Though as a precaution since you have a DVI port. Make sure you have backup monitor cables around so just in case the FTW3 takes out a monitor port that you have a way to get visuals up again. As always you do this at your own risk.

thank you for this, flash the ftw3 bios and the card clocks are much more stable now, have it working great at 2050mhz and +550 oc on the memory clocks. temperatures does not get past 43c (room temp 20c)

was afraid of one of these comments smile.gif didn't bother to thoroughly clean prior to installing the sea hawk, however a full cleaning and detailing is due this weekend...

I went with the EK X version, it's amazing. Card doesn't get higher than 42c on full load at stock speeds. Now to OC. smile.gif

Could you point to link/thread regarding flashing FTW3 BIOS for this card? I assume this would be safe enough to use another manufacturer bios?

Think your pc needs a clean before anything. So much dust ppl gonna mistake it for a dyson

Hey B0nn1n,

Check out this video of mine. I just got my warranty replacement card today, and can confirm the warranty replacement is making the EXACT SAME noise. I'm so angry frown.gif

Anyone experience the same issue?

If your warranty card is making the same noise, the fault is not your card.

It is likely to be either your house AC power is dirty, your PSU is not filtering ripple properly or your Mobo.
Electrical resonance in any of those circuits can induce coil whine in even the best designed cards.

If you cannot do anything about the power delivery, you can deal with the coil whine by aggressively padding down the coils against something hard.

I agree with dasboogieman. PSU's that are on their way out, or don't perform/measure very well to begin with will increase coil whine noise. A buddy of mine had an old HX750, and his card had really bad coil whine as low as 60fps. We changed over to an EVGA Supernova, and it went away. Cleaning your case out might reduce whine even more tongue.gif
