    Not all fans spin on idle for GTX Asus 1080 STRIX OC Edition

    This is my videocard:

    Greetings,



    First of all, I know that when the computer is idle or not working hard, all 3 fans don't spin. I noticed a few things with the fan. When the computer is not on a heavy load or semi idling (Watching streams or youtube videos or surfing the web):

    I noticed only 2 of the 3 fans were spinning. So I fired up 3dmark Firestrike, and the last fan finally kicked in after a few seconds of running Firestrike.

    Another time, I saw only 1 of 3 fans spinning. I did the same thing and ran the 3dmark Firestrike benchmark test, and then the other two fans started spinning.

    And finally, another time, I saw all 3 fans stopping, then spinning again, then stopping and spinning again. And it did this while I was watching it for like 30-40 seconds


    So my question is, is this normal? Or do I need to return this GPU and get a replacement or buy a different card all together?




    EDIT: I forgot to mention the weather here is hot during the summer if this information will help.

    Thanks for the reply and help! So the way I described the fans working is normal? I always thought all 3 fans would stop if it wasn't under light load, instead of 1 or 2 just stopping. So no need to return my card? It runs pretty cool when under heavy load which is impressive. I was just worried that not all the fans spin at the same time. Let me know. Thanks!
