  • So i have finally almost gotten through with all of my issues with my new computer, but this last one has been going on since i got it a week ago. That issue is i hear a buzzing noise that is coming from my GPU. However, im not sure if it is its fans or if it is just a coil whine.


    The buzz only seems to happen when gaming and turning up my manual fan speed, but only awhile after turning up my fan speed the sound goes away. On the other hand, when i game it doesnt eventually sllt which leads me to believe that it is a coil whine and not an issue with my fan, but im no expert at this so im not sure.

    If you need me to describe the noise more feel free to ask. I just need to know if cojl has to do with my fans though so i can RMA it if i must. Also, my temperatures are all fine. Reply With Quote. I sent it in for an RMA, I got it back without any form of coil whine.

    Basically every card has coil whine which is normal but it's just mostly not audible. If the wlot is between - it's audible but depends on age, above 20K it isn't. So should i RMA it and get a new one? I use headphones, so i dont hear it at all, so sound isnt an issue.

    Im just worried about it breaking. Coil whine doesn't pci there's anything wrong and to some extent is "normal". It can get much louder with time as I've found so if it's bothering you now I'd probably try and replace it. I just returned a PSU that had horrific coil whine and bought a different one that is dead silent.

    No issue really.

     · After that I removed the video card to a different PCI-E slot and it also exhibited the same behavior. I removed the discrete video card completely and switched to Intel HD graphics. That eliminated the issue completely. I've read that coil whine is common for video cards so I guess I will just live with it since it's relatively faint.  · The coil whine is an audible pop with each frame as the power circuitry sends it's voltage to the gpu parts that need it. The higher the fps, the more you'll hear that pop until it goes from a low rumble to a buzzing bee to a screaming half-crushed rat at + fps, to downright deafening at ~fps.  · Posted July 13, There are likely to be inductors near the PCIe connector so it probably is just plain old coil whine. It can be pretty hard for our ears to pinpoint at such high frequencies. Router: iU appliance running pfSense WiFi: Honor Router 3 (~Mbit peak throughput).

Higher power parts are slightly more likely to coil whine by nature especially when pushed. Buying a sound card sometimes helps, especially if unplugging your speakers seems to whhine it it can come through speakers, or come out of the case physically itself.

    Coil whine, or is it coming from my fans?

    The coil whine is an audible pop with each frame as the power circuitry sends it's voltage to the gpu parts that need it. Any pcir with a good pciw of power circuitry in it power supply, motherboard, video card, normally but not always limited to these 3 items can cause it. One Ti might do it and the other not, one motherboard might do it and the other not so much, one power supply might magnify existing coil whine or lessen it vs others.

    Some people never hear it. Are you sure it's not coming from the GPU? You could put a frame rate limiter on, which could help. Why do you not want to do that, is it affecting in-game? It's switching noise from VRMs on the graphics card. It may vary between cards or even power supplies, but likely is also down to motherboard design.

    You might be able to filter coiil out with some cleverly placed capacitors but as it's audible frequencies, you run the risk of also attenuating treble from your audio signal. As mentioned, a discrete sound card of some kind will likely sort it.

    That's just mobo's integrated sound card being EMI magnet. Without own dedicated PCB it's lot harder to keep interference out. Changing headphones won't solve it. Unless it's fixed voltage EMI induced into output traces, in which case higher impedance headphones needing higher signal voltage lower volume of interference compared to actual sound xlot.
