GPU clicking?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I was gaming this afternoon and noticed a clicking coming from my computer. I opened my case and it sounds like it is coming from the graphics card. When I have the game up, I hear the clicking. When I tab out of the game and go back to the desktop the clicking stops. I have a watercooled gtx 295. I am not seeing any strange temps or artifacts. The clicking occurs whether I have the overclock set or not. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Johnnyfive

Maybe you have something inside the block? But thats very unlikely so i dont think its the gpu

I would think that if something were in the block then it would click all the time. Water speed doesn't change and it only clicks when in game.

I'm not sure how I would tell that was happening. Anything to look for?
