So I just built a new PC, kept my case / fan setup, but replaced MB, CPU, GPU. On my old EVGA GTX 1070 FTW card the fans basically never turned on, unless it was doing something really intensive (I had replaced the thermal paste on that card). On my new RTX 2080 XC Ultra "Gaming" the fans are constantly on / off / on / off as I'm using the PC (normal usage, non-gaming). Its as the card is right at the turn-on temp for the fans and as soon as they turn on they turn right back off.
It appears that setting custom fan curves in X1 program only work as long as that program is running? Is this correct? If that is correct that solution won't work for me. I'm in Linux most of the time. The only solution I've found is to enable fan control in the Nvidia driver and have the fans run all the time. This actually appears to be what needs to happen in Windows too as well honestly otherwise the card idles really "hot", or finds this spots where it just bounces back and forth between turning the fans on and off.
Is it just me? I didn't see a firmware update or anything? Did I overlook something?
