    Hey all

    since release of the 1080Ti i have had one of these
    AORUS GeForceĀ® GTX 1080 Ti 11G
    https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Graphics-Card/GV-N108TAORUS-11GD#kf


    The temperatures/noise have never been great but acceptable,
    average between 70c-74c @ 1440/4K with 1500rpm on likes of Sleeping dogs GTA etc

    however lately the card is getting louder and temperatures have average rose to 73-78C with 2500rpm! its also pulling 325W
    I've cleaned the card out and not much at all dust in their.
    the card has 3 bequiet 120MM gently blowing cool air on to it at 500RPM

    i'm considering what to replace this card with as i want a quiet system
    (current loudest thing is my water pump..)
    what are your thoughts? 1080ti/2080ti? 2080?

    Might need to replace the TIM. Why not water cool your pc if you want silence ?

    Maybe your fans a that low it's not moving the heat out of your case so your GPU is heating up? See what it's like with side door off.

    If you have water-cooling can you not get a block for it and add it to the system? If not then I would try reapplying the TIM as has been said. It'll give you a good reson to strip the card and give it a good clean and hopefully will sort it.

    It's winter now so temps should have gone down over the last few months not up..
