It does not hit any Cables, its just the noise when the fans start spinning. would not be that much of a problem if the fans would not spin up every second for about a half hour when watching movies and hitting that 55-56C Temp

same, got my ARMA yesterday and boy was this card worse.  Not only did it have the clicking noise it had horrendous coil whine, only got +44 in X1 while my other card did +90, temps were 10 degrees or so higher.  With this said the replacement card is going back instead and I am just going to live with my original card since temps maxed out in lows 70s and had very little to no coil whine.  I am just kind of pissed I spend $40 to 2nd day ARMA a card I will not be keeping

I can watch a 4k video and my 2080 doesn't even clock up from 300 MHz, stays under 40 C. You've got something weird with your video playback software or something else keeping your idle clocks high, it shouldn't be that hot playing video.

There are different variables at play as not everyone is in the same environment.  Could be case air flow and or higher ambient temps.

Sure but literally ever case of someone complaining about this here so far has turned out to have high idle clocks.

I just received my RMA too and my replacement card has the same fan startup noise as my former one. So, either it's normal and all cards are made this way or there's a lot a faulty cards on the market...

I can confirm the clicking noise when the card is turning the fans from off to on. This is when the card cooled down (less then 50°C?) and then heat up above 60°C. 
I got a good cooled case, so if I leave a game the gpu temperature will drop pretty fast under 50°C, like 45°C and keep there. Because of this I have no constant clicking.
 
Because of that, the clicking noise is irrelevant for me (most of the time I don't even hear it because of I wear headphones while gaming).
But I would like to know: Is this clicking noise normal and intended by design?

It does not hit any Cables, its just the noise when the fans start spinning. would not be that much of a problem if the fans would not spin up every second for about a half hour when watching movies and hitting that 55-56C Temp

I have the same clicking noise thing and I also checked the card - it is IMPOSSIBLE that the fans hit any cables. 
Fixed the high idle temp by replacing factory thermal paste (which wasn't entirely covering GPU die btw) with grizzly kryonaut paste (it is very easy to do, 4 screws off and one cable pin on the side). Now the idle ise 45-47 instead of 55 degrees and card stays at passive mode in idle.
When I pump up the game then of course I hear the click as fans start working but this isnät much of an issue to me anymore, however it was an isse where idle temp stayed at 55 degrees celcius and fan was constantly switching on/off thus generated this non-stop clicking sound.

Did any of you guys check if the fans were hitting a cable of any sort?  My RTX 2080 Ti XC has this issue when the fans initiate from zero there is a distinct clicking noise.  I called CS today and they said check for any cables under the fans.  I guess I'll try that today.  From the responses on here it seems like some feel this is just how the fans are while another person who did a RMA got a card without these issues.  

f
Some have claimed it's a cable but I just pulled my 2070 Black out of my case to look at it and the cables running underneath the fan blades are fastened pretty flush to the heat sink fins.

I bought this card over the Nvidia founder one because it was supposed to be semi passive. But with the clicking noise i had to make a custom fan speed curve, like other people suggested, to make the fans constantly running even at low temperature. That way they won't have to stop and start again randomly and it will avoid clicking sound.
 
But i shouldn't have to do that.I'm very disappointed with this product. My first card had this issue, and the RMA one too. It feels like a cheap card.
To all the people that have this noise issue, think about the resale value of your card the day you have to sell it. Some people won't care about the issue, but others will do...

Yes. Resell Value is crap and its annoying cause Afterburner is not adjusting the fancurve at start up and that card should work out of the box !

The still buggy Precision X1 seems to get the temps down on the 2080 TI XC.
And it's still beta so hopefully it will get better. Precision X OC will OC the card but no fan control. Precision X seems much better then X1 :(

Finally received my 2080 XC Black Edition through Step-Up, instantly fell in love with the entire design. I installed X1 right away before sliding in the card an noticed an initial idle temp. of around 50-55 C after it warmed up. After 2 days of light use I noticed a weird "clicking" noise and looked inside my case, I could see both of the fans turning off and on repeatedly, only staying on for 3 seconds maximum then turning off again. Did a quick Google search and found this thread. Sigh. 
 
I have set the curves to deal with the temp manually and seems to be working to keep it much more reasonable, just kinda upset that I might have gotten a rotten card. Will be contacting support.

