Question About ASUS 770 GTX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I recently purchased the ASUS 770 GTX with the DirectCU II cooler. I made this choice in hopes to get a very quiet card [I've been increasingly sensitive to coil whine and fan noise]. The card has been running well for the last couple of weeks and within appropriate temperatures. However, this is only the case after setting a custom fan profile and tweaking the card for hours. There are a couple of worries I had;

  1. I currently have a HAF 932 Advanced with an EVGA x79 FTW. There doesn't seem to be any alignment issues; this is the first card I've had that literally bends. Starting around 50% of the way down the length of the card, it sags considerably. I'm not sure if this constitutes an RMA. Would a new one even fix this?
  2. More importantly, the fans are loud without my custom fan profile. Now, don't get me wrong - I'm aware of how loud a video card should run. The problem is, the fans will make an inconsistent noise around 65% and above - like a pulsing or oscillating noise. Every card I've owned just sounds like a loud fan when its turned high - a noise I do not mind. Is this fan noise a problem? Could it be related to the bending of the card perhaps? It is worth noting the fan will approach 85-90% on AUTO.

I'm hoping someone can enlighten me about this card. Is my experience normal or should I RMA? If it is normal...I might just ditch the card line all together. I can't imagine it would be revered as a quiet card if it made such uncomfortable sounds.

My cards both sag pretty bad. Its normal.


I can tell when I have my fans set to 100 but I wouldn't consider it loud. Only on one card, when I set it to 100, I can hear it bounce from 100 to 95 and it continues to do it like every second. Maybe thats the sound you are hearing. I wouldn't consider that rma worthy so kept it.
