Maybe trying in 10 mvolt increments.

Not sure what happened, had the PC switched off for a few hours and the card doesnt seem all that loud anymore (not sure if placebo or magic). I'm gonna run it as it is for now. Thanks for the tips though, much appreciated! When I can be arsed I'll give that skyn3t bios a go and try undervolting a tad bit
. Not really looking to OC it and sacrifice noise/temps at this point atleast, reason I bought this beast was because of an extremely good sale price (399 euros).
