I suppose I am use to my 0db mode. Yes ok some exaggeration But very noticeable for someone who is has a silent house and is a silent pc fanatic. Plus an advertised feature of the card no longer works. I have now rolled back to 18.12.1 and silence has been restored. It was very apparent when the old driver kicked back in and the fans switched off. I doubt I’m the only one who values this feature they have paid for and if it no longer works on the latest drivers it’s maybe RMA time. @Dicehunter I used to have the strix 1080 and yes that was a great cooler and very quiet. The Saphire pulse isn’t as quiet imo.
