Asus Radeon 7990 Coil whine help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello every1

i just recieved my radeon 7990 the other day with my new computer and i was extremely happy its rund without a problem idle but as soon as i start a benchmark or a game its starts coil whining like a B'tch....

ive searched everywhere on the net to see if i can fix it before i have to RMA it to the retailer in germany (i live in denmark)

i've tried the folowing:

1. Running MSI AB with "constant voltage" enabled - doesnt help.

2. tried to overvolt and OC it to the max and run Benchmarks - doesnt help either.

3. im currently trying to run the card with both things and benchmarking it for 3 days in row which some2 have tried and it fxed it.


i really wanna avoid RMA if there is something i can fix it by exept taking the card apart and drilling in the VRM's which some people have done...

any advice is very welcome! smile.gif

are you sure it is coil whine and not interference with your audio? i had an issue where i could hear a whine when i moved windows around, but it turned out to be interference with my onboard audio, and went away after a week of using my computer (it was coming through the speakers)

Ye i'm positiv, i've run the card on another motherboard and it does the same thing, and this only happens when i run a game or a benchmark.
but afte ri have run the card with MSI AB on costant voltage and maximum OC for 30 hours the coil whine lowers a bit but as soon as i turn the rig off and let it cool off, its back on maximum whine again!

but i have now sent it back to the reseller and getting send a new one, that HOPEFULLY doesnt have this issue! thumb.gif
