[Official] AMD R9 Radeon FURY / NANO / X / Pro DUO FIJI Owners Club - Page 457

post #4561 of 11585
So I happened to snag one of the XFX R9 Fury cards to test out, they seem to have a slightly different power delivery system so I was hoping for something with less coil whine than either of my reference PCB Sapphire cards. Nope. This card is now the coil whine champion, louder than both of the others put together. I couldn't even tolerate a single run of 3Dmark before I removed it from my system and put it back in the box.

Lock it into anot her room for 24hrs of 3DMark. It should help fix that. If not it may be that your GPU doesn't play well with your PSU.

DAMN this die is such a work of art. I could stare at it all day. wubsmiley.gif





MSI HD6850 power edition with Fury. Barts and Fiji.

Yes Fury X size is perfect for mATX boards.
I can't remember better configuration for smaller RIGs than Fury X CF with water blocks only single slot cards.
Even Sound Blaster Z is probably same thickness as Fury X with EKWB waterblock.

Nope, not doing it. I've had enough man, I tried. I really did. I don't give a crap about trying to work it out of the card, its going back and I'm done with Fiji forever. This is the third card with the same issues. I have 5 systems at my disposal with all different makes and models of power supply and motherboard, it doesn't make a lick of difference which one I put them in. The VRM design on these cards is garbage and lends itself to excessive whine, and I won't tolerate it just to support AMD. Maybe I'll get a 390X, performance is close enough and it won't have to be Nvidia.

The above pic explains a lot why you cannot simply drop a GPU cooler on these new cards. Look at the size of that die. eek.gif

I don't know what to tell you man. Either you have the worst luck with getting whiny cards or there is something else causing that coil whine for you like dirty power or the PSU not cooperating with you.

I think the few people here that don't have whine are the lucky ones.

Well I can't blame you if you're wiping your hands of it. You gave it several tries.

This Sapphire is 99% coil whine free. The only time i hear any is when exiting out of Valley benchmark. Gaming, running 3dmark 2013 and the valley benchmark itself have 0 coil whine.

Not to be a jerk, but trying to escape coil whine is almost impossible at the high end and enthusiast tiers of GPU's. My 780's, 670's, 7950, 7970, 290s, 290x's, Fury/Fury X, 970s, and single 980 have all had some form of coil whine. Sure some are worse than others, but like I've explained in this thread and one or two others numerous times, there are WAY to many factors to solely blame one thing or the other.

Continuously buying cards in the hopes of getting a brand or make without coil whine isn't a good idea. If it really bothers someone that much, take the time to do the research as to why the phenomenon occurs and see what factors you can change to help reduce the issue; sound proofing, checking for dirty power in both the psu and house, make sure apartment/house is properly grounded, no large magnets near your pc, learning about the quality and make of chokes specific gpu models come with, how heat/voltage effect the frequency and pitch of the noise and finding optimal voltages within thermal tolerances that can help reduce the noise, and so on...

I personally got really hung-up over coil whine on one of my cards (cant remember specifically which one) and did ridiculous things, I even found the one socket in the whole damn house that wasn't grounded properly was the one my pc was running from and even worse that when the front foundation was exposed for waterproofing the workers never replaced the grounding rod for the entire house after digging out the old one rolleyes.gif. Once I really invested myself into understanding why it was happening, it became clear there are so many things you cannot control that can influence coil whine. Long story short, don't burn yourself out over one thing.
