As per the title suggests, I've just got my 2080 and I noticed a low-pitch buzzing sound. It sounds different to the tradition "high pitch coil whine" sound so i'm not sure what the problem may be. I have checked for any wires getting caught up in the fans just in case it was that and I am certain the sound comes from the GPU and not another component (i.e. PSU). It only happens when the GPU is under load. I have tried with stock clocks/MEM, a mild overclock on stock/MEM, stock (100%) power limit/voltage, max (130%) power limit/voltage and even slightly under-clocked (including lower power limit) which all seem to present this same sound.
 
I have done various things so far to mitigate the issue:
re-seat the card
re-connect all the cables
2 separate 8-pin PCI cables from the PSU
 
I have an 8700k with an all-core OC of 4.7ghz @ 1.25v, 16GB DDR4 RAM on an Asus Z370F.
My PSU is a 650w G3 from EVGA which has just turned 1 years old. I previously ran an EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 and never had any coil whine/buzzing noises.
Other than this, my card seems okay. It doesn't overclock the best in PX1 (+200 MEM / +90 CORE) but it runs super cool and I haven't got the issue regarding the top/right MEM banks being much hotter than the left MEM bank.
 
I have uploaded a video to youtube which shows the sound kick in a few seconds in once I tab back into the game (clock speed/power usage increases) - unfortunately I can't link it here as this is my first post (it's the only video on my channel so you can probably find it - tomsinclair9)
 
Is my card defective? Would getting a larger PSU (750w) give me more head room for my system? I really hope I don't have to RMA the card, but if it's best advised, I will have to. Thanks in advance!

    Well I'm not sure how to solve your problem but I can say with your components and a overclock on cpu and gpu. you are probably nearing the top end of that 650w psu... they have a deal I believe right now still for 1600w at just 150 usd. You cant really beat it. Sorry I cant help you with your noise issue. But I would definitely get a 850 or higher psu. As obviously yes it will give more head room!. I got the 1600w so I basically dont have to worry about a psu for well... many years.

    Good luck

    mine buzzes too, about the same amount as both my 1080ti ftw3 did. i think any huge die gpu will have some buzz. only know of one persons strix 1080ti that didnt buzz under load. think he got a super lucky gold chip tho.

    Thanks the replies so far. I’m now starting to think I have an issue which I can’t work out if it’s the GPU or the PSU. I’m struggling to complete 3DMark runs and game at stock clock speeds.

    I’ve managed to get them to pass with an underclock of -100 MEM and -50 CORE with the 650w PSU. I have an 850w PSU coming tomorrow which I can switch in to see if the problem is power related.

    With my power limit at 130% I’ve never seen it use more than 110%. Could that be an indication that there just isn’t the power there to hit the max 130%?

    yeah try a psu swap to something with 750-850 watts first
    with furmark you should hit the 130% limit

    I’ll try that tomorrow with the new 850w I’ve got coming.

    I’m still a bit worried that I’m unable to complete the benchmark/game with the stock clocks.

    So after dealing with RED LEDS and middle fan going crazy i also been dealing with the buzzing souns and this whole time i thought it was coming from my speakers but it was defintely from the GPU.
    It isnt a PSU issue as not only did i swap between a 800w and 1000w Corsair but i also purchased the 1600w t2 evga PSU and still getting the same problems. I just recieved my RMA and it also does the same buzzing sound im awaiting 42 hours to confirm if i am still dealing with the same red led and middle fan issue. I gone through all the bios flashes as instructed and PX1 verisions and it is not helping. So currently dealing with two $1400 GPUs that seem to be having similiar issues.

    Sounds very similar to the “buzzing” I am hearing! Doesn’t give me confidence about the PSU change not making a difference but I will be trying anyway. 650w seems quite on the edge for what’s in my system so giving it more headroom with an 850w can’t do any harm.

    I’ll see if it makes a difference for me and if not then I guess I’ll have to go down the RMA route.

    with furmark you should hit the 130% limit




    I wouldn't recommend furmark.  It's basically Prime95 on steroids for the GPU and has been known to destroy cards.  3Dmark is where it's at and many others.

    I dont see the point on OC or stress testing when have the problem occur initially should be enough to indicate further problems down the road.

    I'm getting this exact same thing when I have a game running with my 2080 ti FTW3. I just figured this was normal coil whine. Is this not normal coil whine? All my video cards in the past have never had coil whine so I'm not sure what to expect.

    Buzz is normal. coil whine is usually high pitched and stays high pitched. buzz is inductor noise, and the more beefy the gpu the louder the buzz is. unless you get super lucky with some golden sample with a perfect vrm.

    So I received my 850w PSU and as I had kind of anticipated it didn’t really make much of a difference - maybe the buzz was slightly quieter (or in just used to hearing it).

    However, since posting this on the forum my card is getting worse and worse by the day. It won’t play any games or run any benchmarks at stock clock speeds anymore and I’m seeing artifacts all over the places followed by crash after crash.

    I have contacted support to get an RMA sorted. Thanks for all the replies!

