I heard a strange knocking noise from my card in the first 5 minutes of plugging it in. Noticed that one of the fans kept abruptly stopping (instantly to 0RPM) and starting every 5 seconds. Asked EVGA tech support who told me the card is probably too cool for the fans to start. Researched and found out this card has 0 db cooling (fans won't start until your card temperature rises above 50 degrees). The problem with the fan curve on their card is that the temperature hysteresis value is very low and there's almost no ramp. As soon as the card gets to 51 degrees, the fan starts and instantly stops at 50 degrees and the cycle continues. Now this can be fixed using a software fan curve using EVGA Precision X1 or MSI Afterburner, but having to run an extra application just to avoid this basic design flaw is stupid. EVGA refused to supply a firmware fix for this. I got my first card replaced by Amazon, but the issue persists in the new one - it seems like a design flaw.
I would look for an alternative. If you still insist on getting it - the card performs as advertised and the fans are not very noisy (peak temperature for me playing Division 2 at 4k was roughly 75 degrees). This one design flaw is holding it back from greatness.
