This has been fixed in newer production and it is no longer necessary to apply this update.

    Thank Jacob. May I ask why the minimum is 42% fan speed on a card that runs at such a low temperature? Why not around 30%? Just curious. Thanks for the update again.

    I have EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti (02G-P4-3751-KR) and I have same issue with the fan noise, is some bios update for me? Becase if I cant repair this situation, then I must return this card and I buy Zotac with same chip. And second question - is possible apply bios update on linux?
     
    Thanks for answers and sorry for my bad english

    I haven't even received my card yet,  and it is already set for a return and refund.   It's a shame that EVGA has been having so any complaints with the noise of the ACX over multiple lines of Cards.   I will not adopt another EVGA product in the early stages again. :-(  
     
    Sorry EVGA.  the ACX cooler needs a revamp of serious proportions.

    Hi Jacob,
     
    Are you planning to release a similar update also for the SC model? I received mine today and to be honest, the fan noise could be significantly lower in idle. Here's a screenshot of my stock 750Ti SC after running three loops of Unigine Valley and one loop of Heaven 4.0...

    After patching, fan noise is only low when running Microsoft Display driver. When installing Nvidia driver again it resumes full turbine levels.

    Please, release a similar update for 750Ti SC - when idle its fan noise is significantly higher than my previous MSI 650Ti Hawk. Made me even think about switching back...

    I have the same situation as mejje and Pirate85. After installing the BIOS update and rebooting, the card is quieter. After I reinstall the nVidia driver, the sound is back at its old level at idle.

    Just received my card,  I am going to run the BIOS update, as I had the RMA and Return set up to get the Gigabyte card, and they are completely sold out now.  Oh well, hopefully it isn't as loud as it is said when it is inside my Phantom Case.

    Well, it seems the Phantom Case is a wizard.  With everything closed up, clean and set up, Folding with all three cards running at 100% and the Classified at +65 on the core, the 750TI FTW at +52 on the core, all I can hear are the case fans lightly humming and a slight coil whine from one of the classifieds.  
     
    Glad I checked the card prior to sending this back, and this is the last time I make any claims PRIOR to dealing with it myself.  
     
    P.S.  The case is still a work in Progress.  I need to clean up the wires in the back, Mount the pump better and remount the HDD on the bottom right...

    EVGA_JacobF, can we expect an answer regarding the BIOS update not working after Nvidia driver install? Have you checked with the devs?

    I updated the latest drivers and now the card is loud again. I even uninstall all the drivers one by one reflashed the bios from this thread to see if i could get it back to how it was before but im not able to. these drivers are stable release so people are going to get prompted with update available so more people will be seeing this issue again.
     
    this is the bios thats on the card now.

    I have had the same issue as everyone above regarding fans reverting back to higher rpm's after installing drivers again.
    The 770/760 dual BIOS SKUs just got a firmware update to allow fan speed tuning below 42% with EVGA precision ... Will a similar update be released for the 750ti?
     
    Thanks!

    http://youtu.be/D89czm6yK30 just watched Jayztwocents review. Watch it all the way through.

    To me, he is the most trustworthy reviewer available. Most others don't cover issues or they will give a little blurb but try not to offend the company.

    He flat out covers the noise problem outright. I can not hear mine, which makes me feel lucky. If Gigabyte had not been out of stock when I received the FTW, I would not have opened the box.

    EVGA, please do something about this issue. I am not sure if you can go lower as you used voltage regulation rather than Pwm, but with this many complaints, something has to give.

    Agreed.
    I asked about the SC model's noise level from one of the reviewers of the Digital Storm and I was told "pretty darn quiet". I do understand that people have different definitions for quiet, but no, this thing just isn't quiet. I have the Ivy i5 stock cooler in my system and I find it way more pleasant noise-wise. I feel sorry for some of the ACX owners if it really is even more louder than the SC.
    I hate to put this card on sale but I'm happy to pay a few euros more to get my hands on a more quiet one.

    Watch his review on the gigabyte.. the fan is locked at 52%, and has it tested up to 100%, and it is said to be completely silent.

    More detail for EVGA: after updating the drivers to the latest version, the fan is relatively quiet through the "Starting Windows..." screen, and then it becomes loud again at the login screen.  Is another update being worked on?

