I very recently built a PC with the specs below. This is the first PC I have built.
From the moment I powered on the PC, even before downloading the OS, the GPU fans were maxed out at 100% (around 4400 RPM). After running some tests by shutting down the CPU and case fans in the BIOS (after getting Windows 10 running), I concluded that the fans at fault were in the GPU. This has caused my PC to sound like a jet engine. The temperature in the system so far never reaches 35 degrees Celsius, and the GPU is at around 30. I have only been using chrome and the GPU tuning tools, no high-load programs.
I have seen several issues similar to mine on many different forums but I cannot find a definitive solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have tried:
None of these have worked, and I am considering replacing the card, although I really don't want to. However, the durability of the fans will be greatly degraded by constant usage at 100%, so I don't see an alternative at the moment.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
