DraggonyI recently made the upgrade from a GTX970 Strix card to the EVGA 3060 XC My issue is that when the fans kick on it makes a strange noise like somone just quickly flicked one of those springy door stops.It's super annoying and I hear it over videos I listen to whilst working. I actually thought it was my upstairs neighbors making noise but since realized a pattern and confirmed it makes a noise each time the cards fans spin up. Looking through the forum I noted people suggesting installing Precision X1 which I have and the problem persists. I'm using 3D editing software so my GPU is in use off and on and I hear that fan startup constantly again and again while doing anything. I'm used to my old Strix card having idle fans that would kick on while temps go up but it was dead silent. New fans are made poorly or something or is my card just broken? I could run the fans constant? or should I be worried about the cards longevity? I could too record the sound perhaps and post it here if that'd help somehow.
rico_070i have the same problem i got a evga xc b3060 black edition and one of the fans wen it is at around 20/30% fan speed and than it ramps up it makes some kinda weird fart noise that only way i can discribe how it sounds i tough first it was me psu but no it the card it self i tested another card same one becaus i got 2 and me second one didnt make this noise so it something worng with the fan and it the one right behind the display port and hdmi that the one makin the weird sounds
DragonStar9Mine is doing the same thing. The fans alternate one at a time on and off at low load and one of them is making a sort of grinding, but not actual grinding, sound on start up. Seems like the sound a bad motor or inadequate power delivery to that one fan would be caused by at startup in my experience with electric motors. Either one can cause premature failure eventually if run in that way. My 3060 ti doesn't do this but the 3060 does. With Precision x1 I can set the fan to run constant but that's not how the card should act and doesn't solve the actual problem if a fan is defective and may fail prematurely. I think I'm going to contact EVGA directly.

SneakerI just got the 3060 Ti XC and on the 2nd day I noticed the noise. At idle without the fans running when the card (slowly) hits ~43C it will kick on the fans every few seconds. Annoying! and bad for the fans and controller?Annoying!
