Coil Whine - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
Its whining (high pitch ringing) now & has been for hours, usually when surfing net. To test I click on IMDB.com & guaranteed to start, I think because of adobe flash.. I haven't noticed in games or anything intensive.

Like I say I tried spraying my old PSU which is already voided with a clear laquer today, as I read was a sure remedy (laquer, varnish, nail polish or hot glue). Never worked..

I know if I RMA my new PSU its going to come back & have exactly the same problems.

Like you say Dan maybe changing the GPU is an option, cept is water cooled & cost me enough already.

Its definitely flash player causing the problem, If I disable it no noise atall, tried vsync in Nvidia control panel doesnt make any difference & disabling hardware acceleration.

If I run MSI kombustor I get a very slight weeeee nosie, but nothing like this. OCCT no noise atall.

Very frustrating.

That sounds pretty annoying. The video card would be my prime suspect, sadly.

Supposedly.. people have done this with success:

If, and only if, you can isolate the squealing coil, you can apply clear nail varnish on it and it should quiet it down near zero or completely.

I personally have never tried it, but this blog shows the steps done via picture and results are silence

Seemed to have found the culprit, my SSD, changed for an old drive & no squeel from PSU. Should have checked long ago really.
Hopefully a new SSD will be different, or will have to go back to WD velicoraptor

You say you run something with Flash and it whines?

Sounds like a motherboard or GPU problem rather than a PSU problem.

My laptop whines and screeches like crazy when I turn it on.

I think it's more common to have capacitor whine vs coil whine. Coil whine usually only occurs if the supply is under heavy load. Capacitor whine occurs when there is a bad/failing cap.
