Pretty sure my new Gigabyte GTX 1080 is busted

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Video of the problem: https://youtu.be/blhh_bsLV4w

Basically the card is SUPER loud and there's a very audible whine when GPU usage is high.

Is this a known issue? Anything I could try at home to fix it or should I just RMA?

At 1:33 you answered your own question. It's coil whine. Not a big deal and it will go away soon.

What you can try is find a game what has super high fps in menu. I thing Crysis 2 or 3 has this. Leave the card there for 2-3 hours and see if it fixes the problem. Always had to do this with new card expectantly under water since its the only thing you hear.

Its coil whine, you think thats bad? Should have heard it on the 970's when they came out, I had to go through 4 different ones until I found one that didnt have it... Basically, your card is fine
post #8 of 9
That's the first I'm hearing about coil whine on a 1080. Mine is 100% dead silent with my ear nearly against it. My 980 classified whined a little bit but my 6970 would absolutely scream. Hopefully this doesn't become a common problem. It seems like I have read an article or watched a video where Nvidia as bragging about how hard they worked to completely obsolete coin whine in there cards and that the 1080 would have none at all. I may be wrong tho, it may have been one of the AIB partners saying that about their cards.

I had coil whine on my GTX980Ti.. fixed it by getting a good UPS that cleans up the power output to a clean 60Hz sinewave.
The inducer coils on your graphics card are there to clean up input power going to the GPU. So if your house, apartment, ect.. has really noisy power you'll get more noise of the coils. My card was pretty noisy until I put my PC on a UPS.


Also your power supply can make a huge difference as it's converting AC Power to DC Power... if your power supply is of poor quality it can introduce a lot of ripple into the DC current. Also this depends on the AC input from the wall, so again a UPS is highly recommended!!


This Corsair RM750 review shows ripple test:

Even the best power supplies will have some ripple, but you definitely want to minimize it.
