Yea it's pretty normal, my wife has one and her rig and I would say it's loud as well.

Which one? RX580? 5700XT?

I undervolt my 5700XT, 1.025v 1950MHz. Custom fan profile in MSI Afterburner, only requires 35% fan speed to keep the card running at 63C. It runs very quiet.

can i do custom fan curve on radeon software?

5700xt nitro is the best interms of noise and temp

noise when 3 fans at idle?

remove each one by one and test again

saplhire has best fan service to replace a faulty fan

I had a 5500xt nitro+ it was neither loud nor hot nor powerful lol...

Yes, you can.

Yes you can, beating a Demon's Souls boss is easier however. :3

 

Spoiler

honestly I liked a lot of what they're going for with their UI (amd) even overclocking was surprisingly easy, but the dodgy fan control was not one of those things I liked lol...

The noise is dead silent at idle but is audible without headphones at like 509 RPM 1000 rpm for some reason is very audible

That's weird, what case do you have?

 

I basically didn't hear my 5500xt at all (nearly) and rpms were about the same

Have you downloaded the sapphire software that allows you to switch between the primary bios and secondary bios? The secondary bios is quieter so you might want to try that.

also i switched out the fans in that case for noctua fans if loud case fans is what your worried about

I have a vega 64 nitro+ currently and have never noticed any noise coming from it. It's pretty silent by my standards

nah, I didn't even think of that. I just asked because I noticed some cases are just kinda flimsy and made of thin materials.

 

like I had a nzxt case (for a week only) and I was rather surprised how "loud" it was, I could hear my CPU fans while idling, GPU seemed really noisy while gaming etc...

 

now my case's materials (metal obviously) are about twice as thick, of course noise cancelation will be much better, and less vibrations also... it's a much much more silent and ironically cooler experience than a "gamer" case like the nzxt (h510 was it)

 

So yeah, if you're annoyed by noises from your PC that's where I'd start... get a really sturdy, silent PC case (and that likely means not one with big openings at the front either, as that means more noise yet again...)

My case materials are metal aswell, I dont really have vibrations for the most part its just the fan, do you think my fans are faulty? I only just recently built this pc anyway.

I'm just saying most .. pc cases... have really thin materials to save costs or whatever... at least most low-mediun cost ones. 

it's basic physics, the thicker the material the less noise can go through. I can't possibly know how thick the materials of your case are , or if your fans are defective, I'm just suggesting to look for a "possibly" better case as in my experience it makes a *huge* difference.

 

btw I only bought my case (inwin) because I liked the looks, I couldn't really know that it's a pretty silent and sturdy case at all, but in hindsight it really is, and it wasn't that expensive either .

My way to keep the PC quiet is always run as many fans as possible, but at very slow speed. Especially I prefer SFF case now. There is no "sound optimised" SFF case.

well if my PC is idle I don't hear it at all... it's right next to my bed too lol.

it's not 100% silent, no, but it's silent enough that it's honestly pretty much unnoticeable if you're like 1-2 m away...

 

I do have lots of fans in it actually, but 2 of them are *off* when idle, and the others tbh run at like 1000rpm (bequiet and noctua) I could lower them but I don't need to, PC is nearly inaudible already anyway, and since exhaust fan is off it's probably better for temps also (around 35-40C idle for*all* components currently)

 

 

but regardless, what you said makes sense and everyone has a different perception of noise anyway. :)

You could just add a layer of bitumen sound dampening material to the sides of the case... That's what the Antec P5 uses. It works well enough that unless your ear is against the side of the case, you can only hear sound coming through the vents.

But my PC is quiet enough. I mean case manufacturers make those sound optimised cases with solid front panel. Although it helps reducing noise, but hinders cooling performance at the same time. Now the new trend is open front mesh panel to aid cooling.

 

I prefer the solution of better ventilation and overkill cooling. That way, you can keep the fans at very slow speed while maintaining good temp.

I'm just giving extra ideas you may want for late on... You could also use a sound dampening filter structure. A cheap central AC air filter from a hardware store removed from its cardboard housing, and folded over once should produce a significant sound dampening with minimal airflow restriction. Can use it for both intake and exhaust.
