AORUS RTX 2080TI Gaming Box Fan Revving

I purchased the eGPU back in January. And it's been revving for a few months. Something that comes as too high of a load, for example, trying to run VR or something like Final Fantasy XIV, the fans rev up from around 1050RPM to closer to 2950RPM in the snap of your fingers. This has been an issue on both laptops I have (though I've been having more issues with the Lenovo, either gonna make another post for that, or two birds for one stone with this one.)

I've had it set on Auto Scan for some times in terms of GPU Boost from Gigabyte's AORUS Engine. Memory clock hasn't been touched, fan speed (RPM) I tried on auto, manual, and custom modes, all were the same. Power target I stuck at 100% while target temperature I stuck at 65C. The weird thing is, it didn't do this before. The first time I had this revving issue, I thought "Oh set the target temperature lower. That'll be fine."

Then it keeps happening. I'm unsure as to why. If anyone could lend a hand on this, that'd be really helpful.

Should also mention that I haven't tried to tear this down or replace the fans or anything. Just stumped on what to do from here.

 

Edit: Checking in task manager GPU usage is around 50% or so while running FFXIV with no FPS cap. Refresh rate on my monitor is 165Hz. While in a controlled environment, it was getting around 187 FPS. Putting it down to 1/2 refresh rate (Around 82FPS cap) brought it down 30% GPU usage. Yet it still rises to about 65C hitting the temperature cap and causing the fans rev wildly. Though when alt tabbing it jumps to 50% usage and...the temperature drops to around 40C. This is a heck of a problem I did not...really expect to be encountering. At all.

@nick_thomas, AORUS Engine is buggy in my experience. Have you tried running the RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box without AORUS Engine?

@itsage, Uninstall Aorus Engine and try using something else? Think I should try using the MSI stuff?

 

Also another update, game hit 0FPS when playing it through a boss. So...that's concerning! Should I downgrade my drivers as well?

@nick_thomas, Don't use any tuning software. Run DDU to uninstall the current GeForce drivers and install the latest version.

@itsage, I'm assuming the ones not found via GeForce Experience. Correct?

Installed the ones directly from Nvidia's site, along with not installing Geforce Experience. That, and haven't touched anything on the control panel for Nvidia. Should I try doing preferred graphics processor and power management mode to high performance nvidia processor and prefer maximum performance respectively?

@itsage GPU clock around 1650MHz when playing again, and even without AORUS engine running, moreso without it installed, the fan throttled at 65C. GPU usage was around 80%. Memory was stuck at 14000MHz while playing as well. 

Though after trying to reinstall AORUS Engine and checking the power usage...it was pulling over the power target...Around 103% sometimes.

And afterwards, trying to drag power target percentage down to 70 seemed like a temporary fix. But I want to know if there's anything else I should be worried about at this point. Do I need to clean things out?

@nick_thomas, I don't use manual settings in AORUS Engine (or any utility) so I can't provide much help there. The only spot I noticed dust build-up is the fan exhaust vents on the front right side of the enclosure. You can take the top and side panels off for a quick clean and visual inspection.

@itsage, Well, just went out to grab a can of compressed air and tried to clean it out...amongst other things for my PC. It seems to be running smoother now, though I haven't tried to bring the temperature back up to normal yet.

@itsage After a few days of testing this out, I set the power draw to be lower than...well, 100%. Moreso down to around  With that it helped bring the average GPU temperature down significantly. Which helped in keeping the fans from revving up once again. 

 

Now that that's solved...onto make a new post about why the Lenovo I have isn't...working properly for lack of better words. Error code 43 keeps popping up. That and I think 31 was also doing so. Causing the eGPU (doesn't matter if it was the 2070 or 2080) to disconnect from the system. I'll go back and look at that.
