Hardware combos to reduce coil whine?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I received my EVGA GTX1080 FTW yesterday and installed it. It is getting coilwhine, im not sure if its a fault with the GPU or another component in my system causing the gpu to whine. The sound is coming from the gpu, I moved my PSU out of the case to make sure. My old Gigabyte Gtx 970 G1 also had the same sounding coil whine.

The whine happens in any benchmark or game.
If I go into ati tool and click 3D View, it is extremely loud.
If someone has this card, do you mind testing to see if yours does the same thing?

Unless I got unlucky with both cards, is it at all possible that my motherboard or PSU could cause the GPU to whine? I have herd different hardware combos can counter it. I am getting a new motherboard and cpu when the next gen cpus are out. But saying that, is there a PSU that plays well with the 1080 ftw without whine?

You cannot really reduce the loud coil whine ones but its very possible to you did get 2 cards with coil whine and its the gpu's. Just keep RMA'ing or try another company until you get one without it! Coil whine is just terrible especially the whine that has 2 tones that type of coil whine makes you want to throw your gpu out. My previous card had obnoxious coil whine and now I got a card without it and my ears/mind are peaceful now. I was exactly in your position with the 970 and just lived with it thinking it was some other component causing the horrible whine and it was 100% that card since my new Zotac 1070 does not have this issue at all and my rig is silent now.
