Looking for an answer of whats going on with my 290X

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Not sure if the super loud coil whine is to blame but im having issues.. Playing BF3 at 1680x1050 on ultra and also tryed medium settings my fps keep going from 150fps to 40.. im pretty sure its not heat related cause the temps never go above 75c with the fan profile i have set.. (In this picture below i tried using default fan settings too.) VRM's sit around 60~70c

now on gpu tweak my gpu usage is all over the place, but looking at gpuz it shows my gpu isnt downclocking.. When using furmark it works just fine cpu usage is at 100%, no downclocking and never go's above 94c on default settings... using latest drivers and a fresh install of windows.

heres and example..


Im going to prolly rma the card in a week or so because of the coilwhine anyways. Im also going to try out BF4 when its done downloading and see if it does the same thing.

I'll try anything to get it to work right, i really dont think a coil whine is going to cause this?

How bad is the coil whine? Have you tried overclocking the card then letting it sit running heaven for about 3-4 hours? Somtimes that helps getting rid of it. Coil whine is a common issue on high end cards however...

May be its your PSU?? Make sure the power connections are tight
OT: why are you running such a beast of a card on 1050p screen.

Coil whine is annoying. Here's another thread where the member fixed it by overclocking and letting the thing run 3-4 hours of Heaven Ungine.

GTX 780 Coil Whine

Guess if your going to RMA anyway it can't hurt it.

Will be getting a new monitor soon, sometime around xmas.. Just looking to see what ones are best and if anything new comes out in the next month and a half... figured id just let things run at over 120 fps on ultra till then.

I will try the heaven bench.. How much should i oc it and should i do a high fan profile or leave it on auto and let the card get hot to help correct it

Any ideas as to why the cpu %ages flucuate so much... Been playin bf4 and its not near as bad as bf3 but ist still there alittle, It doesnt drop to 0% like bf3 does.. Prolly drivers...

Like i said im going to play with the card for a week or so and if that whine dont go away ill send it back.. Just gonna wait till more cards come in anyways... No reason to send it back untill i can get one sent to me that same day..
