What games have high, uncapped frames?

I am trying to see how much coil whine I have in my system, it seems I need a game with really high frames to get the whine going, as it stands with furmark at 30-60 FPS there is no noise.

I guess anything that stresses your GPU 100%.

Can't you just manually turn up your GPU fans to 100% in the driver?

Just download PrecisionX or Afterburner and set your fan to whatever you think it needs to be set to and let it run for a minute, no need to stress your gpu.

I got pretty noticeable coil whine while running the Windows Experience Index test.

Unless I'm mistaken, it's not the fans that cause the coil whine, it's the induction coils on the card itself.

Well, then any graphically intensive benchmark would be able to do it.
