Got some coil whine out of the blue - worried or nothing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I booted the rig up this afternoon and was doing some light browsing when I noticed this really high pitched sound coming from the box. I originally thought it was my H100i pump as I had that issue with it when I first got it and it went away. I thought crap maybe it came back. Low and behold after some google searching and tinkering with my box that it is coming from the graphics card itself. I have been doing some overclocking on the card lately, but nothing to extreme. I did some searching and found a lot of people had this issue. The weird thing is they have it in games, not on the desktop. When I loaded games the coil whine would go away. I did a reboot and the coil whine went away - now I am good to go. Anyone have this issue or heard of this issue before? Should I be worried?

79XX cards frequently have coil whine. Sometimes it's random, like only audible in certain game menus. I can only hear coil whine while folding or in the credits screen of unigine benches. Nothing to worry about.

Word. I read a post somewhere that said this lowers the life expectancy of the card. True or false?

I've never heard that before, no idea if there is any truth to it, but I wouldn't think so.