    I have a fan cooled system, with a Be Quiet! PSU and an Arctic Freezing i30, and this is significantly louder.
     
    I'm shocked as this was supposedly the quiet model, there are so many complaints online about the single fan solution and I paid £35 more to get this version! :(
     
    I just ordered a fanless PSU to quieten my system even more, if this BIOS update doesn't fix this noise this card is going straight back as it will not only be a total waste of the £35 extra on it, but on the £60 extra on a fanless PSU :(

    I'm so angry while I was googling gtx 750ti noise before I ordered I didn't find this, wish I'd bought the MSI card instead it's getting great reviews for noise ( 26db) I'm utterly stunned anyone would call this ACX cooling 'silent'

    The nvidia control panel reports this FTW ACX as

    part number: 2010 0050
    BIOS: 82.07.25.00.50
     
     
    what is the version of this update? I don't want to flash the wrong card, or one that's already flashed.
     
    Edit, no matter, found it,
    the new BIOS is 82.07.25.00.53, but based on the other posts in this forum the update won't really help much, returning the card :(
     
    Anyone know about the part numbers though, so any others viewing this can be sure if it's ok ?

    Since I installed this card, including the Bios update less than a week ago, sleep mode on my PC-win7-64bit crashes when I try to wake from sleep. The power is on but nothing happens, with a blank screen. and I have to hard powerup to restart. Any help?

    So gutted about this fan issue as only the EVGA 750ti has g-sync compatibility at the moment as no others have a displayport :(

    Card has gone back, such a shame EVGA, would have been a great card, just needed PWM fans.

    I can only hope the gtx 8xx desktop parts come out fairly soon, with displayport and some really quiet cooling solutions (passive even would be awesome)

    I also have a problem after installing nvidia drivers. Fan noise is acceptable after updating the firmware, but as soon as I install nvidia drivers, the fans go back up!
    Is it the drivers or the firmware?

    Re: EVGA GTX 750 Ti FTW BIOS Update (Reduced Fan Noise) 2014/03/24 18:11:22 (permalink)
    So... 5 days without any information or reply? 
    I recently switched from a PowerColor R7 260X to the Evga GTX 750 TI superclocked 02G-P4-3753-KR because of the tdp and (so I thought) the noise-advantages... (lower tdp, not as much heat = quieter)
     
    I build my my rig making sure my pc was really quiet (thats why I replaced the r7 260x so fast) but since I installed the evga-card all hell broke loose.
    In idle it´s three times the noise of the r7 260x under full load ?!?
     
    I specifically bought an evga card and decided against saving a little money (€ 20,-) and go with a zotac or palit since it was supposed to be a real premium product especially since the service was supposed to be top notch...
     
    Now I´m very disappointet to find out that evga isn´t all it´s cracked up to be.
     
    Could you please at least give us any status updates ???
     
    I have 14 days to send this card back if nothing changes and I really wouldn´t like to not get all of my money back because I used the card for a couple of days hoping a new (working !!!) bios or something would be released adressing the issue... (Yeah they can do that here: Refund only a percentage of your money because you used the card a couple of days...)
     
    Thank you !!!

    I thought this would be a great card for my super quiet mini-itx build!  I did the firmware update which seemed to work well, but as others said the noise did go back up after the driver install.  I really don't want to return this card, I think for the price/performance it was a great buy.   Although, if the noise isn't fixed I may consider returning it.

    Please, release a similar update for 750Ti SC - when idle its fan noise is significantly higher than my previous MSI 650Ti Hawk. Made me even think about switching back...


    Yes please!
    Idle noise way too loud!

    They released this firmware update, but stated that they couldn't make it any quieter, I found all of this out the day it arrived, the bios update really barely helps at all, so it went back the day it arrived :(
     
    If a quiet PC really is important to you, as it was to me, I'd do the same, I'm waiting for the 8xx series cards now, with displayport for g-sync, and hope there are some real quiet solutions.
     
    After all, the 750ti is so cool running and so low power and that's a 28nm Maxwell chip, the 8xx desktop cards are meant to be 20nm. Maybe we'll be lucky enough to see some sensible company offer some passive cooling versions.
