Received my replacement. It was a brand new unit. Same loud whining noise from the pump, like something you would hear from a refrigerator. Temps and Performance are stellar but the noise is maddening. I upgraded from a 1080 ti Hybrid which was whisper quiet.


Like I said. It's an intrinsic problem with their pump design/manufacturing this generation and evga insists on ignoring it and charging more money than ever instead of fixing the issue and offering replacements.

I hope someone from EVGA's hardware team monitors this forum because I've tried my best to get them to at least admit this isn't a "gentle hum" if not work towards fixing it.

Not sure where to go from here, I bought from Newegg and they won't take returns. I doubt another replacement will solve the issue and not sure I would want to go with an air version.

im SO GLAD i checked the forums before purchasing. EVERY single review i've seen of the evga hybrid kits, or hybrid cards of the RTX series have all complained about horrendous pump noise.
 
 
so, since this is clearly an issue, when is there going to be revision to the pump or assembly or source a new one to alleviate this? i'd be very relieved to see EVGA just come out and be frank and say, "hey, we know this kinda sucks, especially for like $1,500. we apologize and we're working on it. we're hoping to have it remedied by (date)"
like, just be honest, guys!
 
 
my 2080ti xc ultra runs flawlessly with the 3 slot cooler with a good OC, 65 is as high as it climbs for temps, but the fan noise is kind of a lot to contend with... so i wanted to grab a hybrid cooler, but i guess i won't now.

+1 to this. EVGA needs to acknowledge the issue and offer a revised version with the pump noise issue fixed for everyone who's stuck with this noisy mess after spending $1500 for a silence optimized card!

Could see why it's noisy. Cooling a 2080ti is a lot more demanding than a 1080ti. As for if they fix it The Kingpin 2080ti is going to have a pump with a 240mm rad on it. Maybe better pump?

After a night with it this one is definitely better than the last one but still has that high pitch noise just not as loud. I'm just going to have to be happy with this. Hopefully there is a revision down the road.
 
Playing Division 2, temps never broke 58c under full load.

Man, between this and another thread discussing the pump noise issue, I'm probably just going to refuse delivery of my hybrid kit, which arrives from EVGA today. I have a 2080 ti FTW3 Ultra with triple fan cooler. Fan noise gets loud during game play with aggressive fan curves to keep temps low. But at this point I think I'd prefer that over the sound of a beer fridge on my desk while I'm trying to crunch numbers in Excel and run analytics software 7+ hours a day.

It just doesn't seem worth the trade-off for 1-2 hours of gaming 3-4 days a week.

During Gaming it's barely noticeable with a couple fans running but when not gaming that is when it is very apparent. I have a computer outfitted with quiet fans and all I hear is the hybrid pump when browsing the internet or doing excel, word work.

90% of my computer use is for work, not gaming. So this sounds like a poor trade off to me.

Re: RTX 2080 TI FTW3 ULTRA HYBRID GAMING pump noise 2019/03/21 20:54:25 (permalink)
My hybrid kit arrived today and rather than refusing delivery, I decided to live a little and install it. I must say, the tear down of the stock cooler setup and install of the Hybrid AIO setup was a fun project to take on. I was quite nervous about it as I've never done something like this to a GPU before. After installing the radiator and card back into the computer my heart was racing while I waited for the initial boot. But overall, I enjoyed the process.

Anyway, all is working well and temperatures are great. If I listen close I can definitely hear the pump noise and can understand how this would annoy people who are truly going for a silent setup. Fortunately, I seem to prefer the sound of some fans running in my system. I have 2x ML140, 2xLL140 fans and now 1xML120 fan for the GPU radiator. I keep my fans running at about 40% during normal usage and ramp up to about 80% during gaming. At 40% fan speeds I can't hear the pump at all, even just 3 feet from my head.

It's definitely a different noise than I had because I don't have to listen closely to hear it, some times I can hear it from another room If it's quiet or I let the door open, and that's when it idle :D, but the temperatures are great with me also, I've never be above 60-61 on the time I used it.
 