Been using my RTX 2080 for a month now, there's a very slight click when fans start but its barely audible inside a closed case. Moreso, just keep the fan on at low level to avoid this. Temp idles at 38 degress Celsius with room temp at 27 (with fans at speed 10) Not bad. Happy with my card

I've been throwing everything I can find at my 2080 Ti XC Gaming for several weeks now and it's been rock solid, quiet, cool, etc.
 
Tonight I spent a few hours running GPU benchmarks, playing games, and watching videos. After closing everything I found that the GPU and memory were jumping from typical active (1350/7000 MHz) to typical idle (300/405 MHz) speeds and back, the GPU temp wasn't going down below 54°C, and the fans were spinning up and down.
 
It's as if something had been left running in the background periodically applying GPU load. After a reboot and a few minutes, idle behavior is back to normal (300/405 MHz, 34°C, fans off).
 
Looks like a software issue to me.

I have two 2080Ti XC Ultra's arriving Friday, hoping I won't have these issues. With my previous Asus STRIX 1080Ti OC cards (I always run SLI) I had to click the silent mode button on their GPU-Tweak software to stop the cards from making the exact same sound as detailed in this thread. They would always do that start / stop thing unless I unchecked the silent mode box. EVGA could just implement that in the next version of Precision I bet.

Played around a bit more, and am now 99% sure that this "idle thrashing" is related to Precision's OSD and HWM features. Enabling them doesn't cause thrashing right away, but if I run a game with those features enabled, thrashing occurs sometimes after I exit the game. If I then click OSD and HWM off, the GPU immediately starts cooling down normally.

Will tweak with this when I get home today and see if it helps. Thank you very much.

Wow, turns out I was wrong. Started seeing this "idle thrashing" nearly all the time. I think I found a solution on the Web though, and it has nothing to do with the GPU. Starting a new thread about "idle thrashing".

I purchased an EVGA 2080 XC.  I put the card in without doing a DDU.  Performance was there but heat was insane.  Downloaded EVGA Precision X1 and all of the sudden not only did the heat not go away, my FPS dipped in half.  I tried everything under the sun including 2 calls to their tech support AND their forums.  EVGA told me it was the games fault and then my systems fault.  I finally called Newegg and had them replace it with another BRAND NEW card.  I then changed my case, added 5 new ML series corsair smart fans, 16gb of additional ram, and 1,500gb of m.2 drives.  I did a CLEAN install of windows and started from scratch, downloaded brand new drivers and did another DDU into a 2nd clean install of display drivers.  The issue is still there.  I'm pulling 90fps on Overwatch with 84 degrees c.  I called EVGA tonight and they said they would send me a new THIRD card if I put a hold on my credit card...

1st Node - My fans are set to 15% speed at 30 degrees C or below.  This helps keep the card cool at all times and you won't have that constant clicking sound.  That's the fans cutting on and off.  By the fans cutting on and off, it actually decreases the longevity of the fans themselves.  Older cards run at a constant 10% speed, while idle, and they will ramp up as the heat increases.  The 970 GTX, that I have set to the side, is still working after 6 years.  I have it setting there incase the 2070 RTX gives me issues.  These newer ones...  You're stuck at atleast 15% fan speed.

2nd Node - My fans are set to 50% speed when it hits *50%* degrees C.  The fans will slowly ramp up when the heat increases.  This will help to keep your card cool even playing intense games.  The card stays at, or around, 53-55 degrees C when I'm playing Battlefield V, on Ultra settings, for an hour and a half.  Those are some REALLY good numbers and the fans are only a tad bit past 50% fan usage.

3rd Node - My fans are set to 80% speed when it hets *65* degrees C.  Again, the fans will slowly ramp up as you're getting close to that temperature.  I've never seen the card get that hot, NEVER!  The highest I've seen it reach is 55 degrees C.  Make sure you constantly keep your computer clean and free of debris!  Make sure you don't have your computer setting on a rug, and make sure it has room to breath!  In other words, don't stick it in a corner under your desk with a back panel, or put it at the corner of the room and it's forcing the warm air back into the computer.

4th Node - My fans are set to 100% usage at *70* degrees C.  By this time... I'm sorry to say it, but your card is already meeting its maker 9 times out of 10...  Some people would think, "Why not set 100% fan speed at 100 degrees C?!"  at 80 degrees C, the graphic card is already too hot.  Again, make sure your computer is clean of dust, dirt, and debris!  The best thing to do is be safe, set your fans at a safe but reasonable speed, make sure the fans are increasing in speed with the increased temperatures, and check your temperatures randomly to make sure the card isn't getting too hot.

