i have googled, and looked at all the posts, and no one seems to be able to give a good way of sorting this out.

i have installed my new 6870 wich works perfectly, except for the bl00dy fan, whihc is running at 100% all the time.

all i did was take ou tmy old GT240, and stick this new one in, as soon as it gets past the apple boot screen, boom up to 100% speed!!

annoying, some guy managed to sort it by sticking a diferent GPU cooler on it, but there must be a way of sorting this out surely?

xfx hd 6870

Right

Just bought an xfx pro 750 psu.
It has more than enough power to ensure the 6870 has enough juice.
I'll do a clean lion install tonight, and report back if this solve the issue

It looks like my CIT psu is not actually powerful enough and this may be causing the fan / heat issues.

I'll let you know, then update wiki

Doing a clean install won't make any difference at all. I've done about 3 clean install of LION (not because of the fan) and it hasn't fixed it. Surely there must be a way to control the gpu fan speed. Let me know if you find a fix or anything.

I found a fix, by way of a new cooler fan from accelero, it's the twin turbo pro!!

amazing cooling and it's at least 300% quieter. Get one. :D
