"When play the game , fan start to spin with high RPM. The noise sounds like coil whine , so I thought it was coil whine and ignore the sounds. Last night the noise got worse so check the card , and the sounds came from the LED cover. When I press the LED cover noise disappear. So it seems the fan may contact the LED cover on high RPM. For me it happen when card is under load so fan start spin. Around 70% of fan speed is makes the noise. I found the left fan makes the sound for me(to find out I have stop the fan with my finger)."
"I noticed the same issue on my 3090 Strix OC last night too.
I can replicate it 100% of the time by just turning up the fan speed with the card at idle. It seems loudest for me at about 65% and the middle fan seems to cause it more.
Pushing on the lightbar doesn't make it go away completely but does decrease the sound significantly. Unlike in your video it decreases the vibration sound when I push on the lightbar on the right hand side (power plug end) of the lightbar about a third of the way along. Pushing where you did does nothing for me.
In all other respects the card works fine it's just a ****ty design/QC."
The quality of ASUS products is good, its just the customer support that is horrible. Look at this thread and the statements from them... basically nothing...
But this has been the case for many years.
I love the performance, the temps are good and the quality of the product is almost great. But to let something like this out of the factory and do nothing about it afterwards is a complete joke.
No matter how good the product is, if they continue like this why are people still supporting them. Would you buy another car from a dealership if something is broken from day one and they basically ignore you...Amazon is the size it is because they put the customer first. ASUS should take notes
My third 3090 Strix OC card just arrived (second replacement), this one is even worse, what the hell.
Im honestly so happy to get a MSI Suprim X 3090 as a replacement, no issues what so ever, its cooler, runs quieter and can finally play games without worrying about some buzzing that all eventually occur. It also gets higher clocks than the Strix OC at a much lower voltage (out of the box).
Its sad to hear the experiences people have the Strix cards, they look really nice but QC is just terrible, myself, getting 2 cards that are screwed, and that one from the other day where the shroud was hanging off.
And seeing MrHDR with 3 defective cards. It's just not good enough, only people that seem to get good cards are reviewers who get priority over us getting what we paid for.
I am seeing people with 3080's and 3070's also with the same issue, 3070's less due to not reaching those temps anyway due to the TDP so fans never ramp up that high.*
I'm just considering asking the retailer i got mine from for a Suprim X too, i've only had problems with these Strix 3090 since late last year, it's a real shame because i really like Strix products.
