That would be Coil Whine.

And as annoying as it is, it's normal. :|

There's no coils on a volterra 6950 card, since it's got digitally controlled vrms.


OP, you've got noise from your psu. Either hit the caps/coils with a hot glue gun or swap it out.

You sure?
Search Google and there are other users who have coil whine on their 6950s.

Coil whine is when parts, this being the coils and caps too, in a psu vibrate under load. The 6950 reference card doesn't have any coils because it uses digitally controlled vrms, no coils!

I definitely hear some whine from my card while folding a core 16 work unit.

Yes, from the GPU - not the PSU.
