MSI R9 280X coil whine ?

#1Xemnas999Posted 11/23/2013 6:13:09 PM
This is my PC;
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=209425&action=wish_lists

And I am experiencing noticable coil whine AFTER installing my new GPU, I had a HD 6670 which ran perfectly, no coil whine, I just installed my new 280X, everything is fully functional but that coil whine is quite annoying. Does anyone have any experience with this card ? Can anyone offer any advice ?

Help is much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Most parts in a PC can suffer from coil whine, email MSI's support team to see if you can get it repaired/replaced.

The only reason I believe it to be the GPU is because I recently installed it (2 days ago) and I am now noticing it.

I read somewhere that if you open the menu of a game (with v-sync off) and let it run overnight at ~2000fps (which should give max coil whine) it can fix it ? Can anyone verify this ?

No, you have to pepper it with Malaysian beach salt to fuse the RG negative ions together which contribute to coil whine, then pray to Vishnuu for two fortnights.

Yes, it's a known issue (look up 7970 coil whine).
No, there's nothing much you can do about it without decreasing your card's performance (but that's not always guaranteed fix, either).

This is what I found,

First post does say that leaving it on for an extended period of time can fix.
