I'm just starting to notice a strange sound coming from my computer while playing SWTOR.
There is a strange sound that goes up in pitch when the GPU has to process more. For example. If I am in first person view in the game the sound is very low, then when I zoom all the way out the sounds pitch gets higher and louder. While using the front audio jack on the tower the sound transmits into my mic and people on Teamspeak can hear it. But it does not transmit when using the rear audio inputs.
I am a bit worried my graphics card has something wrong with it. Its a Nividia GeFOrce GTX570, I installed it about 4 to 5 months ago in my first computer I have ever built. Which was from an old HP pavilion from 2008.
Has anyone ever had this problem or heard this sound?
