Hello,

My Sapphire HD7970 Vapor-x makes too much noise, the fans go up too 56%
I can't play with a smile on my face with that noise.
How can I fix this?

A head set :blinky:

Everytime I talk in Teamspeak, people ask me if I have a jet in my room. But it's just my pc. I know, the jet sounds cooler  :glasses:

I've an idea, remove tin-plate on computer sides, that'll do better air circulation. It was same for me, now It's okay. (At least one side)

I'm not a fan of this solution, incident risk is pretty high! It can with some models improve things, on cases with internal case fans to get circulation? I found it to be negligable/making things worse, the main reason to not want any open computer cases here is one hell of a curious cat that likes investigating devices and things that change, pick random locations to be and... spread cat hair. Statically charged components + cat hair is a bad combination.

But depending on the model of computer case you have check if you can attach case fans, having two in there (or more) would be idea. One to suck air in and another to blow it out, most quality cases should have this. Considering you're posting the issue here I'm not going to recommend water cooling as it's relatively tricky to handle safely but it's a pretty good solution if you wish to avoid noise and with the right kit can achieve a very good cooling allowing for a nice amount of overclocking with little noise.

So yea, as the guy above said get some better circulation going however you can. Headsets are also good for avoiding the teamspeak complaints because unlike a desk microphone it'll be right next to your mouth picking up less background sounds relative to your voice. Another thing that could help is getting the room temperature down, fan in the window (while it's colder outside than in your room!) or airco if you have the option.

My computer has 3 big fans, two in the front and one in the back.
Tommorow my new cpu cooler will arrive, it's a be quiet dark rock pro 2.
Wil my airflow be better with my new cooler then with my old stock cooler?

case airflow: no
cpu cooling: quite possibly
gpu cooling: no difference

I'm confused though? You ordered a new... CPU fan when the GPU is the one causing noise?

Yeah for some overclocking.
Maybe it's normal that a Sapphire HD7970 Vapor-x makes much noise?

Complaing about noise and overclocking, whats your point?

If you'd read up, teamspeak and background noise is the issue in his case.

@OP
Since you can see the fan speed I'm sure the sensor tool also shows the GPU temperature, is it running extremely hot? There are utilities that allow you to manually control the fan speed, now lowering the fan speed will obviously make the temperature of your GPU go up with all the potential stability and durability consequences that come with it. (Most people get such utilities to force it to 100%)

Things you can consider to "remedy" the noise, move the PC case further away from your desk (and microphone). HDMI/DVI/VGA/mouse/keyboard cables are typically long enough to do this, put some distance between the microphone and the noise source and things should be fine. Alternatively consider getting a headset, that way the microphone is closer to your head and relative volume of other sources will be negligible compared to your voice.

Sounds like someones fan is broken or unbalanced.
You can also look if there is to much dust blocking the airflow.

My gpu stays between 59-62 degrees while i'm playing wot.
Are there any programms which set max temp to 70-75 degrees then I should have less noise.

1: For a Radeon HD7900 series this temperature goal is within it's operational tolerance based on what about these cards and what is started in general in the thread below. Couldn't however easily find a detailed specification on AMDs own site about these values, it's probably out there but I just don't like their site nor am I going to put much effort into googling around or browsing through that pile of crap site.

http://hardforum.com...d.php?t=1671355

I've never looked for any or used them myself and therefore I won't suggest any without knowing if they are reliable or not. That said it should be out there based on a quick google search which yielded me the URL below (I REPEAT: Didn't use it MYSELF and therefore will not GUARANTEE IT IS SAFE).

hi m8
I have same 7970 vapor-x
fan speed on game about 45-50% what settings you set up?

i don't know what's happening, but his game take very much pc resource :/

I am going to sell this card on ebay, this card is shit.
I want a nvidia 780 or titan!

You just need to do a spring clean inside your case and maximize airflow.
  • Ensure that the rear of the case is not pushed up to close to a wall.
  • Tie back all cables and make sure they don't disrupt the airflow.
  • Cold air in the front - Hot air out the back/top
  • Leave space between expansion cards if possible.
I use an Antec 900 and have 2 x 120mm fans on the front dragging cold air across the HDD's and SSD.
Another 120mm on the rear pulling heat off the 2 Graphics cards. And a 200mm fast moving but silent top fan, extracting heat from the entire case.

I put a side intake fan on but my temps increased slightly, because it disrupted the natural in/out flow. So that was dumped.

this company make awesome coolers!!!!
id always go for what they sell first.

if you go for a new card, id still fit the cooler these guys make for it!!!
