Description

Upgraded from an old 3570k. Getting ready for big game releases. Using for gaming. Used a 580 gfx card before going for 5700XT. The 580 was very quiet and was ok in most games. The 5700XT is a good card, however compared the 580 it gets very hot and very loud. Will look into maybe getting some better case cooling.

Edit: I think it may be the CPU cooler making the noise not the Gigabyte 5700XT. I have tried to turn down the CPU cooler fan speed to see if it makes a difference when playing games.

Also added 3 new pics. Opened the top of case and use the included mesh grille top hopefully keep some heat down when playing long game sessions.

Edit: Added some more pics. Also pics of the monitor as I think it deserves a mention, very impressed with it. Only issue is it could do with a USB port on it for putting up a webcam or quickly charging a mobile phone, but it's not a major issue.

What you should do is added more case fans if the graphic get hot because that isnt normal mine is whisper quiet and I got the same one

Thanks, which case do you have? as maybe your case is quieter than mine? Also have you done anything with the Gigabyte software (I think it's called Aorus engine) to make it run quieter? I changed mine to "customized".

Actually you know what, I think it's the cpu cooler making the noise. I'm such an idiot haha.

Thanks, yes I think you are right. It must be the CPU cooler. Yes I heard the stock coolers are loud.

it's not expected from the Gaming OC, that means it need more airflow, I've watched many reviews of it, all of them said it's a cool and quiet card.

could be also your room temp.

Yes I am not sure why, it certainly isn't what I expected. Room temp is usually around 18c-21c.

Any issues with your RAM speed reverting to 2133 on boot? Seems a lot of people have had that issue with the Gigabyte motherboards. Some have said a BIOS update fixes it, others have said they had to disable or uninstall RGB Fusion software.

I have no idea. When viewing CPU speed in MSI afterburner and running games I am consistently getting 4.325ghz - 4.375ghz. So not sure if that helps?

Edit: Also I am on the up to date BIOS. F10a AGESA 1.0.0.4B

Not sure what you mean. Do you mean the Gigabyte 5700XT compared to other 5700XT's? as it isn't as overclocked as say the Red Devil and Sapphire Nitro+; if so its really only about 2-3fps less, but apparently uses less power so hopefully last longer and therefore also creates less heat although the cooler and fans aren't as good as the other 2.

Or do you mean why didn't I get a 1660/2060/2070/2080/2080ti and all the many super variants? Mainly the price and "value for money".
