first of all never been into mining so i tested the card straight away it was performing as it should till i realised after maxing the settings on pubg card started going really loud than i touched the backplate it was so hot and i was told i need to flash to bios or something couldnt find anything related to this specific model and i defaulted the setting in auros engine and started getting like 10 fps in ultra when i was getting 65 stable before changing the settings is there anyway i can reset this card back to factory settings bios or whatever it is and how do i proceed ?

 Does it sound like this (It may not vary as much)? If so, it's most likely coil whine.

It's possible one (or both) fan bearings are dead and might need new fans. That would explain the noise, heat and loss of performance.

Have you overclocked the card? Maybe the "flashed bios or something" was a method to increase fan speeds or overclock it. Try downloading msi afterburner, see if any of the sliders are already in use (there should be a number indicating the overclock), or check if you can decrease the gpu core and memory clock and slowly decrease fan speed. 

Used to be everywhere in LTT forums, had a break which lasted apparently 1 year LOL. 

Gonna get up againnnn.

Wake me up if I sleep again like Oppy.

The fans spinning doesn't mean the fan bearings aren't finished.

 

That's usually what breaks first on a card used for mining because the fan curve would've been modified so that the fans are spinning faster, or are at 100% all the time.

 

With the card is under load, hold the fans with your hand to stop them, you'll be able to hear if that's the issue.

idk if its late but i have the gigabyte mining rx 580 and I noticed it was pretty loud and when i took it out and looked at it I noticed one of the fans was hitting this green sticker when it spinned, maybe you're having the same problem? I just pushed the sticker in with a screwdriver.
