Strange gpu noise.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, this is a new thread on a strange noise from my gpu. I have a new 5870 and while in idle, there is no strange noises. Anytime that I run a 3d application, I hear a strange sort of ticking noise and it is fairly loud. I looked into coil while but my noise is not consistent like that. It starts immediately when I put any sort of 3d load and stops immediately when I stop it. I have tried running the power from my psu in different configurations and but it doesn't change anything and my psu is fairly new. Also, I tried manually increasing the fan one percent at a time to rule that out. I am wandering what this noise is, any way that I can fix it and if it will be the cause of the card dying in the future. I contacted Sapphire about an RMA but it would take weeks and I would probably receive a used/refurbished gpu which is unacceptable because I purchased a new one. Thank you in advance.

Capicitor squealing? My does it too, and so does most high end GPU's.

did u check to see if anything is hitting ur fan? it tends to rise in rpm as stress increases. also the fan might be bad.

Ah, it's you <.< Made another thread?

Dude, as long as there are no performance issues, there is nothing wrong with the card. Just deal with it unless you wanna RMA it. It won't hurt the card, and even if it does, just RMA it.

Also, I remember my GTX 260 having a ticking noise. I sent it in and they found nothing wrong with the card. Strange noises are to be expected from my experience.

Ok well, it's not the normal capacitor squealing and it's not the fan. I would like a second opinion but if you say it doesn't hurt anything then so be it.
