apav11I recently purchased a 1080 Ti FTW3. Besides having some artficating at the lock screen due to my custom resolution (which my previous GPU didn't have with the same custom resolution) that I think I have fixed, it's been running great. However there are two things I have noticed about it that I just wanted to double check if they're normal or not. First, when I start my computer and immediately load up Precision XOC/X1, I notice my clock speeds bouncing around between idle 139/405Mhz and load 1569/5508Mhz clocks for a few minutes. Sometimes I have even seen it go to 1480/5508Mhz in between the other two as well. I'm not opening any other programs besides Precision and my startup programs (which are Nvidia Control Panel, Geforce Experience, Sound Blaster Control Panel, Samsung Magician, ESET Smart Security and Logitech Gaming Software). I'm not touching my keyboard or mouse during this time either. I was trying to find an explanation before making this thread and stumbled across this thread and post which is somewhat similar: https: // forums . evga . com/Gtx-1080ti-stuck-at-1569-clock-speed-when-idle-m2708556 . aspx#2708558 None of those causes are applicable to me except for GeForce Experience/Shadowplay being installed/enabled, but I tried disabling Shadowplay/uninstalling Geforce Experience and I still get the same clock speeds. So is this normal behavior, or if not what other causes do you think it could be? Second, I have a question regarding its noise. I purchased a FTW3 because I wanted as little noise as possible and for the most part it lives up to that. However when the fans reach 40% I start to hear a certain sound, and it gets louder if the fan speeds increase. It was hard to capture even though I think it's very noticeable in person, it's that high pitched noise you can hear besides the normal fan noise. Turning your volume up makes it easier to hear: https: // vocaroo . com/3NJXoDVPTsy I have my case on my desk right next to the monitor, and it is less noticeable the farther you are from the case, so maybe that is why. Is this normal as well? If it is, I can get used to it. Apologies for the spaces in the links, I have to in order to be able to link them at all. Thanks so much for the help!
