Just put together a brand new computer (Only re-used my AMD R9 270X graphics card) and everything is working great except for one small issue.
When I'm on the computer and I'm not touching anything, its dead quite, however, as soon as I open a web page or scroll up or down, the GFX card fans starts going super loud until I stop doing what I'm doing. For instance, when I'm on my desktop and decide to open a program, the fan will get super loud for a few seconds while the app opens and then when its done loading it'll quite down.
One issue that is REALLY annoying is when I load Fornite the fan runs what sounds to be full speed and WILL NOT stop until I exit out of the game - this can be super annoying because I can't have the game running in the background while I'm doing something else because the fan is so loud and obnoxious to hear running constantly and just in general. It only does this for Fornite, if I'm loading Counterstrike or any other game it usually will act normal.
I downloaded the newest drivers and software for this and also reseated the GFX card - I'm out of options on what to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Please supply INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION for someone to offer further suggestions.
Start with disabling hardware acceleration in browsers/windows settings, disable all start up(non windows) apps, windows game/monitoring settings, uninstall cheat/aimbot engines.
Sorry for not posting the correct details as I was supposed to; here is some detailed information about my rig:
Sounds like it could be an overheating problem.
Have you checked the temperatures in the AMD Radeon application?
I had a similar problem with the exact same card, problem solved when I cleaned the fans, heatsinks and replaced the thermal paste with arctic ceramic thermal paste.
You can also turn off auto fan control in settings and adjust the speed to your liking. The issue could also be the auto fan control is spazzing out
I would say it was overheating but for instance right now the computer is acting 100% normal; but as soon as I open Fortnite and I get into the lobby the fan starts blasting as if it sounds like it's at 100 percent or near it. Sometimes if I'm scrolling on a forum or downloading content it'll get loud for 2 seconds max and then go back down to slower speeds.I didn't want to set the fans manually in the event they happen to NEED the faster fan speed to cool it down I didn't want to be the reason why it isn't able to. Don't mind the huge fan spike in the picture posted below, I was just messing around with it at 100 percent.
It's normal for the fans to automatically ramp up when the card has load, however it should not be 100% fan speeds each time.
My best suggestion would be to service the card by replacing the thermal paste.
My issue was exactly the same, the temps were low when I was doing nothing, then as soon as I opened a game it would hit 90 degrees and 100% fan speeds.
When I disassembled my card, the thermal paste was extremely dry and wasn't covering the GPU die very well.
If you have applied thermal paste to a CPU, then you should be find to do it to your GPU.
There are four screws holding in the heatsink and there may be another additional 2 screws holding in the PCB (mine was the Gigabyte model which had 6 screws)
You can now separate the heatsink and PCB which gives you access to clean up the old thermal paste and re-apply.
If you are a little bit unsure, there are plenty of YouTube videos out there demonstrating the process.