BTW, EVGA received my RMA today (just before the weekend ) and I asked to downgrade me to FTW3 ultra gaming (air) amd see how it goes

Re: RTX 2080 TI FTW3 ULTRA HYBRID GAMING pump noise 2019/03/22 16:32:21 (permalink)
I too have a pump problem, basically my AIO cpu pump has the same exact sound if I go above 80% pump speed so I know for a fact its a problem of the pump running at 100% speed. Its kind of loud during idle but much, much quieter than the fan curve I had to use with my air cooler to keep it cool with full OC. Now I have max of 58C (push/pull intake at 70% fan speed) during gaming at full OC and 124% power with hotest memory being 69C in a 24C room (+1000mhz). From what I've seen (vids) my pump is quieter than most people have it but its still loud enough to hear it during idle so I am not sure if I want to RMA it and get a louder/same pump...
 
edit: Not to mention the whole disassembly of original air cooler and putting on the hybrid kit for my FTW3 was really interesting and took some time. Not sure I want to do it again unless I know the pump will be quiet. I only got the hybrid kit yesterday tho so I might change my mind.

Oh man. Yeah if I could hear it from a different room that would definitely be a problem. I just tested turning all my fans off and I can just barely hear it when standing at the door of my office, about 5 feet away. It sounds like a low humming. But it gets completely drowned out when my fans are on at 40% and/or the HVAC in my house kicks on.  

Sorry for you guys experiencing issues. If I went through the whole install process just to run into the noise you guys are talking about, I'd definitely be annoyed.

Yeah it does suck but thankfully for me its not as audible, especially when I put my fans to around 70% (1.7k rpm) and since its the new noctua nf-a12x25 its quieter than the stock fan curve of the air cooler. Finally when I put my headphones on I can't hear the card at all... Though next time I might just get over my fear of fluffing up a custom loop and try to do that instead...

I know what you mean. This time around I'm going to remain happy with a CPU AIO and a hybrid GPU. But next go around, I'm going to sack up and go full custom loop. I imagine completing a custom loop build would bring one hell of a sense of satisfaction.

My first pump was significantly louder than even the OP's. I RMA'd it and the replacement is quieter. The high pitch wine is gone. Just has a low pitched whirring/grrring sound. It's still not quiet, like the EVGA 1080 Ti Hybrid it replaced, but the replacement is better. I think EVGA has some serious quality control problems with whoever is supplying the pump now.

My RMA is on it's way back now, I hope that I will get quieter version from the previous one.

Hala Ali,
 
Please let me know what the RMA sounds like, because i have the same problem with my 2080ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid, and im wondering whether to RMA or not.

Yeah, do let us know how the RMAd one sounds like, while my hybrid is not that loud, I would love to have it barely audible/no noise at all... I am using Fractal R6 (open top) and its pretty audible, even without open top (got the case because of some coil whine that I can't hear anymore thanks to the case, only pump from the hybrid now).

I just received mine, 
It's better than the previous one 
but it's still too load.
if that's my first card I will definitely RMA it, 
but I will not return it because it consumes too much time and money.

Don't mean to pile on, but yeah... I've got a 2080 ti Hybrid too and I've got the same awful, awful pump noise. I have to wear headphones to tolerate being near my computer, but even with music going I still hear the pump because of the pitch and the raw volume. Never had a problem with EVGA products before, but this is just absurdly awful. Hopefully an RMA fixes it. But based on how many people are having this issue, surely it's either a fundamental design flaw or whoever is making the pumps is doing a terrible job. Not sure how RMAs could fix either one of those issues.

I just need one person to tell me they have a quite 2080ti FTW3 Hybrid and i will RMA. The thing is everyone on here who has RMA'd has the same problem. I have the chance to RMA now as i have the same ugly pump noise, but i dont want to pay 200 USD shipping from the middle east to europe, and be without my computer for 3 weeks, only to receive a card with a similar problem or worse. I mean I had a whisper quiet 980ti Hybrid, but based on my research on the forum this problem was also with the 980ti hybird and 1080ti hybrid, but the difference is you would get people popping up saying that theirs is quiet and also when ppl RMA's those they got quite ones back.
 
