Hello to everyone 

I have a problem since yersteday with my aorus box 3080 wich was working fine.

As i began to play on my xps 9700, fps started to drop drastically. Tuched my box , it was running very hot without adapting the fan speed . Then i exit the game , and checked temp: Over 86 degrees which never hapenned before( was more like 50–60 degrees in game) .

tried to unplug, and restart : same. Then made ddu driver uninstall, reinstalled drivers, still no adaptation of the fan speed .

reinstalled bios of my xps, thunderbolt driver and application, no success.

tried to check via afterburner : no reaction to manual changes of the fan speed nor curve.

And it was all of a sudden, just since yersteday pluging . The temps were fine before.

tried the reset Button. No changes.

i tried to flash the aorus box bios, hoping this Will Fix the problem , but the utilitary downloaded from gigabyte says « can t recognize bios version » and stops. Aorus engine can tell it’s the F1 version .( so i downloaded the matching version on the support page ).

i guess this is a software problem but i’m oit of ideas.

i’d like to flash the bios with the f1 version , just to « reset » the box , but i don’t know Where to find it and how to do this ... 

 

so i’m stuck with a black boiler, unable to play anymore, as it reaches 85 degrees in à Few minutes...

can anybody help me please?

@papoose02, Open the side panels and check the fan connections to the mainboard. When I took apart the RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box to review, the fan connector wasn't fully connected to the mainboard header and I experienced the same issue you described. When the fans are working normally, temps should run no higher than low 60s.

@itsage

unbelivable. You were right, one of the fans had been magically disconnected.

checking temps now

@papoose02, I'm glad to hear. The water cooling system in these Gaming Boxes is actually very good except for loose fan connectors.

by the way do you think it’s worth updating the bios or not ? (F1 to f4)

@papoose02, I haven't done any firmware updates. You can give it a try to see if there's improvement.
