Gigabyte 1080 Waterforce pump noise
« on: May 08, 2018, 08:30:32 pm »
Hey lads :)

Ive noticed my 1080 is making some noise and i hope some of you guys can assist me :) Ive included 2 videos of it.

The closeup video is under load (PUBG), with the side off and the second is a bit further away. Under the test i've configured the fan to 25% in the gigabyte software, and the temps are around 60 degrees - so i the cooling is perfect (i think). When the system is idle, there is close to no sound - still able to hear it, but it only really occurs after a stress period - and then it takes 10-15 minutes for it to resume idle sound.

The sound is from the PUMP - or somewhere located near that on the card.

As you can hear it's quite “noisy” and mechanical sounding - i don't know if its bad for the card but i'm pretty sure it shouldn't sound like that under load. The sound itself are really annoying and im not sure whether or not this is bad for the card - im hoping you can you can provide some assist.
