Asus GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP awful strange sound.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a strange/very annoying sound from what I believe to be one/both the new GPUs I installed in my system. The sounds wasn't there when I was running the GTX 280.
Do these cards make a strange noise when idle? The sound comes and goes but its constant when the PC idles. For example while booting I can't hear it, if I open 3dmark11 it goes away for a few seconds then comes back, I open up nvidia 3d vision it goes away.

Changing the fan speed with SmartDoctor doesn't help.

The cards are brand new and I have inspected them fully, nothing looks wrong.

Here is a sound clip I took with my iphone: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=WU1JJYVB its an m4a file.
Not sure if you can hear it properly if you got a loud PC but the sound is very distracting and its making me avoid the computer frown.gif

Edit: It always does it while at the desktop, it goes away completely if I'm in a game, then comes back when I quit it.

I can't play m4a's at work, but is it a buzzing, a squealing or a clicking?

Squealing = capacitors are squealing. This is common, pull the shroud off and paint clear nail polish around the base of all the components.
Clicking = bad fan. Try oiling the inside of the hub of the fan and see if it goes away. If not, RMA to get a new one if you can.
Buzzing = I have no idea, never seen one sure-fire way to fix this so it can be any number of things.

Try and turn off 2D mode on your graphics card (using RivaTuner) and see if it still does it. This will make it run hotter at idle but won't affect the overall performance of the card. This is similar to turning off speed stepping on a CPU.

I was playing Skyrim for a while just there just to test out that annoying sound.
It does not do it at all while running that.
Back to the desktop now and so far it has not come back, fingers crossed but it has only been like 5 mins.

Man that sound is soo annoying, I'm this close to throwing the tower out the window.

I did a prime95 test and as soon as the test starts the annoying sound goes away then goes back when the test stops.

Thought it might be the cpu fan but I opened the case and stopped it with my hand. Sound still on then.
Can it be the PSU fan? Just bought a new Corsair AX850 but the fan on that only spins when it has to. Sound is there when that fan is stopped.
mad.gif so annoyed.

Is your PSU possibly REV:A1W and the s/n starts with R1108B7? If that is the case then you can be almost sure its the PSU buzzing. RMA that piece of **** and get a new one, im currently 1 and a half week into the RMA process with my AX850...

Yeah I kind of ruled out everything else it seems. But would it do that annoying sound even when the fan is not spinning?
Does it take a few days to burn in or thats like that for ever?
and also yes SN: R1108B7... and REV: A1W
son of a *****

Do you think asking for a different REV will fix that?
I will follow up with you when you get your replacement, or just drop me a PM and let me know if the new one works fine and what REV it is.

Its not the fan, its a capacitor vibrating or something like that. And it wont burn in, I gave mine 10 days hoping it would go away at some point, it didnt. RMA is the only solution.

Yeah just kicked off the RMA with Amazon and when I told them to send me new revision they didn't know what I was talking about so I dont have high hopes they will send me one which doesnt do this.
If the new one does the same thing might just go for the AX750, my bro has one in his pc and it's fine. Can't believe they would put stuff like this on the market.

go through Corsair directly if you can instead of Amazon. Corsair will send you a newer unit. Amazon will just replace it with whatever else they have their regardless of Rev.

Ugh they already said a replacement is on the way so I guess going to have to wait for that and hope for the best. If not send it to corsair.
