Gigabyte GTX 670 noise

Heres the sound outside of my phantom 410 case when i bump up fan speed to 80% . Is it supposed to be this loud or should I consider water cooling it if I want it quieter. I have my fan curve set up so that its at about 75% when its at 60 °C which I do reach sometimes when playing maxed out games and overclocked.

  1. Doesn't sound too loud, but it might be the video. As long as it's just the fan sound, it should be alright. That card does have 3 fans, and most custom cooled cards have a non reference pcb, so water cooling is likely out of the question.

    You are going against the card's engineered design. 60c at 75% fan is going to be loud.... and unnecessarily cool. That card was designed to be quiet and operate at a higher temperature with the fan running at no more than 50%. Switch your fan to Auto or use a less aggressive fan profile that allows the GPU to get up closer to 70c or so.
