Is EVGA RTX the only one that does the clicking sound when the fan starts and stops ?

So my friend has a 2070 EVGA card and the fan makes clicking sounds when starting and stopping. He doesn't mind but it would definitely bother me. Wanted to get a Gigabyte windforce 2070 or maybe a 2080 but do they also make that sound ? I'd like to get a EVGA super cause the card looks cool but I won't if it's making that clicking sound. Strix looks good but it might not fit.

Set a custom fan curve and don't worry about the clicking? The only time it would click is at system startup since the fans aren't spinning, but otherwise when the PC is on the fans would always spin. I never understood the point of turning off the GPU fans if the temp was below say 60C. You can run the fans at a level below your other case fans and still never hear it and get idle temperatures in the 30-40C range and prolong the life of the GPU. Personally i have my GPU fans at 40% always on a gtx 1080 zotac amp extreme and it keeps temps in check and isn't loud.

I'm not installing 3rd party software to set a fan curve.

Use the manufactures software of what ever card you buy to set the fan curve...

Guess I should have been more clear I'm not installing any software to control a fan curve, it should have been designed better. The MSI Gaming X and the Strix I read make no noise whats so ever but cost more unfortunately.

Just sure about this one though:

Overclocking and running programs is two different things I have enough programs running I don't want anymore. I got the MSI and it makes no noise.

yeaaaah... even triple fan coolers are designed with custom curves in mind, even when they have "quiet" and "boost" mode bios switches. Relying on the system's profile is akin to relying on the worst case scenario for operation.

so do you also not wanna track frame times, utilization, usage, memory allocation, etc? cuz that's what afterburner is for. Just ask MSI though i guess technically MSIAB is no longer third party when running an MSIAB card

how will you figure out where you can dial in more performance if you can't track usage, and don't have a tool to up clocks?

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I'm just more interested in just playing the dam games, instead of trying to get one extra frame here and there. Good day

Me too, I don't OC anything on my system but I do set fan curves, set-em and forget-em. It's about extending the life expectancy of my $4000 investment, heat kills electronics, waiting for the factory curves to kick in allows heat to build up inside the case which is stressful on other components. I don't give two s***s about a few extra frames, a few extra MHz processing power, or milliseconds response time, I never notice such things and the loads I put on a system don't really benefit from it. But quality equipment, well cared for, means I spend less in the long run.


To each their own hope you find the card that fits what your looking for
