andross182You went from a 250w TDP dual fan card to a 320-450w 3080...did you really not know what you were getting in to?
KokinYou have the power to change the fan curve to silent or your own custom curve in Precision X1. You'd rather get an entirely new GPU instead of spending a few minutes in PX1? There is always the option to go with a waterblock :)
mercIEIt could be because the GDDR6X is way too hot. If the fans are abnormally high, but the core is at a reasonable temperature, it's because the memory modules are too hot and the card is trying desperately to cool them.
StubbiesFact of the matter is on an air cooled card if you want to keep it as cool as what you are reporting that is the price you will pay is in sound. If you want to lower the sound to a bearable level temps will increase and the card will have to tone it down a bit so you will lose some performance. The 30 series cards are power hungry and with boosting algorithms they want to hang out at 80 C so you gaming at 72 C is already good. The card isn't going to run so hot that it hurts itself if you lower the aggressiveness of the fan curve. It will simply drop clocks to keep the temps from getting out of control. These are basic laws of physics you are working against here. The only other option as given above is to WC the card.
TrekCZCan you provide what is RPM of your fans what you perceive as noisy. I am using normal bios and card is silent, probably more silent than case fans. Also, what is your ambient temperature, mine was recently 29C which is scorching hot here.

I was hoping the extra fan meant better cooling with less noise. For the most part it does well at the cooling, it's just loud and annoying af....much more than I expected I guess......its not like there is really a way to test drive these things first before buying them. I may just end up putting my pc in the refrigerator so it stays cool and I dont have to hear it.
Adam9553Well when the gpu hits 70C the fan is set to be at 90%.
Adam9553I'm pretty sure that was an issue mainly with the 3090 with half the memory overheating due to placement,and that it didn't affect any other 30xx,....I think I recall that gamer nexus guy doing a video on it.... but I could be wrong; I am by no means an expert on this subject....however, I would think more people would be reporting that issue on the founders edition vs one with better cooling fan setup. Just a haunch.
