Intel build having issues with Minecraft?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So when I load minecraft, I get a LOUD, and HIGH PITCHED noise. I've never had this sound before, not even when cranking Skyrim to max settings on 1920X1080.
Is this the infamous coil-line noise?
Specs:
i5 2500k
212 EVO cooler
620W Seasonic Power supply (m12II bronze)
7950 TFIII graphics card.

Suonds like it - it is common in situations where you have a very high frame rate (like game menus). Pretty sure I've seen complaints of coil whine with that 7950 version also - might want to search in the GPU forum and see if you can find anything.

Can you tell if it is coming from the video card or the PSU? Often it'll just go away on its own after the card breaks in (so to speak) so if it is a new card you might just wait a little while and see if it helps. Not sure if there is a way to limit the frame rate in Minecraft (or if it even has proper frame rates) but that might help if possible.

If you can find the specific place where the whine is coming from (unfortunately probably impossible since it would be either inside the PSU or under the cooler on the GPU) you might be able to stop it with a blob of glue. That used to work, but I'm not sure if it still works on the coils on new cards.

i don't think glue would work. it might affect the warranty if ever you rma the gpu in the future. but like force said, if it is a new card - break it in and see if the whine goes away.

try the latest 12.11 if you have not done so.
