I have a first world problem with my new card, a KFA2 Geforce GTX 1070, that is driving me insane: The fans start and stop all the time, producing a grating noise. Many newer Nvidia cards have a silent mode that will stop the fans on the card completely at low temps. Only if the temperature of the GPU rises above a certain treshold the fans will start up, the idea being that the card will be quiet in 2D mode. Unfortunately in my ventilated case the temperature hovers right around that treshold while gaming as well. This causes the fans to start up for a second or two and then slowing down again, producing a grating noise everytime they start up. Ironically I cannot hear the fans spinning at the lowest setting over the background hum the computer produces anyway. Is there any way to turn this feature off? I don't really mind having the fans spin all the time, if they stay in silent mode.
