Did you try to set fan speed to manually in MSI Afterburner? Try to set manually fan speed curve in MSI Afterburner.

I just installed the new version of msi afterburner and set a fan map, and it fixed it. It must have been an older version causing the hiccup...

Update - Looks like the issue is with MSI afterburner, I lowered the memory clock down to the minimum and the core clock and it stopped.

I have had the exact same issue with my EVGA GTX 770 (02G-P4-2774-KR) for the past few months as well. All driver versions after 344.11 have exhibited this issue. I am currently running the latest driver as well, which is 347.52. The fans continually go from 1320RPM, to 1350, then 1380, and then back down to 1320. It just keeps going up and down - it's quite annoying. My machine is right next to me on the desk and the fans going up and down are quite loud. I don't know what to do - I've tried MSI Afterburner to set a static speed and that doesn't fix it either.

I have tried to fix this by reinstalling windows and have the drivers installed before windows get the chance to install anything but still the same problem. I reinstalled windows and that did not fix it, but the card did behave normaly intill i installed the drivers. I am now using my ATI card even tho it is a older one because i can't believe this is good for the fans on my 770 that they go up and down like this all day. Is nvidia looking in to this?

Zotac GTX 770. Same problem after install 347.25 driver. Reinstall old drivers/ MSI Afterburner not help.

I hope Nvidia acknowledges this and fixes it sometime soon... This is incredibly irritating.

Constant fan cycling is not an across the board issue with GTX770, and it's not a driver problem. It may be some cards, or particular brands have the problem more commonly than others. It could just be a bad fan speed curve, or perhaps a problem in the VBIOS ? This is assuming the cards temps are stable (they usually hit a peak and stay within aoubt 5C of that while under load) and below say, 80C. [s]- If using a fixed fan speed does not stop the fan cycling up and down, I would expect there is a fault, and would be applying for an RMA, or maybe reinstall the VBIOS (but only after getting approval from the mfg when applying for an RMA).[/s] [See Akella's post next page] Cards that have too shallow a fan curve used to be fairly common. Especially those with reference coolers, as the mfg's tried to keep the noise from the turbo fans down. When they hold back too long on ramping the fan speed it will cause the fans cycle up and down when under the load of running a game, but this can generally be fixed by creating a new fan speed profile which uses higher fan speeds at lower temps. Stock cpu coolers often do the same. - My EVGA GTX770's fans were a bit loud, so I set up a fan speed profile as below. These fans start getting a bit too loud after 70%, so I set them to 67% @50C. This keeps the gpu temps in a more 'comfortable' range. The card does not often go over 75C, even with speed only up another 3% @70C, so most of the time the fans are about the same volume as the rest of the system.
