My 7970 has a slight squeal or whine, whatever you want to call it when I start a game or benchmark. It seems to be common with this series of cards.

its the oc edition
the strang thing is that noise sound go higher if the frame rate is above 40 and more higher above 60 but down to 30 frame rate you can barely hear it no matter if the gpu use is 99% or 10%

it dont matter if you oc it or not its about frame rate

60 you can hear it
30 little sound
above 60 annoying but you can play if you raise up the spekr

its most likely just the VRM's or caps like kevinf said. nothing to worry about.

at stock clocks my 570 produces the same sounds kinda like cap squeal/whine/buzz but not very audible but when it is OC'd to 900/1800/2100 @1.1v then it is loud enough at full load to be heard over my headphones but it is safe

You haven't really described the sound. Does it whine? Could it be rattling? Could it be the fans? High pitched?

Perfect example of how poor Tapatalk is. Apologies.. Sounds like rattling i think? Have you looked in the fan?
