Hello everyone, I have this problem ... I do not know if it 's my idea ... but yesterday I put a flashlight on the central fan of my strix 1080ti I am quick to say that or turn slower or' crooked .... this with a speed of 44% ... if I put the fans at maximum have no problem .... the card is new and I have never touched anything.
Looking at the center of the fan it is normal that it seems slower because the logo is different from the other two ... I mean the edge of the fan.
It seems to work because temperatures are good (58 ° in benchmark)
I am attaching a video can you help me? Is it really wrong according to you?
not all three fans spin at the same speed all the time. Your Cards Bios has it's own build in algorithm that makes the fans spin. Where the card needs more cooling, the fan wil spin faster. It controls all three fans seperately. BUT it can only monitor the first Fan and the information in monitoring software wil only be the RPM of the first fan. This will also normally be the first fan to spin up under load AND the one spinning the fastest.
Any techies out there correct me if i'm wrong of course 🙂
the problem is that if you look at the fan at the point I indicate in the picture ... and compare it with the other fan ... this seems to tremble ....
Sounds like your card/fans are working as designed, the "crooked" or out of balance look is probably either a sticker on the center of the fan that is not centered or an optical allusion created from the light, if it was crooked or out of balance you would know from vibration and noise
you should just use your finger and touch and see if it's actually crooked.
nature gave you a damn fine sensory tool (hand, finger), just be careful when using it to measure it.
then you'll know for sure if it wobbles, no?
side rant: i've fixed gpus that sound like a broken helicopter with some precision screwdrivers, a little bending, and a bottle of lube.
heck, even WD40 works.
^ don't do the above if your card is still under warranty. just saying it here because it's possible, only taking a little bit of ingenuity and guts.
