Question Upgraded to a Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Windforce; one of the fans continously runs at max speed

Mar 22, 2020
So I recently upgraded to a Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Windforce OC from my RX 480. I had been pretty happy with my RX 5700 XT which was the same model from Gigabyte, but I returned that a few days ago. I used DDU before I installed the 2070 Super, so I don't think AMD drivers are causing any issues. I tried Quake 2 RTX, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Overwatch. They all run pretty well, with temps at 80C for Quake 2 and RDR2, and 60C for Overwatch. However, one of the GPU fans continue to run at max speed continuously after exiting a game, regardless of temperature. This is extremely bothersome and makes my computer sound like a vacuum cleaner. Any assistance would be appreciated.

GPU: Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Windforce OC
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 (stock cooler)
RAM: 2 Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 @ 2400MHz
Monitor: AOC G2460PF @ 144hz, 1080p (Freesync)
