    Coming from an MSI 2070 and 3080 (sold because don't need the performance) I now own a 3070 Strix. The cooler is awesome but why is the 0db mode dependent on power draw and not temps? Every other manufacturer does this the other way around for good reasons, with MSI I could play undemanding games without the fans ever turning on, can't do the same with Strix, the fans will run at 1000RPM and cool the card down below 30°C which is totally unnecessary. Also at least when using the Quiet BIOS there's really no need for the fans to immediately jump to those 1000RPM, in general I'm wondering why go the extra mile and offer a dual-BIOS when the differences between both options are miniscule? So while the hardware is great the fan behaviour needs some serious tuning, you're sabotaging your otherwise great cards at least when it comes to people who like it silent.

    After the last Nvidia drivers update, my usual GPU-Z performance looks like this at idle and most of the time during playing (same RPM but around 50-60 oC):
    https://imgur.com/cAxdRdQ

    I think that's ok and definetely better than it was before.

    Before this driver update I've noticed that ASUS bios update did almost nothing. GPU-Z, Afterburnd and Asus tweak showed that smh these apps take information based on the middle fan. At idle middle fan was running at 0 rpm while others somewhere about 1000 (53%, the usual problem everyone gets), but in the apps it shows that all fans are using 0%. Am not sure that's software problem since all 3 of them showed the same numbers.

    Also smh fans doesn't work correctly below 30% and after 30% and above they run full speed with one difference that the fan in the middle connects later (as you raise RPM respectively). As guy mentioned above TEMP/RPM doesn't work as it supposed to. I didn't noticed but probably that is correct that card relies on power consumption instead of temperature when it controls the fans.

    After the nvidia update I haven't tried using afterburner or asus tweak, gotta try but it seems card's bios is in an unstable state right now so barely any change in tweaks are meaningful until that. And even after drivers update I still think numbers are wrong. So I guess only thing you can do is wait for ASUS updates.

    Got my 3080 Strix this friday and 0db works for mine but now and then when the gpu power spikes for 1 second the fans ramp up from 0rpm to 1100rpm which is louder than just running them at 800rpm.
    So i tried to set a custom fan curve with gpu tweak but that also doesnt work at all.
    The fans wont spin up at all, only after i use manual mode with at least 45%. Already did the bios update but didnt help at all.
    Please fix this Asus

    PS: The voltage curve also goes up to 3000MHz but cannot go under 2056Mhz wtf?

    Little update on the situation.

    1) The last NVIDIA driver indeed made the situation better, now at idle fans doesn't spin max %. But after some time idk exactly why but fans issue is happening again. Over time it got worse and worse. First fans started spinning on the lowest "consumption" and then they run 1000+ RPM almost all the time.

    2) Tweak or afterburner doesn't work correctly at all. I guess it's related to problems with BIOS. On the screenshot, for example, if I set middle fan to 30% it indeed does so - fan stops (Why tho? I think that's also incorrect especially if you consider next sentence but THAT is still better than what's happening to side fans). But below 30 for some reason it runs at 53%. And above 30% relevantly to the slider.
    The most interesting part: side fans slider doesn't work. It completely ignores any % and works on its own. At idle GPU-Z shows that Fan 1 works at 53% 0 RPM and Fan 2 is 53% and 1000-1100 RPM. Fans registration smh only works correctly for middle fan. Tweaks gather wrong stats on left-right fans and cannot operate them.

    I guess Asus fked up somewhere with the right/left fans indicators sampling.

    I'd suggest don't use Tweak or Afterburner at all because if you do so fans will run full capacity all the time. Only Nvidia driver reinstallation can make it better.

    ASUS NEED to address this issue asap. GPU is hardly usable when all I hear while doing NOTHING are Fans running full speed somewhere for no reason. And the last BIOS update was almost 2 months ago. Like wth?

    I also heard some people doesn't have noise issues from the start. Idk if that information is true. And I also don't know if the problem is lies only withing my GPU. I hope ASUS will make an answer if this a known bios issue or this exact GPU defect.

    P.S. Text contains some mistakes and explanation problems, engrish is hard.

    TL;DR:

    Hi,

    I think I have the same issue, or a similar one.

    My 3080 Strix OC is also not spinning the fans down. With another card it did work.
    But if I force 0% fans with Afterburner, I noticed that the card gets hot, about 65-70C.
    I also noticed, that the power consumption is very high (not less than 70W), even without attached screen.
    Furthermore, the high power consumption is on "8-Pin Power 1"/"PWR_SRC Power Draw". See screenshots.

    Maybe the VRMs are always active, if thats possible?

    I reported it already to the support, waiting for an answer. Maybe another Bios Update could help.

    Hi
    I have the TUF 3080 OC.
    I've just tested 144Hz vs 60Hz refresh rate on idle, the fans don't spin at all.
    My card is undervolted with Afterburner, it may be related? because I know for sure that the fans were spinning on idle when the card was out of the box. Current settings are 825 mV and 1850 Mhz if it can help, maybe give it a try?
    All things considered, fans off or fans spinning slowly, I don't notice the difference regarding the noise, so as long as they don't spin full speed, you should be fine and don't bother.

    A good suggestion. But I've literally set EVERYTHING to 0 or the very minimum setting, temp is 34 0C (or even 27 0C). Side fans are still spinning 53% 1000 RPM.

    The core problem, as I see it, in the fact that right/left fans doesn't react at all to the fan speed setting below 50%. If I set every fan to 30% - middle is fine and does so but side fans has 0 reaction. But smh they do as said if I set rpm to 100%. I can't overheat this thing even if I want to except for manually stopping the fans.

    I have this issue as well.... fans rarely stop and sit around 1000 RPM and 50W or so power draw. Have the first BIOS fix in place... assume we just need to wait for another one?

    Undervolting is a nice idea, but not on idle power state.
    For me, it really seems that the VRMs are not idling as they should. In HWInfo64 I found the VRM temperature reading, and assuming "PWR_SRC Power Draw" from GPU-z is the consumption of the VRMs, it would make sense to me, since the temps are pretty high.

    Now watercooled, the GPU on idle is less than the water temp - so it should be idling correctly. The VRM temp is on idle not less than 40C, also cooled by the GPU waterblock.
    The card itself is working totally fine, getting a score of more than 13100 in Port Royal, so it is hopefully possible to be solved by a bios update - since my power bill would be glad for 30-40W less while being working on my PC.
