Hi!
 
Currently I'm using the:
- 3080 FTW3 ULTRA
- Precision X1 (V1.1.0.11) software & updated to the latest firmware update.
 
I'm running into a weird RPM issue on the fans and it's driving me nuts.
Every time the GPU starts heavy load for example when I start a game, alt-tab back into a game or start a render the RPM of the fans starts to spike.
I have set custom fan curves in X1, tried OC mode & non-oc mode, different software (MSI Afterburner, FanControl) but nothing worked.
 
In the image below you can see the fans running IDLE (all good), load spike (Fans spike up to 3K+ rpm while at 60% speed?), load continues (everything is good 57% speed but normal RPM).
 

 
Not sure what to do next? RMA? Watercooling :>?

    Are you using driver 457.09?
    Downgrade driver may be normal.

    Yes, currently on the 457.09 GeForce driver.
    Is there a specific driver version I try/use?

    Use 456.71




    Still the same result .
     
    Even when not using a fan-curve and setting the speed manually to (51 in this case) it ramps up like a jet engine at the start of load.
     
    I can't imagine this is normal behavior? As I've never had this happen on any of my GPU's before.

    I have the same issue with my FTW3 3090.
    Those fans ramping up without reason is getting really annoying.
    Also the fan speeds that my card reports when the fans ramp up are pretty funny:

    Yeah, I really hope this can be fixed with a driver or firmware update. 
    Damn those fan speeds are crazy haha.

    What kind of case do you have? How is the cooling in the case(# of fans, what type of fans, enough space for the GPU to "breathe", etc) ?

    The cooling is fine. The card operates at 69-73C under load. There's definitely something wrong though. some HWMs show 50k RPM during the spikes.
     
    Edit: I know CAM sucks but I've been trying different ones to see if they tell me something different.
