Most of the MSI graphics cards have Zero Frozr feature, which eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. If the temperature drops below 60 degrees, the fans will be completely silent. Zero FROZR has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards.

The feature is getting controlled under OS environment. When starting up the PC, the fans will spin when the graphics card is being detected, the two fans should start spinning at the same time.

Please enter MSI official website to check if your graphics card is supported by Zero Frozr feature. If you would like to disable Zero Frozr feature to have the fans spinning at all times, please check on how to disable Zero Frozr. If the fans still not rotating after the attempts above, please refer to hardware troubleshooting methods.
