Coil whine is a strange one to pin down, I blame it on poor epoxy mounting of components on pcb. If you crack open a pre 1990 piece of gear you will see globs of epoxy on filter caps and related components. I second the cassette tape era I have a three head Nak CR series deck and it still runs today. BTW my relative owns a recording studio and his finest rig is a Nagra open reel digital recorder, amazing sonics. Flat to 10Hz.

Coil whine (for me anyway) was a high pitched sound, I suppose it was a sort of buzz, that got worse overclocked and under load. I can even here it slightly on my new card on those rare occassions it's running 1000s of fps.

You can find alot of deals on these cards now if you don't mind used. I've seen sub $200 390s. Won't xfire though because my psu is 750 and my case could be bigger.

I can't pin point the irritating buzz my psu made before it shut down. I reckoned it to be coil whine except my system shut down completely. Didn't stay running. More a sound of under voltage (brownout) frying. It's running right now and makes me feel tentative about gaming on it.
a while back, I bought a bogus Corsair RM750 (in 2013) from the advice of a friend and I regretted it. Fried up a gpu, cpu and motherboard. Auto temp fan setting were wrong. Got hot and had a hint of that strange electrical burn smell. It had serial numbers that had been recalled before I bought it. Didn't find out till I RMA'd it. I can't understand why Corsair didn't remove the bad ones from retail shelves. Rather than reinstalling it, I gave to a friend.
So I got this XFX XTR 750w made by Seasonic. It's been running 2 years till now. Acts too, like it's going south. So I asked diggiddi if my spare 550w had enough power to push a 390 till I RMA'd the 750w. 550w. Got a 650w at my disposal, too.
I know the 390 & 390x has about a 300w power @top draw but how much can that spike up to? I overclock like everyone else does so I figure the draw to excess. Doing Ultra fps gaming, with 64 nut cases in Battlefiel 4, I'm thinking there's a chance I somehow destroyed this 750 watter.

Yeah, I remember Nagra. They also made a great portable digital recorder that was the love of audiphile world.They gushed with prasie, lol.
What's the name of your relative's studio? Guys like sound men and gophers use to roam from studio to studio. I worked with some guy (can't remember his name anymore) did mix work on jazz guys John Klemmer, Lee Ritenour and Joe Sample. Sorta fun.
I used a huge, cast iron Ampex tub for broadcast editing. It was just big, 4 track R & R, had it's own stand. Studer Revox made a dandy R & R. I think Nakamichi's were king of the hill recorders. It's amazing how they would rise past 21,000 hz. You began hearing the breath of recording halls, night clubs, the slick surface of guitar strings and stand up bass instruments, footsteps prattle around the recording stage, someone whispering for Ned to move his head. It was amazing what a cassette will do. In a good setup it would shine.

On a good quality 750w you could still Xfire just no OC or at most only mem OC but leave core at stock

Really depends on the cpu. I can push out 225 on my r9 390 with ease not even slightly OCed. With my CPU OCed and card at stock im easily pushing 400w, add in ram, HDD, fans, etc etc gets up there easy. Two cards alone are easily 400w. I like to be efficient so i get a psu thats going to be used about 40-50% of my load. Its never good to load a psu past 80% anyways.

Yea he could run xfire at 750w psu but why? What happens if he OCs both lol.

No overclock frown.gif If I was going to run 2 cards I would just get a new case and PSU. You can see my case, it's good for one card. Actually my biggest issue is most of the cables are too long, or have unnecessary extensions. Anyways for 1080p the 1 card does a great job. Looking forward to 4k I'd like to see what the next line of cards has to offer.

Going anything above 1.3v on the R9 390 causes a black screen. Anyone else faced this?

What kind of clocks can you achieve at that voltage?

My normal OC is 1140/1625 @1.325. I can go up to 1180 @1.375. Stock is 1.275. I could push it further but I like to be 100% stable with no artifacts.
