I imagine if you just manually set the fans to a really high speed and leave them there you could get the same result without loading the card at all.

Yeah it just wears the chokes some which reduces the noise.

I thought I read in the Fiji thread that some were not having any luck doing that with their Fury cards though?

It isn't panacea, but it works in some cases for some cards.

Huh I didn't realize you could make it stay at the credits screen, because whenever I choose to exit it stays on the credits screen for about 5 seconds then exist. How do you do it exactly? I too noticed that it gives as you say "nice 4k FPS blastage" and represents the absolute worse case scenario for coil whine.

Usually I just let the card rip on Watch Dogs main menu since it runs 300-500 FPS and also gives a good buzz. But man if this Unigine trick worked I probably could've saved myself a few RMAs lol.

I'm quite sure that I can stay at the credits screen until I press another key to close out completely.

There's coil whine and then there's Fury Nano coil whine.

This is the first card where I've experienced a variable pitch in sound at vsynced framerates. No other cards I have owned did this. All I can say is that it behaves differently from all previous cards that have whined. My worst card with coil whine before the Nano was the Asus Strix 970 but it's not nearly as bad as you can control the pitch via locking of framerates. I likely just got a bad sample like the reviewers and that's why I issued the RMA but I'll try putting the card under stress (this has reduced some of the whine in prior cards like the 970 Strixx, but it never totally eliminates it) overnight tonight to see if it helps but I doubt it'll help this sample.

It would be good to hear from others' who own retail cards, if they also notice the variable pitch in coil whine even at static framerates. Borderlands 2 works great as a test.

I think 3 sold worldwide so it might take a while.

Hah, you may be right but I think AMD finally has fixed the yield issues. I do see the regular Fury X is in stock again for the same price as the Nano.

a fruy x overclocked 100 on core shows little real world fps gain, a 980 ti with 100 core (tho its capable of much more compared to fury) shows noticeable fps gains.


i know that isnt your point, im just not sure why people are still defending amd at this point, 980 ti beats fury x at stock and costs the same. and overclocks a helluva lot better...

Well, it doesn't really beat the Fury X at stock at high resolutions. Takes a pretty big OC to beat it iirc...

You are searching through forums for mention of GTX 970 coil whine, a card thats been out for a year and sold millions of cards. I can do the same with 7970 or any card and post a long list here as well.

There is something seriously wrong with R9 Nano. That wasnt the case with 7970.
Thats the difference.

Doesn't mean those cards didn't have valid coil whine. All GPUs coil whine no matter the size and power profile. Most of the noise is just masked by fans and other hardware. Because Nano has only one fan and is small there is nothing to dampen it's noise. If they used more VRMs and Mosfets it would've reduced some of the noise as well.

People shouldn't buy a GPU because it makes no noise, because that's theoretically impossible.
