    Does anyone here use a card with "zero fan" mode that is able to keep the fan turned off in 2D/desktop mode?
    I start to hate how mine is spinning up the fans every now and then.

    My fans are running at max and I cant hear them.
    Its fitted with an Accelero Xtreme III cooler though.

    Well, idle there’s only one fan running, as exhaust, so I can easily hear every noise.
    I might try that as an alternative solution. Better to have the fans running constantly st low rpm than to have them spin up once in a while.
    The cooler on the Aorus is massive though, I wouldn’t think there’s anything to be gained by swapping it out (apart from even bigger stuff that has 2 120mm or 149mm fans).

    My Aorus(non extreme) has the fans(3) at 0% while at 2d/desktop mode.

    Does you card downclocks as it should ?(139,0&101.3MHz)

    Yes it does, but it also raises the clocks now and then.
    I do have a 3440x1440 100Hz monitor connected, that might change things a little.

    Interesting to hear yours stays silent all the time...

    Sure, sometimes the clocks go up a little but it's only to 1544MHz in my case and since the card idles at 40 something degrees there is a huge gap up to 60 something when the fan start to spin. 1544MHz and 25% load is quite trivial after all and shouldn't get the fans spinning.

    Yes, but it downclocks properly only with the 'optimal power' setting.

    Its possible that your monitor complicate things cause users with 144Hz monitors were having downclocking issues.
    There is a workaround though if I remember well.

    My Strix has fans on off in 2D. Up to 60 degrees.

    Honestly, where do you people get GPU's like that?

    My 1080Ti not only REFUSES to Clock past 2037, the best stable OC it can get while undervolted is 1960mhz @ 1.012v

    Watercooled helps.

    Mine is with AIO, don't think that full loop would help much. The bloody lottery is the key factor here.

    p.s. Agent, are you using Optimal Power by any chance?

    Real water definitely helps over AIO.

    Think I recall every 10c drop in temps brought 20mhz or so.
    Plus AIOs don't cover VRM/memory which helps reduce power consumption a bit.

    Optimal power globally, max performance makes no difference.

    It’s a minor difference anyhow nowadays.

    PS: my card is set to „optimal power“, and the GPU starts off with 30 degrees Celsius after a cold boot. The temp rises quickly though, fans start spinning at 55 degrees then.

    If you’re using MSI AB, what’s your idle power draw of the card? Mine won’t go below 9%.
    Mine also jumps to ~38% every once in a while, for example if you open a new window, browser tab or alike.
    At 250W regular TDP, that's 95W and you don't cool that passively. Maybe that's the culprit right there.

    Very false statement.

    For example on my STRIX 1080Ti with optimal power set and playing FF15, I see core clock vary between 1800 and 2020, which creates frame drops and micro stutters.

    With Max Performance set, core clock is nice and stable 2020 at all times.

    I can replicate this behavior in pretty much any game, FF15 was just an example.

    Hmm so you'd recommend to set max performance globally or per game?
    Just set mirrors edge catalyst to max performance and saw higher clocks. Just fixed my dips to 57. Thanks! Still would like to know if it's okay to set it globally though.

    I always set Max Performance per game basis, usually for latest big budget 3D games I always force Max Performance. For old games that aren't demanding or 2d indie games this isn't needed and I just leave it at Optimal Power.

    Forcing Max Performance globally isn't a good idea because it will make run desktop, browser and other things at higher clocks than needed.

    Maybe you should read the context.

    Max performance makes zero difference to me.

    My clocks stay max regardless due to max temp of 38c.
    That means zero throttling or clock drops in games that are loading GPU enough.

    Thanks. Well this would be a pain to replicate every driver install since I always do clean installs but still going to follow this advice:)

    Isn't that an overclocking program?
