GTX 1060 Windforce 3GB Fans goes 100% and won't stop spinning

 Hello Gigabyte,

Bought the above card a few days ago.

But after around 5-10 minutes of gaming the fans on the card starts spinning at maximum (or atleast that what it sounds like). The GPU temp is around 60c, but this fan speed seems very excessive.

And what makes it really strange is that after I close the game the fans keeps spinning really fast & loud. I need to turn off the computer and the on for it to reset. A reboot only turns down the fans slightly.

Not even playing a very demanding game, Diablo 3 @ 2560x1440.

Bought this card in hope to keep the noise down.

I had a old Radeon card which was at 95c(apparently their working temp) before that didn't make half the noise.

I have sufficient airflow in my case.

I read about a BIOS update that might fix this, but I can't find where to download a new BIOS from your support pages.

Best regards,

Christofer
