Silencer Mk II had some really good reviews, good price, and a 7 year warranty. Also, US company, and I have heard good things about their customer support and RMA service. I would almost prefer my PSU to need replacing versus my GPU, since Asus doesn't have great customer support.

Nope. I only asked out of curiosity. rolleyes.gif

Its probably coil whine from either the PSU or the motherboard or the GPU. If you can find where its coming from just lightly coat the coil in nail polish and it'll stop it from screeching

My 470 whines pretty good when I fold it OC'd as well (I have a third party cooler on it too) when I fold... I mean F@H is pretty demanding. Some cards get it, some don't, I'd say that's the end of the story, really.

But it also does it when I underclock my GPU. Not all the way down to Afterburner's lower limit, but very close, just like 40 clicks above it.

I've had 6 different 570's over the past 2 years....2 of them whined. It didn't matter what clock they were at, the whine was present. Just the higher the overclock, the higher pitched the whine.

Hi, I had a gtx 285 from gigabyte and it use to have coil whine.
I sent it in for RMA and they fixed it.
Loved the fact that I did it.
My ears thank me everyday (they tingle happily every morning when I ask them are you thankful that I got rid of the coil whine.)
