Coil whine while benching with Unigine Heaven 4.0?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
At first I thought it was my GTX 980 Kingpin drawing soo much power that it was producing coil whine. I tested 2 other GPUs; a GTX 690 and GTX 760, both have coil whine.

Anyone else getting this coil whine while running Unigine Heaven? I'm in a quiet room and any coil whine is audible. I also switched between two PSUs. I changed PCI-E slots to make sure it wasn't a bad connection producing a chirp.


EDIT:
Just tested a GTX 580 on a whole different setup and still getting a whine. Different mobo, PSU, ETC.

I'm assuming all GPUs are going to have coil whine running it at max. I just called EVGA and guy told me since all the voltage is going through it, it produces a high pitched whine that is hard to hear; his GTX 970 also has a whine and told me to burn in the video cards +8 hours running Unigine Heaven.