Does anyone on here have a quiet 2080ti FTW3 ultra Hybrid? And was the hybrid pre-installed of you DIY?

You might be able to fix this via DIY by finding out if you're able to use the AIO from the 980 ti to the 2080 Ti FTW if they are in the same specs via base plate and screw holes around the GPU socket area.

If that doesn't work, you could go with another GPU AIO bracket from either Corsair or NZXT and pretty much spend $200 or less for a new hybrid kit.  Just need to make sure it's compatible first. 
 
So at the end of the day, you still have options but unfortunate.

I have sold my 980ti already, and if you change the pump doesnt that void the warranty as well on the 1500 USD card which ive literally had less than 2 weeks. Plus i have never taken a gpu apart so i dont have much experience in that field. I really appreciate the advice but as customers we really dont have to go through this, this is a turn off for many people who purchased this card and EVGA should be more transparent about it and let us decide how much noise we want, not advertise this as a silent card where u dont get 1 second of silence not even in idle. I mean if i knew beforehand i wouldve gotten the FTW3 Ultra air cooled (and many other people wouldnt have puchased the hybrid card); its just hotter by 3-6 degrees and the fan only makes noise under load, so on idle you would have total peace. Plus i would rather have fan noise than a buzzing compressor noise which is doing my head in on a daily basis.

I own "EVGA RTX 2080TI XC Hybrid gaming", The pump runs @ 100% RPM & is loud like a refrigerator compressor running 24/7, also the VRM fan keeps clicking on & off @ idel which is very annoying. I was previously was using a Nvidia reference 4GB GTX980 that I installed a NZXT Kraken G10 bracket & 120mm Corsair H75 AIO cooler to the GPU, it was completely silent using my Asus maximus vii hero Z97 motherboard to control pump & fan speeds! The pump inside the new EVGA RTX 2080ti hybrid use a "Asetek Gen 6 Pump" which uses a newly designed metal propeller blade(check: gamersnexus h150I review). The noise your hearing is from the pump speed being too high, EVGA can fix this via [Firmware update] or [Bios flash] by slowing pump speed down to 20% & still having enough flow.

Re: RTX 2080 TI FTW3 ULTRA HYBRID GAMING pump noise 2019/04/03 05:09:00 (permalink)

I own "EVGA RTX 2080TI XC Hybrid gaming", The pump runs @ 100% RPM & is loud like a refrigerator compressor running 24/7, also the VRM fan keeps clicking on & off @ idel which is very annoying. I was previously was using a Nvidia reference 4GB GTX980 that I installed a NZXT Kraken G10 bracket & 120mm Corsair H75 AIO cooler to the GPU, it was completely silent using my Asus maximus vii hero Z97 motherboard to control pump & fan speeds! The pump inside the new EVGA RTX 2080ti hybrid use a "Asetek Gen 6 Pump" which uses a newly designed metal propeller blade(check: gamersnexus h150I review). The noise your hearing is from the pump speed being too high, EVGA can fix this via [Firmware update] or [Bios flash] by slowing pump speed down to 20% & still having enough flow.




So is there a modded bios or can we contact EVGA to make one to slower the pump?

you can try asking EVGA Support if they have a firmware to slow down pump speed it's worth a try. As for custom RTX2080ti bios i'm not sure tbh I only have experience flashing my older GTX 980, you can try looking over @xtremesystemsorg (#BIOS FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK#)

Nope. EVGA is silent on it while still approving RMAs left and right for some reason, even though the pumps are perfectly fine. The fix is simple. Let us turn the pump down to 80% in X1.

Until they do they are going to keep getting RMAs, which undoubtedly costs EVGA money. It's getting a bit ridiculous.

This talk about buzzing is all over feedback I've researched about the 2080 ti hybrid coolers. I'm shocked enough to eat the ship back cost. First time buyer and I know these are just forum reports but it seems to be a consistent issue. I'm already worried enough about fixing the inevitable clicking noise in my 2080 ti xc ultra once I put my rig together, I'd much rather deal with that
