I turn off vsync in games with cutscenes with no FPS cap and my FPS jumps to like 8,000.
    .. I've started using vsync in those games, I don't like the sound.

    You might not break it if you don't hold it for more than 1-2 seconds, but there's a lot less brutal and invasive ways to do this hahahaa. What type of graphics card do you have, Nvidia or ATI?

    Here's a guide for Nvidia: http://www.guru3d.com/article/rivatu...erclock-guide/

    Catalyst Control Center™ Fan speed control

    This release of the ATI software driver version 8.54 introduces the ability for users to control the speed of the GPU fan when running in accelerated graphics.

    ----------------------------------

    Try this topic: http://www.tech-forums.net/pc/f10/ho...centre-244940/

    I don't have an ATI card so I dunno how the ATI Control Center looks nowadays, it's gone through a lot of changes over the years.

    Yeah seems like they have changed it and after a while i was able to find AMD overdrive tab but it dosnt show about fans maybe they have removed that feature , it only says ON / OFF to overclock/overdrive the graphic card.. baah ill do some research if i can

    wow hold on i went a bit further on Graphiccard overdrive and it says the fans on the graphic cards are on 22% ... wtf? and now i turned them up to 100% and they started making alot of noise.. well i guess its best if i keep em at lowesta and when im gaming around 70%?

    Today's graphics cards are made to function efficiently, so that if you're writing a Word document the fan won't run as fast as fast as if you were playing BF3. That's why it's only spinning at 22% while you're browsing the forums.

    Limiting the speed at 70% is a good idea if you want to reduce noise, but it's not so good for your card's cooling. If you're gonna do it, reduce to Low or disable options like Shadows and Bloom from your game options, or your card may suffer from overheat issues and a) you will have graphic stuttering in your games b) you will kill your card faster.

    If you know someone who is knowledgeable in these things, you can also attempt to replace the heat sink and fan on your graphics card. Replacing a 6900 series is out of the question just for a fan issue. Or you can attempt the replacement yourself, there are plenty of tutorials online on how to replace heat sinks on graphics cards.

    If you know a specialized computer shop, you can also ask them if they'll do the installation for you, assuming the labor fees + the new fan cost don't go too high.

    I'm confident I'll be able to run the game fine, but a few friends have graphics such as intel 3000. Since this is basically the lowest you can go to run the game, will they even be able to play? Their concern isn't over higher settings, just lowest possible settings and bearable fps.
