My EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC one fan revs up

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

While doing a long gaming session and I started to hear my PC get really loud and suddenly get to a normal sound again. Soon i started to notice more and more so I went to test my gpu to see if I can recreate the sound. You can see the one fan revs up like crazy and stops. But it doesnt tell me the one fan speeds up in % speed. Also I noticed it only happens when the temperature reaches 77 or higher and stops when it reaches 76. Other than that it has never happen. Also would it have a possibility to break my GPU? Any Ideas to stop this from happening?

 

Things I have tried:

  • Rebooting PC
  • Reseating GPU
  • Reinstalling drivers

Any help would be greatly appreciated

The EVGA fans are asynchronous, meaning the fan spinning up is connected in software to the heat sink on the CPU die rather than the VRMs. In order to fix this, you need to use Precision X1 because other softwares dont detect the other fans as fans (I have to do this using the slightly older XOC for both my 1070ti FTW2 [Project ITNOS] and 1080ti FTW3 [Main rig in Sig] which have 2 and 3 fans respectively.) Using that software, i can lock all fans to ramp up with GPU temperature rather than be individual to VRM temps. 

 

Misread the question. It could be a glitch in the softwares ability to properly read the temperatures, making the software think the card is spiking in heat, so it ramps up the fan to compensate but the realizes everything is okay so it lowers it back down. How often does this happen? It shouldn't break the card or damage it, but if it's happening a lot it would cause unnecessary wear and slightly shorten the lifespan of the card.

It only happens when the temperature reaches 77 or higher and stops when it reaches 76. So It's A software issue? I happens regardless if I use software or not. Sorry If I sound a little new. I'm not very experienced on this kinda of stuff

It's possible that your GPU fan curve is set to jump the fan speed after 76ºC. Can you check to see how the fan curve is set up and report back?

Here is my fan curve, doesn't appear to spike Imo.

Definitely doesnt have a dramatic spike like one would expect given the situation. How long have you owned the card?

 

You could try switching to X1 to see if the software behaves more normally. X1 funtions nearly identically to MSI afterburner, but takes advantage of the extra fetures built into EVGA cards. (Not always necessary though, I used Afterburner on my 970 FTW for years)

I've owned the card for about a year and a half. I'll try with X1 and report back.

Sadly, things haven't changed much fan curve is pretty much the same as afterburners

Possibly a fault with the card then, if it's definitely ramping up audibly but the speed % isnt reading no change and the RPM is.
