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. --- Laptop - i7 2670QM | 8GB DDR3 RAM | GT 540M 2GB Desktop - i5 4670K | 8GB DDR3 RAM | R9 280X 3GB

Most parts in a PC can suffer from coil whine, email MSI's support team to see if you can get it repaired/replaced. --- I think I'm the only person on gamefaqs with a daughterboard - ToastyOne New with a moderation history more plentiful than karma. - Fossil (Moderator)

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 ? --- Laptop - i7 2670QM | 8GB DDR3 RAM | GT 540M 2GB Desktop - i5 4670K | 8GB DDR3 RAM | R9 280X 3GB

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. --- Why are you always smiling? 'Cause it's all so f***in' hysterical.

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). --- Copyright free literature available at http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page... otherwise known as Tex-Mex
