Just like the Founders Edition, the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Suprim X has fan stop, which is ideal for keeping system noise levels low outside of gaming as the fans shut down completely.
Gaming noise levels with the default (silent) BIOS are outstanding, substantially quieter than the ASUS TUF with Quiet BIOS enabled, and that was the quietest RTX 3080 we had tested so far. Unbelievable, I wouldn't have thought such low noise output would be possible with that much performance. Temperatures are fine, too, with 77°C. Should you want lower temperatures, switch to the "Gaming" BIOS, which runs the fans at higher speed. It will give you 67°C, lower than most RTX 3080 cards, at noise levels that are still a little bit better than those of the NVIDIA Founders Edition.
