Not sure if I've got a bad GPU, but thought I would ask fellow users about it just to make sure. Since installing this card, the fan and radiator are constantly spinning very loudly. This occurs from the moment I power on my computer. Even when I'm doing nothing and the computer is not being used at all, the fan/radiator continues spinning loudly and constantly. I bought this card to replace a Gigabyte Aorus 2080 Xtreme Waterforce. The Aorus 2080's fans never were so loud and constantly spinning even after several hours of gaming. Is it normal for this EVGA card to be so loud with its fans constantly spinning even when the computer is idle? I attached a screen of Precision X1 to show what's happening. This is while no other programs are running. Any advice would be appreciated.

Your fans are on "auto" aka gpu bios control.  The live fan speed is on the left, the control is on the right.  Click "auto" so it is grey'd out and it will change to manual fans.
 
I'me pretty sure those fans speeds are what the bios wants to run at that temp, and the temp is pretty good for 100% power limit with that card after a long period under load at that fan speed.  Try a Noctua A12 fan or two if you want quieter operation or manually turn down the fans in X1 and live with higher temps.

Also why you card sitting on 59C? It is way too much for idle.
I can agree, fan curve is very aggressive and fans hit neat 100% on 50-55C, but in my case I have <40C idle and fans was silent. Now I am controlling them via motherboard as I like.

This is off topic, but does the pump on this card sound like the refrigerator pump on the RTX FTW3 card? Or is this a different quit revision>
Can anyone confirm?

Quick (and a bit embarrassing) update... It wasn't my GPU after all. It's my CPU fans/radiator which was mounted along side the GPU's fans/radiator. I'm kinda new at building my own PC, so can only confess ignorance.

The GPU seemed to be at full load though, from the clock rates and the power. If you were not running any program then I think something was not right..
