RTX 2080 air cooling is like a turbine.

Sargon
 Share

Only when I started testing RTX games, did I hear the full power of my RTX 2080 fans.

I am almost certain it's the fans of the RTX GPU but I could be wrong.

Is it suppose to be so loud?

It does monotone burst with the fans.

Does loud noise for 1 or 2 seconds, then no noise for 1 or 2 seconds.

So it's hard to hear what Lara is saying when playing like that.

 

Is this normal?

Is there a way to make things cooler? Like even turning on the AC could help?

The 2080 is a loud card but you can set a fan curve on msi after burner

stock coolers aren't enough to tame these gpus you really need a big 3 slot 3 gpu fan config to get them under control on air. 240mm of rad space will also do it

I don't understand.

Can I replace the fans on the GPU?

Where do I put the radiator? Or if I can replace it?

you'd need a with a different cooler not just fans

a radiator would mean water cooling it or using an AIO

Try setting a custom fan curve with Afterburner or E-Leet, smoothing it out will at least make it less noticeable. 

The stock fans are typically why you avoid Founders cards and go for twin/triple fan cooler designers. Founders cards are more something you get if you're doing a custom water loop. 

 

If you want to water cool the card there are options like

EVGA Hybrid cooler: https://www.evga.com/products/productlist.aspx?type=18&family=Cooling&chipset=GPU+HYBRID+Cooler

 

There are some aftermarket heatsink/aircoolers as well

I think I have 3 fans, though the card is upside down it's hard to see.

I have a Gigabyte card.

Yes, I have Windforce 8G, it has 3 fans.
