ATI 7950 Buzzing? - Page 2

I opened my case while the card was buzzing and tried to check where the sound was coming from. I lifted the card gently and the noise stopped. I figured the problem was something between the heatsink, shroud and fans. So I just decided to re-seat the card and reapply a better TIM as I wasn't too happy with my temps too. After reapplying TIM and re-seating the heatsink, the noise went away and my temps dropped by more than 20c. So my advice is to try to re-seat your heatsink and replace the TIM on your 7950 if you can. Maybe that will fix your problem; not really 100% sure if it will fix the buzzing noise, but its worth doing it.

I've never done anything like that before, i'm scared i might mess something up.

Capacitor squeal is normal on high end cards. My 670s have it. That is no squeal... RMA time. I have no idea what that is.

Damn, i really dont feel like submitting a RMA. If its coil whine, then i'll just live with it. like i said i can only hear it if i put my ears up close to the gpu.

i just wanted to make sure it wasn't something else that could potentially kill my card anytime soon. i upgrade the gpu almost yearly so..

Exact same card as mines, same noise. Mines isn't as loud though, only heard up close like a couple inches away. a foot back and you cant hear it.

Hello, i have a terrible coil whine with two Gigabyte 7950. A little backround: Got my first one at the beggining of March, at first i couldn't pinpoint where the noise was coming from considering i had my speakers on and a noisy case. At the begining of May i got a new case (Define R4) and i started hearing the card. I asked amazon for a replacement and they send one right away. My first card was a Rev 1.0 (6+6 power pin connectors). The second was a Rev 2.0 (8+6 pins). The coil whine was the same if not worse. I'm using the second card in the video but the first makes the exact same noise.

Sounds almost like mine. Looks like we have to live with this coil whine