    I've also had my 2080 FTW get worse and worse by the day. I've got an RMA coming in soon so hopefully the new one won't have a problem. I suspect the issue could be memory related as I've had to underclock my memory by -300 under stock to get rid of any artifacts.

    It's hard to tell but it honestly sounds like my buzz is getting worse by the day too. My PC is in another room from where the monitor is, so I don't hear it while gaming, but it still concerns me. I spoke with EVGA support and they let me know that the buzzing isn't any indication of a bad or dying card, but still it leaves me with an uneasy feeling.
     
    The fact that you had to underclock the memory by -300 is reason enough to RMA that card.

    Pretty much what I saw. -200 would make the artifacts go away and then I just kept having to lower it to keep it stable. RMA accepted and my card will be on its way back tomorrow. I hope the replacement is all okay!

    hey guys. Im going to buy the rtx 2080 ftw3. This buzzing noise occurs on all the cards?
    I should decide between the evga or the palit i had a 1080 ftw2 in the past so i would buy an evga. My old 1080 didn't have coil whine or buzzing and obv i don't want that on a 800€ card.

    Not all cards will have coil whine.

    You wont find a many theads about the 2080 ftw 3 so I would assume most people that own them are not having issues.

    I downloaded 0.3.9 X1 today. Previously was using 0.3.7.
     
    0.3.9 had a firmware update and I now have a noise when the card is under load, similar to what's been described and linked above.

    I have the same problem but its totally the opposite, its a super high frequency harmonic like sound that changes pitch slightly with load depending on the type of work the GPU is doing.  Its not always, it comes and goes but when it  does for an application always is the same.  and some its downright loud. like fire alarm HV strobe capacitor recharging loud...  if I can get a vid of it I'll post it up.  since its not 24/7 its manageable but ugh when its screaming...

    What do you mean?  You could hit your power maximum with a 750w or 850w PSU.  As long as you have an efficient PSU for your PC's requirements, you should have no problem pushing the GPU.

    I have the same problem but its totally the opposite, its a super high frequency harmonic like sound that changes pitch slightly with load depending on the type of work the GPU is doing.  Its not always, it comes and goes but when it  does for an application always is the same.  and some its downright loud. like fire alarm HV strobe capacitor recharging loud...  if I can get a vid of it I'll post it up.  since its not 24/7 its manageable but ugh when its screaming...


     
    This is a perfect description of the noise I hear.  I have a EVGA 2080 RTX ULTRA. When its under load, it produces a high-pitched whine. The pitch of the whine varies with whats going on in my game. For example, if things are mostly static, the whine is constant. If something flashes or moves in my game, the pitch changes to match the activity I see on the screen.
     
    With headphones, I do not hear it, but the noise is troubling. 
     
    I am using a 165hz monitor, my driver version is 419.35, 8700K, 16gb RAM, 850watt PSU. All stock speeds.

    So after dealing with RED LEDS and middle fan going crazy i also been dealing with the buzzing souns and this whole time i thought it was coming from my speakers but it was defintely from the GPU.
    It isnt a PSU issue as not only did i swap between a 800w and 1000w Corsair but i also purchased the 1600w t2 evga PSU and still getting the same problems. I just recieved my RMA and it also does the same buzzing sound im awaiting 42 hours to confirm if i am still dealing with the same red led and middle fan issue. I gone through all the bios flashes as instructed and PX1 verisions and it is not helping. So currently dealing with two $1400 GPUs that seem to be having similiar issues.
     

     




    FWIW I've had six 2080Ti GPU's from MSI, EVGA & Gigabyte; all six of them made that buzzing noise from the VRM mosfets while under load. At first I thought it was coil-whine but it's not. My Gigabyte Waterforce was the least offensive, probably because of the waterblock/shroud damping the noise. YMMV, but in my opinion this is just how all 2080Ti's behave. Sucks but it is what it is... hopefully GPU prices come back down to normal, sane levels because then it becomes easier to live with these kinds of flaws.

    My EVGA 2080 Black buzzes but only during boot and right after booting into Windows 10, then after about a minute, it stops and doesn't do it again during the entire time the computer is on, even during gaming or the like. It's NOT coil whine, but a very low pitched humming sound. It's really weird. I'm running a pure sine UPS and EVGA SuperNOVA 850w G2 PSU with PLENTY of power to spare. My UPS says I'm only pulling ~440w max under full load running benchmarks or in games, and while loading into Windows, it's pulling even less than that at around 200w and settles at around 160w while idle. That's with i7 8700k, 32GB DDR4 3600, Samsung 970 Pro 512GB, Samsung 960 EVO 1TB, 3 x 140MM fans, 1 x 120mm fan, and two 6TB WD Black HDD's. Plus all the damn RGB literally everywhere, so it's no where even close to maxing my PSU. UPS says output is 19% of what it can handle at idle and it's a 1350AVR, so that's 815w. 19% of 815w is about 155w. And this GPU uses less power than my previous one, which was an R9 390X. Considering it only does it during boot/loading into Windows, it's got to be something with the GPU hardware warming up. Eh, it's just disconcerting.
