run it for a long duration (around 8 - 10 hrs) in an app like 3dmark where coil whine is most. sometimes the coil whine goes away on its own. also try vsync in games. at times it can reduce coil whine

Just taking a shot here. Bump up the voltage or lower the voltage

you mean to say just a loaded game screen. that might not be enough. run a benchmark like 3dmark or heaven in a loop and leave it overnight. the other option is try vsync in games. lastly if its really bothersome you might have to try RMA. but the problem is there is no guarantee that the next one will not have coil whine. sucks. mad.gif

Yeah I left a game running over night sleeping dogs playing this game gives me the loud whine noise that's why I left it on this game...I tried lower higher the voltage and no effect.
