Inno3D 1080 x2 obscenely loud?

Hey guys, new member here :)

So I just bought this brand new graphics card, the Inno3D gtx 1080 x2 and boy is it loud. Much louder than my Asus turbo blower style 1060, like around twice as loud under load.
Which makes me wonder if its just a cheap and nasty cooler (it was $150 cheaper than any other 1080 I could get new), or whether I got a special one that is extra loud!

Anybody else got this card and have noise complaints?

Thanks in advance x

So it is used ? or did i get that wrong?

have you checked the fan speeds with MSI Afterburner? Maybe they are running at 100% under load.

Didcha adjust the fan speed, like via MSI Afterburner? I just got a stock VEGA 64 and it pretty quiet, even under load....I realized that though it was pretty quiety, fan speed rev up to about 50% under load, the GPU temp reading I'd gotten was 85C. I didn't like that, so I adjusted fan speed higher, it does get loud under load, but temp stays around 60C (haven't really stress tested it t yet though. The thing is, how's your temp? Is it good under load?

Is the temperature any good then?

 

You're not the first to complain about this heatsink and fan combo being loud (heck, even the 1070 with this cooler doesnt shut up under load either). I guess you get what you paid for at this point.

 

Most people who tried to solve their problem undervolted their cards and made it bearable, some go as far as taking the card apart to replace the thermal paste which makes it a lot better. Of course still no good in a noise perspective for overclocking, but at stock it's good after some tweaks and mods.

Nah its brand new, and I did check with afterburner.
So its was running at 83 degrees after an extended session, and the fans were only sitting at %68, but I wouldn't have guessed that low given the noise!

Yeah so as I just replied to SoreRatio, %68 fan speed and sitting at 83 degrees. Which is the limit which isn't heaps bad but not ideal.
I might try replacing the thermal grease and undervolting a little and see if the framerate is okay. Thanks for the tip!

Sounds like undervolting is the way to go, which is pretty dissapointing for this new product haha. Or, I could go with the same approach from this video:
