# 1 Video Card Fan Goes Nuts
11-21-2012, 12:58 AM
Any time I do space missions, (Empire Defense comes to mind) my video card's fans start spinning so fast I think my whole computer is about to explode. The speed of the fans seem dependant on where the camera is facing in space, but I can't pin down what exactly is causing the problem. I've tried turning down every setting I can and it changes nothing.

I have a Radeon HD 4890 with ATI CCC 12.6 drivers (as recommended by the official ATI website).

Any clues as to why this is happening, and what I can do to fix it? I've stopped playing because I feel like the game is going to damage my computer.
