granturissimusAnother way to avoid this is to keep the fans at 35% minimum at all times.
chrisdglongWhen it does this can you see the fans twitch a bit? Corsair had this on the AX860i that I have. I think they might have fixed it in a firmware though, I haven't heard it in a long time. The fan, when turned completely off, would twitch slightly. I noticed because of the same reason you said, it sounded like a hard drive... Yet, I didn't have a hard drive! I did some research and Corsair at the time was saying that it was normal. The fact that it no longer does it, and it seems to have been fixed in a firmware update, tells me that it was probably never really "normal", just "acceptable".
gusforceyep, looks like evga fans cant handle fan speeds below 35%, i have an 1660 ti and it does the same. Dont worry.
AVA-GHi. I am having the same problem. I can hear the fans through my headset. In game the card is running well but while browsing (while i'm concentrating) it is a loud revving - fan spin on/off. My temp is also 36/37'C when the problem is triggered. I live in Australia. I'm disappointed EVGA, you have been recommended by several Australian reviewers. I have asked my PC shop for an exchange.
linktjtI contacted evga and they told me the noise is due to the motor in the fans and that its something the vbios cannot fix.
AVA-GEntry by brandonforrister shows a reply from EVGA stating a future driver update might fix the problem. EVGA Tech Support EVGATECH_JaesonW says the fan curve can be altered to correct the problem. They also say engineers will look into the problem.
nick_b24Came here looking a solution to the same problem I have on my RTX 2060 KO ULTRA GAMING. I can't believe no news from EVGA regarding this issue since February. This is totally unacceptable for a card in this price range.

nick_b24The problem is very clear, the card cannot handle fan speeds below ~37%. Therefore a new BIOS should be made available to those who want it that will do the following: Fans stay off until a certain temperature threshold is met, then they turn on to 40%. Fans can increase speed from 40% but never go lower unless it's 0%. Hysteresis should also be enabled so the fans are not going on an off when the temperatures are near the set point. I don't need the temperature set point to be configurable either, than can be factory set.
sixstringmonkCan someone post a screen shot of their working fan profile in Precision X1 please? I want to make sure I'm understanding how the curve editor works.
