Agree with this. I Googled around and found some other cases of CPU's emitting a coil whine noise. Seems to be the only option left, since everything else has been tried. Try disabling all power saving functions and retest.

Yes I tried that as well.

Take a bamboo chopstick, and lightly touch each component in the suspected area. The sound will stop (or at least change) when you've hit the right point. You can then try some silicone caulk, silly putty, or something else to keep the component from vibrating. Sometimes just wedging a toothpick in helps.
I'd use one of those cardboard fillers for toilet paper and paper towel and search for it with that. It might, just might be your CPU O.O

I can't do that on my gpu. I'm willing to try on my mobo, but I'm unsure if It will get me anywhere. I mean I tried 3 different ones. I doubt they all have coil whine.

It will be difficult to place anything on the inductor since it is usually already covered. (Larger black boxes)

Yes I found that information as well. But mine is abnormally loud. I tried under and overclocked as well as trying different voltages. I also tried taking it out and putting it in turbo mode (setting on the card)
The frequency of the sound always changes depending on the level of the 3d program. For example in bf3, when entering a scene that is more graphically intensive than the last the sound gets louders. If I enter a less grapical area, the tone of the sound changes again.

example.

I tried 3 different boards. 2 of the same model one of a different brand and chipset.

Try one of your friend's CPUs. See if that works.

I assume you mean the graphics card GPU processor and not the onboard gpu. I assume that if my problem lies with the cpu the problem would always be the same. But when I put in the other graphic cards, the sound is only half as loud as as with my GTX 580. I doubt the the processor gets more or less power when using different gpu's.

I am really not sure how the interaction works, but this thread at [H]ard|Forums seems to resemble your problem.

It seems he fixed his problem by turning of the c1 stepping setting in his bios. This doesn't work for me unfortunatly.

I'm going to bed, I've decided to at least RMA my gpu. I'll replace my PSU as well. I'll post back once I have my parts back. In the mean time, if there are any more suggestions, feel free to post them.
