MSI gtx 1060 gaming x fan problem.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently bought a msi gtx 1060 6g gaming x graphics card. While gaming only one ,of the 2 fans, is spinning at a high speed so after some time it gets loud. I don't know if it's a faulty graphics card or it just needs some specific regulation. 
Thanks!

Does the other fan spin as well? EVGA cards can spin their fans at different speeds to suit the need of cooling. Not sure if MSI cards do the same?


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a mobile workstation/gaming laptop double Hate the thermal paste and memory timings

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Only one fan is spinning . The other doesn't spin at all. I just did some digging and found out that many people have this issue. There are some solutionts but i haven't tried anything yet because it doen't seem like anyone is completly sure about them.

Run Unigine Valley benchmark for 5 minutes~

 

Run MSI Afterburner.

 

What is the GPU Temperature after 5 Minutes?

What is the Fan Speed? Not only %, but also rpm?

 

 

This sounds like a faulty GPU. The Fans of this model are either off, or they spin both. Anything else is faulty.

The Cooler is btw so good, you should not hear it at all. even under Load, the Fans should spin at only 1000-1100 rpm~, maybe 1200, depending on case temperatures.

 

RMA the card. ^^

I saw online that the msi gaming app might causing the problem so i uninstalled it , reseted my pc and ran the benchmark. This time both fans started spinning after 60 C and after five minutes benchmarking the temperature didn't got over 65 C. I think that actually the app caused the problem.

Your max temperature sounds very realistic there ^^

 

So yea, probably the Gaming App is buggy~ (i had it too for a short time, didnt saw such a problem tho).

But i uninstalled it, because it interfered with MSI Afterburner ^^
