Hi there. I just have a question regarding my Gigabyte RTX 3060Ti Eagle OC. In some heavy games (CoD Cold War for example), I noticed that, after match while returning to menu, when card doesn´t need to render that much on scene, getting queiter, cooler, and jumping easily by 10degrees down straighaway. But what I can hear is very annoying "click sound".
See link for video, that I attached from other guy on forum here. Same click happens to me:

He also had same "issue" with different cards in the past.

Did test on my pc and need to point few things:
  1. stress test ran for nearly 24hrs, temps. max 68 degrees in full 100percent load, no artefacts at all
  2. card fully works, without any issue. even better than I expected lol
  3. click sound occur only while in heavy loads. more specificly - when card getting "out of heavy load". it also happened straight when i finished manually stress test mentioned.
It looks to me, as card has semi-passive coolers, which aren´t working at all unless under 50percent load, card just simply forcing and stopping fans. and then click sound occurs.

I tried to find any solution, and wasn´t succesfull.

Thanks so much for any relative replies and help. Much appreciated.

Hi. Yes, only click itself as you can hear on video attached from other guy. Exactly same one. We realised it's definitely relay, and it have to come from psu. Which may make sense, becaj

because RM PSU's are well know by this. Also with my new components comsumption went well down, so I bet it just try to save energy and stoping the fan on psu. And then click occurs (my opinion)

I just ordered be Quiet! Straight Power 11 80Plus Platinum. Clicks started to appear even while in Windows only now. Not really often, bud it did few times. Even otherwise PC works completely fine, I bet it must be PSU then, slowly "dying". Lets see in a couple of days. If I just did not waste 160 pounds xDDD
