GPU fan turning on and off???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently purchased a PNY GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming Blower 11GB Graphics Card GMX108TN3IBGT1KTPBAFB. This was installed yesterday. The GPU is turning on and off while playing Hellblade. Like it's maxing out fan speed for about 4 seconds, then back down again. Is this normal, or a sign the GPU is bad? From reading articles online, it might be an options to reduce noise, but it is a bit annoying since I always notice it when it kicks up. If the GPU or fan isn't bad, is there a way to make the fan run more consistantly?

Try installing something like MSI afterburner and set a custom fan curve. If the fan still does the ramping up and down, its probably a broken fan...

there are GPU that has a on and off feature for example as the one enclosed if you look closely its has FAN STOP on it, the fan will only turn on when the heat has reach a certain heat such product that has this feature are Gigabyte or AORUS that feature is available to reduce the power consumption, if you dont like fan to stop you can use MSI Afterburner and the set the fan to 50 or so

Does not sound like that is the issue here. He reported that under load the fan keeps ramping up and down, that should not be the working of that fan stop feature. the fan usually only stops if the card reaches below 50 °C and usually with no fans spinning 50°C will be reach under less than 50% load. So I think that is not the issue