That's pretty much about it!  I highly recommend keeping your fans constantly busy to increase the longevity of your fans and card.  Decrease the speed enough to keep them active, but also at a speed that is reasonable.  15% at 30 degrees C works extremely well!

Sorry for the excessive editing.  I want to make sure I'm getting my point across properly.  A few more things I wanted to add.

1) IF you use my settings, .ake sure you have, "Enabled Automatic Control," checked.  This will keep your fans active at all times.  If you make your own fan curve, where the fans are setting at 40%+, I would highly reconsider keeping your fans active!  That's extremely too high to keep your fans active!  By using my settings at 15% fan speed, at 30 degrees C, it works fantastic for me.

2) Make sure, in options, in general, that this program starts with OS, and that is starts minimized.  This program needs to be active at all times for your fans to work properly!  I wish that there was a lighter, or less memory usage, version because there is no reason why it should be this high.  I think it's because they want that, "pretty," look but I see it as unnecessary.

3) Definately make sure that OSD is cut off because it uses too many resources and truthfully doesn't need to be on.

4) Make sure your HWM doesn't have 5, or more, different things being displayed, or monitored at one time.  This will bog down your computer!  I just have 1 HWM active and that's the temperature.  I have that marked as, "TRAY," so I can see it at all times.  I feel this is the only thing I really need to monitor.  The front, or main display, is already showing you almost everything else.  There is no need to have it showing up on your HWM as well.

*12/30/2018* Updated Temperature changes.  My temperature hit 55 Degrees C playing Battlefield 5 on ultra settings.  This was tested for 2 1/2 hours.  Best so far.  Again, if you're not looking to keep your fans active at 45, but keeping your fans active at 15... this might be the best setting for you?!  Not sure, it works wonders for me.  I love it  ;)

Hola!
Compré ayer mi Evga Rtx 2080 ti black edition. Los ventiladores suenan cuando cambia la velocidad de los mismos, ese click molesto es el cambio de voltaje que los hace cambiar de velocidad.
Mi recomendacion es mantenerlos fijos hasta 50 grados al 12% o 15% lo que mantiene la tarjeta por debajo de 40 grados.
La alta temperatura en reposo se debe a que esta grafica mantiene siempre un 10% de power mientras que mi 1080ti se mantenia sobre un 5%. Creo que esto es algo que se puede solucionar con una actualizacion de drivers, todas las RTX tienen este problema, da igual la marca, evga, msi, asus... Todas se mantienen en una power muy alta en reposo.

That's just the fan motor start up.  Not sure why it's constantly doing that.

I too am having this issue and idling at 55 on my XC ultra 2080.   Between this and the Gysnc flickering I'm ready to return to amazon.

Why do people care about their idle temp so much?  My 2080 Ti XC Gaming sits at 55C idle but the fans are at a silent 15%.  These cards can go up to 90C so 55C at idle is nothing, so why so concerned?
I could run my fans at 70% when the card is idle and keep my temps in the 30C's but what the heck for, just to waste power?  Idle temps are meaningless your temperature and fan speeds under load is what matters.
 
TechPowerUp had an idle temp of 50C so 55C is not far off.  Unless my card was idling in the 70C's and had to run the fans at 50% to keep it cool I see nothing wrong with the cards.
For example if you read that TechPowerUp article the gigabyte card had the highest idle at 57C so based on that you might think it has thermal paste issues or bad fans but under load it was one of the cooler cards at 69C.  Compare that to the founders edition which idled at a cool 42C but at load was 77C with 3 dBA more noise!

Because the high idle temperature causes my fans to click on and off every few seconds. And I do mean click. They work fine when running but click when stopping or starting. I spent extra money on a premium product from a premium brand because I expected it to operate well. The entire point of spending $100 on a big fancy cooler is quiet and cool operation. My last card from a different brand had a true fan stop and didn't make a peep unless I was gaming. Now I have to worry about X1 software working and designing a custom fan curve to block a broken feature from bugging me. Default setting should work well out of the box for a product of this calibre. And don't go down the case airflow route. I've got 4 140s and plenty of open space. I don't understand why the card idles this high.
