GTX 1080 Ti coil whine? - Page 6

post #51 of 76
That's very interesting if the retailer is saying that allot of 1080Ti's have this coil whine issue. I have my 3rd card on its way from evga, will see if it's any better.

I think my ears just may be shot. I buy a couple of cards everytime Nvidia releases the "cheap" big GPU, and ive never heard coil whine. It's probably in the same frequency range as my Tinnitus thumb.gif. I've gone from reference 780's to 980 Ti G1 Gaming cards to MSI Armor 1080ti's and havent ever heard any. I guess Tinnitus is good for something! Coil whine sounds like something that would drive me insane if I could actually hear it.

This is my first card to have coil whine at playable frames.

My 980ti strictly only gets coil whine when I used to play the Division... most likely because it's the most demanding game I threw at it... My game volume overpowers it so it's not really an issue for me.

The main question after RMA is the following - how to choose another 1080 Ti card without noticeable coil whine?

Which manufacturers are famous for having no coil whine problems?

Which 1080 Ti model to choose?

Please help.

I quess your best bet is an aftermarket version with better components, I have never had luck with reference cards, all of em coilwhined, some aftermaket ones did not, maybe just a bogus theory.

So I've got 2 Strix 1080 Ti's for SLI and both of them had same whine, so maybe it's just a bad batch. But after taking them to the store for refund they tested it and claim there was no coil whine. So for now I am waiting to test them on different PSU in my friend's rig.
I tested at home with 2 PSUs, but both are same lineup Supernova P2 (1200 & 650) so maybe different PSU brand will decrease it or eliminate whine.
If not I guess I will suck up restocking fees (as I don't like dealing with Asus RMA) and wait for EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 to release. Only reason I got Asus was to have Aura support since the rest of my rig is Aura compatible.
I've heard from technician in store that 1080 Ti's are common with coil whine, better chance with 1080s.
Also logically with OC cards coil whine is much more louder, I've heard people say there is no coil whine on non OC editions of Strix.

My 980 Ti's had coil whine and I really hoped to get rid of it when upgrading:

So for now until I wait to test my Asus GPUs with Corsair PSU I decided to pre-order EVGA FTW3 ones. I kinda like that they are 2 slot cards and this will work better in SLI in terms of temps, until I can get water blocks. And probably will be easier to sell in the future

I just got my MSI 1080ti Sea Hawk X and it whines, I have never had any issues with my previous cards (last one was 980ti Hybrid) so even under water they are whining, this is so dissapoiting considering they cost $700+.

Now what to do, MSI removed the link of the sea hawk x so they discontinued them already? Return and get an air cooled one or stick and deal with the noise which sucks because I built my system with quietness in mind.

I've decided to return my Strix OC ones, I tested in multiple machines and noticed when running in 4K whine was more quiet
Anyway, one of the reasons I returned it is that EK water block for Striix is a bit weird with shiny metal plate over the vrms. I prefer reference and FTW2 style blocks.
Also as I mentioned before for at least a month I am gonna run them on air and with 2.5 slot cards they get toasty.
So I am waiting for two EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 instead for more sensors and being 2 slot card, hopefully will get them by end of next week. And if they whine I guess I will have to live with it.

I had coil whine problems, until I decided to slap a 1300w overkill PSU. Usually and most likely power supplies are the reason for the coil whine so, maybe try out a
