2080 Fans spinnning loud, with undervolting in Afterburner

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I bought my RTX 2080 about 2 years ago, it has worked fine up until a year or so ago. The when playing games it starts to run really loud when the temperatures hit 79-80 degrees on the GPU. I've been using MIS Afternburner so I can see that and monitor it. I learned about under volting the card a few months ago and that worked pretty well - still got warm and performed decently but no noise. Now I have reset my PC, fresh, just because I like to do that every now and then. The noise has started again. I've lowered the frequency in the Voltage/Frequency curve editor some more, like when undervolting, but it's still noisey. Not sure I want to keep lowering it to the point where I lose a lot of performance.


Anyone got any advice? Can I try finding a water cooled block to put on the GPU? Re-apply thermal paste. I have an AIO CPU watercooler, two Noctua fans pulling in the front and one blowing out the back. My Pc is on shelves above me, is it because the hot air in my room is rising and heating the PC up?

This is the voltage curve I have going on in MSI Afterburner. I know it's all situational and dependant on card and other hardware but anyone got any pointers on making it different?

What temps did you have before? Have you tried cleaning the card? Could be dust clogging up the heatsink.

Is it just higher rpms or do the fans make a grinding noise?

It's really clean, I clean it quite often, and use a blower to blow the dust out of the fins etc. I had similar temps before, when it was quieter, between 75-80 degrees when gaming. And yeah, it sounds like the fans getting faster. There isn't any grinding noise
