1660 Super fan speeds too high

Hello there,

 

I recently built a new PC with a GTX 1660 Super. Ran completely without a hitch for a few weeks, then suddenly yesterday whenever booting a game up the card fan straightaway goes to 100% and stays there (even after exiting the game). GPU temps also seemed to increase and stay high (60/70), although I didn't notice if they came down after exiting game (see below).

 

Only things that have changed (all yesterday) are that I installed an SSD and updated my BIOS to allow my RAM to run at 3200 (I'm on a Ryzen 3600). There were also a couple of power cuts along my street whilst the power was on (which are very unusual).

 

I tried setting my RAM speed back to the BIOS default (2133), unplugging the SSD and tidying my cables around, all to no effect.

 

I figured it was maybe something to do with the power cuts. As a last try, I then unseated and re-seated the graphics card and for some reason it now seems to be working normally again - GFX temps are what I'd expect and the fan increases and decreases according to load (rather than staying at 100% as soon as a game is booted up).

 

Bit of a rambling post, but I guess I'm just seeing if anyone has any idea what could have happened and why just re-seating the card seems to have fixed it?

 

Thanks in advance :)

I don't mean to hijack your post but I have the same GPU and I run a Ryzen 3600 also. Do you overclock your GPU? I just started using MSI Afterburner. If you use Afterburner could you share your settings?

 

I'm sorry I don't have any insight into your issue.

No problem, however afraid I'm not able to help you either(!) - I don't overclock, sorry

Hello there and thanks for the response!

 

I did not and I should have mentioned that I did update the BIOS (and AMD chipset drivers) as part of my trouble shooting. This didn't seem to have any effect (although obviously good that I now have up to date firmware, turns out I hadn't even installed chipset drivers before, although not sure what impact that would have had).

 

As I said it's working fine now, I'm just curious about what went wrong and why reseating fixed it. Maybe I knocked something when installing the SSD!

So what fixed was probably the firmware for the GPU really lol 

And anytime :D
