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:
- Using the AMD control panel application to change the fan curve (to no avail);
- Using MSI afterburner to change fan speed;
- Placing the GPU in both PCI-e slots on the motherboard;
- Downloading the latest recommended driver.
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.
- MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX motherboard
- Ryzen 5 3600X CPU
- 2*8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz RAM
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler
- T6E Archer TP-Link Wifi PCI-e adapter
- 2* be quiet! PureWings 2 120mm PWM case fans
- The Gigabyte Radeon RX5700 XT OC Gaming 8G GPU
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
