    Question Why my GTX 1080 Ti runs hot under no load ?

    I just bought a used 1080Ti and noticed under full load it was reaching temperatures of high 70s using the normal fan curve, so I created a more aggressive one with the fans at about 75% to keep it to low 70s. That's fine but the fans are pretty loud at this level. To test the heat dissipation...

    [SOLVED] Audio crackling with high load (possibly temperature related?)

    My PC has had this issue for a long time (maybe since I built it) but I haven't bothered much to fix it because it is controllable and only happens under high loads. It is controllable because I am able to mitigate it pretty well just by letting the fans go full speed which leads me to believe...
