GTX 680 buzzing noise under load after installing water cooling...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
this is driving me nuts, and I don't even know if it's my fault. I just bought a custom loop, installed it, did everything right, just the way it's supposed to be. For some reason the card just makes this weird buzzing noise I can't explain whenever it goes to full load. For example while running MSI kombustor it can start buzzing, but the buzz is inconsistent. It can be a silent buzz, and then buzz harder, then back to silent buzz. This is driving me crazy, and I don't know if I can RMA it now since I installed a waterblock on it (XSPC Razor GTX 680 new style).... Could it be my fault? If I installed it wrong? Temps are amazing, steady at less than 50C at full load with 1241 core and 7000 memory. I just don't know what to do. Any help, or advice would be much obliged.

I think you are experiencing Coil Whine:

I think with the stock cooler/fan the noise of the fan was louder then the coil whine,
and now you have more silent cooling, and now you can hear the coil whine.

Allot of GPU's have this issue and there are only 2 things you can do about it:

1. RMA the card and hope you get one that doesnt have it/ or not as bad

2. Download a frame limiter program, and limit the frams the refresh rate of your monitor.
Ussualy coil whine comes when you are in main menu of games, and pushing 1000+fps
