Whining from gpu

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My brother just built a cheap setup and he got a used GTX 285 for pretty cheap..the thing is when the card is under any stressful load it makes a high pitch whining noise that gets louder with heavier loads..in games its just louder then the case fans and using 3dmark it gets really loud. Is this normal? I have never had a card do anything like this.

Does he have the proper power supply cables going into the card?

Like said above chances are its a coil whine and you will need to ring up the company who made it and see if they will fix or replace it for him
post #9 of 10
as far as I am aware the whine comes from the card itself drawing power and there not being enough. I would try to switch up the cables to see if one of the pins are the culprit (one pin being bad that is) besides that you can attempt to overclock the card as that has been known to get rid of whine or try a different PSU

Just wanna mention as the guys above said it could be coil whine too

Phadreus2129 posted fixes for this not that long ago. You might wanna check it out:
