I was able to get the coil whine under control. The rome 2 total war was rendering at 350 frames per second and with third party fps limiting tools (msi afterburner) it’s working within my expectations on 75 FPS.
The 2nd question is the weird temperature reading in GPU-Z. Since the main issue has been solved i don’t feel like i need an RMA but i do want to know whether overheating voltage regulators could significantly reduce the GPU lifespan.
The GPU temperature is significantly cooler than voltage regulator 1 reading in GPU-Z by about 10+ degrees. Similarly Voltage regulator 2 is also significantly cooler.
Should i constrain my use to absolutely limit the voltage regulator temperature to 95 degrees or is it fine if i simply ignore that and aim at a reasonable GPU temperature of 85 degrees under full load. (which may or may not overheat the voltage regulator beyond 95 degrees)
I’ve already made my own, modified fan speed curve which starts off slower but rises much faster to compensate.
