VERY LOUD fan sound at barely 50 degrees (Windforce GTX 1080)

Hey guys!

So I had this Gigabyte Windforce 1080 GPU since november, but recently I started having weird issues. When running 2 games at a time (in this case Battlerite in the background, and was playing some Getting Over It) not really demanding games, I constantly had these waves of fan brutally spinning (I believe it is the GPU). First time it really scared me, in the video it may not sound very loud, but in reality it sounds like it's going to blow up. It's insane, and I really don't know what should I do. As you can see the GPU is not overheated or anything, its temperature is just fine, and I think it shouldn't behave like this. I am really really worried. As soon as I close the game, it completely stops, until I start some games again, then after a little time it starts all over again. But I repeat, NOT every time, which is really confusing...

Here is the video (Sound on please) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5mRL0j3XOM

Any suggestions?

EDIT: I just closed all games, and just started overwatch. Without entering any match, within 2 minutes, the waves of the fan spinning started to come again. Althought I switched to Silent fans in the Gigabyte Gaming Engine. Why the hell is this happening?

I really don't know WTF is going on: https://imgur.com/a/pq4qk
Check that picture out, I hear literally almost nothing right now, everything's normal, although fan speed is 1500 and GPU is at 67 degrees, which is also weird considering only Overwatch is opened in the background, nothing else demanding.

  1. Yeah sounds like something is sending your gpu fan crazy. Do you have both gigabyte gaming engine and MSI afterburner installed? Maybe one or both of these programs are interfearing with the fan curve.

    Yea I have both installed, but MSI wasn't running when I filmed this. Only the Gigabyte software.

    You should only use one or the other.

    Try uninstalling both, rebooting and see if it happens. Then if all is good, reinstall the one you want to use (but not both).

    Really weird, I've been playing with both opened. Nothing happened for hours. I really don't understand. But I will try uninstalling them if you think that it was the software's fault

  5. Yeah I beleive they both use Rivatuner in the background, so a conflict is probably happening, even if they arent both running.

    Oh no, I am pretty sure the Gigabyte software doesn't use rivatuner. It's just a very basic thing.
