MSI 7950 RMA

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My Msi Twin Frozr 7950 has started to coil whine slightly. It's not too bad and the sound of the fans on the card usually drowns it out, but what I want to know is how long does it take for an rma to come back on average. If it's something like 3 weeks to a month I can just deal with it but I still would like to RMA it. Any info would be appreciated thanks

Usually 2-3 weeks. But if you own any Crysis game, I would recommend you turn off Vsync, start up Crysis, log in to the menu & leave it running overnight on the menu.......Heard it cures the coil whine.

Here's how to put your rig in your sig:

Thanks. I was debating on leaving it over night to see if it would cure it. Is there a possibility it would just make it worse?

I've had this happen on a few of these cards. I wouldn't worry about it too much. It actually seems to have gotten better now that I think about it, I remember it being worse.

I acutally noticed that too. It used to be really noticable, but not so much now. I'd rather not RMA it especially since it can OC to 1100 core with very minimal voltage tweak
