My FTW3 still requires XOC for the fans to function correctly. If XOC isn't running the default bios fan curve is basically useless and the third fan wont even spin without XOC. Can Afterburner control all three fans yet?

    If your after performance, you should be running the Slave BIOS anyways

    I'm after my GPU not throttling because the fans don't work without XOC running.

    Evga really needs to release a bios with fans set to like 60% for these miners. Would think it would be in there best interest since it would help keep the rma's down from them burning up.

    If you set the fans manually inside xoc the fans will continue to run after exiting xoc.

    That's good to know for people that want to maybe use msi afterburner.. or would afterburner's fan profile take over?

    As long as you don't have a fan profile setup it won't takeover.

    See I've heard this, but it isn't true in my experience. If XOC crashes (which it is prone to do) I'll start to throttle. Maybe if I boot windows with XOC then manually close it every time? Would that do it? Seems to me that maybe the product should get an update to make it function well instead of expecting such ridiculous loopholes though. I don't mean to come off as an ass or anything it's just frustrating as hell that EVGA can't seem to make such an obvious issue a priority to fix. Really makes me think twice about considering EVGA when the 1180ti releases. I ended up with like 3 bios updates on my 980 from MSI fixing things and they were prompt to respond and work on fixes when users reported them, but EVGA doesn't seem to actually care about these things which makes me think it's just desire to push XOC instead of improve the product. XOC is a buggy mess and the idea that I even need it installed to have proper functionality on my card is ridiculous. I can already promise that I wont touch EVGA next gen if they require XOC still. By your own admission XOC is required to be run just to get the fans working.

    Don't see how xoc can crash after setting the fans manually and exiting xoc.

    I've never had pxoc crash before? Maybe some old crap left over after the uninstall and reinstall of a newer version?
