[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 205

post #2041 of 7827
I've got the lightning card. But it makes some grinding noise, i think it's a fan, or the VRM's. Or it's just it's nature. My PSU is not the problem, i think it can handle the Lightning (Seasonic X-760).


The noise, it's some type of half-cricket sound. And it's the card, not some other fans. The card has no overclock. Here is the GPU-Z

You got it, nice!
Only things I can think of for the cricket-like noise would be the fan wires routed through the heatsink (under the heatpipes), one bit might be making contact with the fan as it spins, hopefully not in the fan itself since you can't really do much about that.

Could be the audio card ? I've heard it could be some issues on video cards, because of audio cards "signals" or "interferences".

Hmm, i'd take the shroud off and take a look. Its probably something simple causing it, although it sucks that its happening to your new card. (you need a tube of TIM handy)

Don't think its audio related.

Remove the plastic cap and check the seating on the GPU reactor. Make sure it is securely seated.

Might be a stupid question... Why aren't you using afterburner? No interest in overvoltage?

Small update on the blocks smile.gif

Gary said that Shoggy told him that the blocks will have an ETA of 1 week. So if all goes good I think we can expect the first blocks to start arriving within 2-3 weeks.

Another reminder that the special OCN discount only applies till Saturday. After pre orders close you will have to pay normal retail price if you want one of these blocks wink.gif

I think Shoggy will also be posting some pictures of the block mounted on a real card tonight as well. I'll repost it here when he posts it

Hmm, now seems the grinding/cricket sound inside my card to disappear. Not all, but i think it's a little less now. I've checked the card by eye, and i don't have some fan cable blocking the fans to rotate, or other strange objects in the heatsink. I guess i've got a noisy (VRM, PCB stuff) card. But at least the performance is GREAT !!

I just purchased one of these for $650, i hope it's worth it and nothing is wrong with it. Does anyone think i overpayed?
What motherboard should i get to go with it? I'll have an i5 3570k with a h100 cooler in a aerocool x-predator full tower case. =]
