RX 5700

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I bought the RX 5700 yesterday and tried some benchmarking and even some gaming. One thing that really bugged me was the super loud fan noise under gaming load (it almost sounded like a vacuum cleaner). Also when i tried lowering the fan via Afterburner it slowed down to my given percentage over the course of 1 min...not instantly as you would expect. Anyone else having the same problems or is it just me?

i don't know why you're expecting a blower-style card to be quiet. They're inherently noisy things, especially given it's having to take away a lot of very focused heat from that small process node navi uses.


The slow ramp-down is called fan-speed hysteresis and is designed to make transisions between fan speeds smooth, so the fan doesn't instantly ramp between 80% to 85% to 75% to 83% and so on, which would make for an absolutely infuriating experience.

Well, might not want to void the warranty in case I am going to return it and replace it :/
