I wouldn't advise doing that.

If you don't know what you're doing you can do more harm then good.

Try to test the card with a different power supply. I had coil wine for a year but once i switched the PSU on my old rig it disappeared.

I see, but what would be the issue? Nail polish isn't conductive right? And those four capacitors i can spot out as clear as day.

Don't put nail polish on it, the nail polish trick only works if you have those coils where you can see the copper wire loop around this Circle thing lol, if you do it on those coils shown in that picture, you won't even affect it at all_

Similar to a previous poster, I had a PSU that was whining when the gfx card would display white on screen. I thought it was the card until I upgraded the PSU and the sound was gone.

There aint much you can do, my GTX 560 ti has the same whine noise_

It usually goes away with V-sync or goes away after a good minute or so, I only really experience the whining noise when my GPU is under really heavy loads like benchmarking_ Most games are minor whining_

I believe those black Square blocks are called Chokes?

Well to kinda help rid the noise, I say find yourself some thermal tape or something that will absorb the sound coming off them_

Completely cover them with thermal tape and hope that does the trick? I don't know lol, its a suggestion since Thermal tape seems to be soft enough to help absorb sound without hindering cooling performance for those things_ Its like sound proofing_

set max fps to your refresh rate in the game settings. vsync will cap at 60fps as long as you are rendering at 60fps+, but if you're cards don't stay above 60fps average your fps will switch back and forth between 30fps (maybe 45fps? not sure) and 60fps. also, vsync increases input lag.

setting max fps to refresh rate limits the fps on a continuum of 0-60.

Try increasing, or decreasing the core speed. My 460 whines like CRAZY at 800 mhz but is completely silent at 900 (likely just too high to hear). See what changing the speed does for you...

I limit my fps to 60 in every possible game i can, don't like using vsync but i do just to minimize the whine, but it's still there.

@ tats
the whine is louder the higher the OC because of the fan.
