Default Re: GTX570 pretty loud?

Guys, just did some testing with my Sonata III but with side panel open and air blowing onto it using a bit fan. Temps are about 45C idle and up to 85-90 under load. This is with an OPEN case. I don't mind the higher temps, but my fan speed is idling around 42%, and when gaming this ramps up quickly to about 75%-85%, which is incredibly loud. The fan is sounding like an airblower in there! Even at a speed of 65% it's VERY loud.

Could it be I'm having a faulty card and/or cooler? This is a Gigabyte brand.

It's quite possible. Does anyone know if reseating the cooling solution voids Gigabyte's warranty?

As for having a loud video card, it happens. When gaming on my fiance's computer, the HD 4870's cooler ramps up to audible levels. When not gaming, it is completely silent. On high-end video cards, that's just what you get sometimes. As long as it's quiet at idle, it's operating correctly.

Not my movie, but my GTX570 sound about like this when running the fan at 75% = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71zQx...eature=related. Here's one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJDCe...eature=related with the GTX580 (same cooler right?), about same noise. Maybe I'm just expecting too much, but silent or even 'not loud', this card is not.

When I compare this to this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYWjs...eature=related) it's night and day

Pretty much all stock blower coolers are loud, thats why I got the twin frozr 2 version, I'm sick of loud blower coolers too. Only thing you might check is if the cooler is clean inside, dust blockage could be causing it to heat up quick and ramp the fan up faster.

They are pretty loud during load, but personally I see that as a good thing. I want to know the fans are kicking in full throttle to keep the temps down. Besides, I game loud anyway so barely notice.

What fan speed is normal for about 70C temp and 85 temp?

IIRC, its typically in the 3000 RPM range, perhaps 3200 or 3400 RPM or so but I could be off by a few revolutions

Hell no lol.

My 570 was not silent after hitting mid 60's. My 580 is not silent when it gets into the same temperate range.

Well, a little follow up here. Bought a new case (Fractal Design R3), did a very nice job with cable management (even if I say so myself), got a 120mm intake fan in the front, a 140mm at the side blowing on the GPU and a 120mm outtake fan. Temps for the GTX570 under load have dropped about 10C. But it still is too loud for my tastes, and hot (getting around 80C when playing about an hour of LOTRO).

When I put my hand at the back of the case where the card is, VERY hot air is pumped out there. So my guess the cooler inside of the case (clearly visible by the cpu temps) isn't exactly that much of a help.

Normal? If so, then I think I'll be getting an Accelero to get the noise and temp down.

lapino, what you just described is the card operating normally. That hot air means that the cooler on the card is working great. I would be worried if you wern't feeling heat coming out of the back of the case. You're not going to get a high end card that is silent under load without resorting to a mammoth aftermarket heatsink.

Completely normal. Get an aftermarket cooler.

Is the Accelero Extreme Plus with the added VRM heatsinks the best option then?
