Strange Sound from card

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello. I just realized that when i have a game open a strange sound is coming from the card and it is synchronized with the fps. For example, in crysis editor, if i have 1 fps and image change one time per second i have the sound made every time picture changes. I don't know what it is, but it is like electricity. What could it be?

Could also be coil whine coming from the psu. This happens to me only upon heavy gaming as well.

Some cards make these "electrical" high-pitched sounds. My old HD5850 did it when playing some games.

Many people are experiencing the sounds are decreasing with time. Unfortunately it varies and some people have to wait up to years and the more fortunate and lucky get rid of it within months.

If you're too annoyed with it try and hearing out your retailer for a RMA.

I hope it helped you mate! Good luck!
