[quote author="Paul"]That is the typical coil whine on these cards, it is very much in all vendor cards as we use the same components.[/quote]
In certain applications it could easily disrupt sleep of someone in the next room and that’s slightly an issue. It’s bouth loud and has a high pitch beyond what i consider normal. Do you have any recomendations on how to bouth monitor and control the GPU directly. AMD Catalyst is a broken piece of software and nothing seems to work on it. (overdrive deletes itself after hitting accept on bouth old and new gpu – for manually controlling fan speed on more demanding games, Forced V-sync doesn’t work and i’m not aware of an FPS limiter in catalyst)
I assume that the whine scales with FPS and not GPU load?
Any other non warranty removing way to tackle this issue?
Thanks for the help and the time invested so far. Coil whine is a completely foreign concept. The old GPU’s Coil whine is barely audiable while in the same game, on the same fps settings, the new one is several times more audiable.
In rome 2 it goes past all boundries and is actually extremely loud. i really can’t put the intensity of the sound into words.
