A few months ago, I made the decision to upgrade my PC and invested in a new RTX 4070 TI, expecting it to effortlessly handle a decade-old game like Euro Truck Simulator 2.

The game ran incredibly smoothly, but there was an unexpected downside... The noise.

My PC sounded almost as loud as an actual truck. Fans on the GPU were working like CRAZY.

I was wondering why the problem has occurred on a brand-new, high-performance GPU. It was working great, even in more demanding games.

And then I found it: the game was trying to render as many frames as possible. This is also the reason why it was even louder when I was entering the menu.

The solution is simple

  1. Hit ESC to enter the Menu.
  2. Go to Options -> Graphics
  3. Turn on the Vertical Synchronization.

For me "Economic" works best. My PC is quiet, and I still don't experience any major FPS drops.

If it didn't fix your problem:

  1. Try to lower the Refresh Rate.
  2. Turn on the Vertical Synchronization in your GPU menu.
  3. Update your GPU drivers.
  4. Lower your graphical settings.
  5. Disable mods.
