Why is my Predator BiFrost Arc A770 video card making more noise after driver updates?
If you have updated the Intel driver of your Predator BiFrost Arc A770 OC Graphic Card to version PR19 (184.108.40.20644), you might be experiencing abnormal fan speeds and more noise coming from your graphic card fan.
Normal sounds from heatsink
Most graphic cards are designed with a heat sink fan. A heat sink fan pulls away heat from the graphic card processor when your computer is running heavy processes. It is completely normal for the spinning fan blades to produce some sound.
However, the new driver version forces the fan to continuously fluctuate between a low and high number of rotations per minute (RPM) when the graphics card is in idle mode, resulting in abnormal fan speed and more noise coming from the fan.
If you are experiencing more noise coming from your Predator BiFrost Arc A770 OC Graphic Card after you have updated the Intel driver to version PR19 (220.127.116.1144), you need to update your Intel driver to version PR20 (18.104.22.16824).
