My new PC is only three months old, never had an issue until a few days ago. I have CPUz and GPUz and HWM installed. No spike in temp for either CPU or GPU but consistently every minute while playing ESO, the fan will ramp up. Have not tried with other games, been too busy.

Have you tried DDU or applying a custom fan curve to combat this problem?

I did try DDU as per your suggestion, in safe mode even. I thought it was fixed for a while but it only made it less frequent. Turning off Nvidia game optimizations made it even less frequent (every 5 mins or so). Just to test, I dropped my Ultra settings down to High settings for ESO and it happens about every 10 mins now. I am more than willing to get used to it but my concern is that it indicates an underlying issue because I seem to be able to manipulate it with game settings . I also tested it out in Minecraft Bedrock (no addons) and it still happens pretty consistently. Again, only while gaming and never climbing above 85°C, but the fan hits 6K when RPM ramps up.
