Though there have been extreme cases where the whine just keeps getting worse and worse.

In any case, it's good to hear that the skyn3t bios helped out with the coil whine!

Really weird, but when I would OC my 4770K to 4.3ghz, and have my reference 780 at 1100mhz core, I would experience a weird coil whine while "only" (yes only) playing Guild wars 2 while viewing a Vista. I was running a evga 650 gold psu, and upgraded to a 1kW platinum seasonic and that issue ceased to exist immediately. Having both a 780 ti and my Galaxy running full bore mining, I can put my face next to my 900d's open side and can't hear anything, but the sound of about 20 fans spinning biggrin.gif

Gigabyte is sending me a new 780 ti, I plan on selling that and matching the 780 Hof I have now with a twin brother, might throw a prolimatech mk 26 on there that I have lying around extra.

I can't hear a thing, even with my ear against it.

Heck can't even hear the whine of Kingdoms of Amalur.

It did push the temps up a bit from 65/66c to 69/70c, but I might replace the NZXT fans with some high flow Noctua's.

Though I heard back from where I bought the card, they have tested 3, 2 Buzzed one didn't, they offered me to return it and they will give me the pre-tested one if mine is proven faulty.

The seller you have is very nice to pre-test things! Heck, might as well take him up on his offer!

As for replacing the fans, the Noctua's are a bit over rated for the price if you ask me. If you have be-quiet in AU , I suggest you get them. They're a tad bit cheaper than Noctua, are more silent and push more air.

EDIT:
As for the X60, why not try to run your setup without it first and see if the buzz lessens or disappears? I'm a bit of an OC myself and I sure as hell would check all my components one at a time! Lol! biggrin.gif

Yours is a different story, the PSU was obviously the one causing the whine since when you placed your components under load the whine would increase. There have been reports of the EVGA PSUs (and it's OEM -Aurum - more budget PSUs) having issues with quality, especially the 1500W units (though this is a different OEM).

http://www.overclock.net/t/1319523/evga-evga-supernova-nex750-and-nex650-power-supplies/0_20

EVGA for me is very good with GPUs; but when it comes to their other items like motherboards, PSUs and even cases, their quality seems lacking! I wish they would compete better with Corsair when it comes to having other items that are quality (SSDs, Cases, PSUs, etc.) aside from just having awesome GPUs.

I just have to pay for postage back, got a RMA number and will post it in the morning.

I've tried without the Kraken connected to power and motherboard, buzz is still there.
Can't hurt to send it back, if they don't find anything wrong with the card its a $25 fee, but I guess its still worth it to at least double check.

But they did find 2 cards buzz, but these are the HOF not HOF+.

Well I'll know next week for sure..

I Just bought from couple of days the Galaxy GTX 780 Hof i had problem with dropping core boost clock from 1097mhz to 683mhz it was problem from the shipped bios i updated the new bios from the official galaxytech.com which is fixed the issue and now the core boost stays at 1097mhz , Now my main problem that the maximum core voltage is 1.187v (only when i push the Hyper Boost Button on the card) what i have to do to reach 1.2v as i saw with other HOF they already reached 1.2v which is official, is that a graphic card issue or bios ...???? My current bios which is officially updated from Galaxy website is 80.80.21.00.5F and the GPU Rev B1 (Copied from GPU-Z 0.7.8)

Sorry guys if my English is bad and also i am a newbie so please i wait for your advice guys, Thank you.


My Specs:

Galaxy GTX 780 HOF 3GB GPU
Asus P8Z77-V Pro Motherboard
Intel Core i7 3770K Processor
G.Skill 16GB(4x4) 1600MHZ DDR3 Ram
XFX 850W XXX EDITION Silver Certificate PSU

There is 2 skyn3t bios rev.4 for the Galaxy GTX 780 HOF but i dont know what to choose (sky-vBios-HOF-rev4) or (sky-780-HOF-B1.rom) or which bios revision is better for overclocking from your experience guys? when to Flash bios do it through dos or Ez3flash tool from windows? what the best way i mean the safest? if its from windows should i Uninstall nvidia driver first?

Try and use PrecisionX (you can set the voltage to 1.212 mV) and see what your load voltage is, then report back.

You need tyo use GPU-Z and see what it says in "Revision", if it says A1 use the rev. 4; if it says B1, use the B1.rom

First i want to thank you for ur reply and trying to help...

with stock bios 80.80.21.005F on GK110 Rev B1 and with Power target to the maximum as well as the voltage 63mV with EVGA PrecisionX i was able to reach maximum 1.187v only when i push the hyper boost button i am cap to 1.187v only

with skyn3t BIOS 80.80.21.005C i was able to reach the max which is 1.212mV and be stable with 1306mhz but with artifacts ,it was the same result with stock bios but with 1.187v

I suggest you use the skyn3t BIOS then, it seems more stable in terms of voltage!

I'm also using the skyn3t bios for the HOF 780 Ti!

EDIT:

If you want a constant voltage, use the K-Boost feature under voltage in PrecisionX. It will hold whatever voltage you set as per occamrazer and skyn3t.

For the Galaxy cards I would defiantly use skyn3t bios.
You notice a big difference to overclocking and average benchmark scores.

You get consistent score, where running stock they'd be all over the place.
That makes for some steady overclocking.

When mine comes back from RMA its the first thing I'll be doing again.. thumb.gif
