Strange noise from GTX 770

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a MSI GTX 770 Gaming and it makes a strange noise. It doesn't sound like coil whine to me, more of a clicking. I also don't think its the fans as it makes the exact same noise regardless of fan speeds. However, it does seem directly related to load, the higher the clock speed the louder it gets.

See the below video for the noise, if you listen carefully you can hear towards the end where it transitions from high load -> low load -> high light again.

Should I be concerned? Also, do you think I should post this in the MSI forum as well?

Ofc you should be concerned. this is far from normal. MSI cards always had this problem. i think its the coil. as you said it becomes louder when its under load. thus when it gets hotter and fans run faster.. Tell it to MSI or open it up yourself and check it.

I've heard coil whine before and it sounds completely different. And I said it gets louder under load and that it's NOT the fans. Has anyone heard this noise before?

I had the same problem with my 4GB MSI 770 Gaming, I went back to the store and they swapped out for a Lightning. No problems with it so far.

Did they say anything about what the noise actually was? I bought mine on amazon, I hope MSI will cross ship. =(
